The first Southern derby of IPL 2020 is on the cards as Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday. Virat Kohli will begin his quest for an elusive IPL title with Royal Challengers Bangalore as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening IPL encounter in Dubai on Monday.
Following a nightmarish 2019 season when they finished last, RCB seem to have a much better balance but their ability to hit late in the innings is yet to be tested. For SRH- Kane Williamson doesn’t find a spot but Mitch Marsh plays. For RCB, Moeen Ali is on the bench while Joshua Phillipe plays. The pitch is the same as yesterday.
