IPL 2024 Match Today, SRH vs RCB: SRH hold the edge with 13 wins against RCB, who have won 10 such ties with 1 match ending in no result.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) are set to face off again in the 41st match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday (April 25). SRH, led by Pat Cummins, are coming off a thumping 67-run win against Delhi Capitals, while RCB, under the captaincy of Faf du Plessis, are fresh from their seventh defeat of the season following a heartbreaking 1-run loss to Kolkata Knight Riders.

RCB, on the other hand, conceded 222 against KKR and struggled to contain opposing teams' batting lineups. Despite their struggles, RCB can take some confidence from their ability to chase down high totals this season, including the clash against SRH at home where they scored 262 in response to the Hyderabad-based side's 287. However, the Bengaluru-based side will need to brace themselves for another challenging batting performance in Hyderabad.
