With three back-to-back wins, a confident SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be looking to march ahead in the Indian Premier league (IPL) when they take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Eliminator at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Friday.
Bangalore have suffered four consecutive defeats and the Virat Kohli-led side last tasted a victory against Kolkata Knight Riders nearly two weeks ago.
However, RCB still managed to enter the playoffs, thanks to their first-half performances and the different permutations and combinations that went their way.
On Friday, Kohli and Co. will, however, face a must-win situation as another defeat will end their campaign.
