Sunrisers Hyderabad will face off Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 65th match of the Indian Premier League 2023 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.

SRH, after a defeat against GT by 34 runs in their previous match and with only 5 wins in 13 matches, have been eliminated from the tournament. However, in their upcoming match against RCB, SRH will be determined to secure a victory and potentially disrupt RCB’s hopes of reaching the playoffs.

On the other hand, RCB, following a remarkable victory against RR by 112 runs in their previous match, have won 6 out of their 12 matches so far.
