IPL 2020, RCB, Virat Kohli

In the eliminator of the Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL 2020), Virat Kohli's (RCB) will take on (SRH) at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Friday.


David Warner-led SRH has made it to its yet another playoffs on the back of clinical wins -- defeating Delhi Capitals (DC), RCB and then Mumbai Indians (MI) in its last three matches after being on the verge of elimination.

RCB, on the other hand, had a good run but it slipped in the later stages of the league matches, however, a better net run rate ensured its place in the playoffs.

While RCB would go into this match as favourites, considering its line-up, taming the orange army won't be easy as the side has shownm immense improvement lately. SRH would draw a lot of confidence from its previous clash where it defeated MI by 10 wickets at Sharjah.

While RCB has a strong line-up with skipper Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal and AB de Villiers in good touch, facing SRH's bowlers woon't easy for the side.

In this do or die clash, both sides would look to give their best to realise IPL title dream.
