For the third match of IPL 2020, Sunrisers Hyderabad will face off against the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The two sides have been a part of many memorable matches, including a Super Over finish in 2013 and the summit clash of IPL 2016.
In the last meeting of these two sides in IPL 2019, RCB beat SRH by four wickets, courtesy of some fine batting by Shimron Hetmyer and Gurkeerat Singh Mann.
As for this season, SRH have made a few changes to their squad. The David Warner-led side have done away with the experience of Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda this year and in the IPL 2020 player auction, SRH signed the trio of Abdul Samad, Priyam Garg, and Virat Singh.
RCB too made some new signings from the auction, roping in the services of Australian star opener Aaron Finch, South African all-rounder Chris Morris among others.
While SRH qualified for the playoffs last season but lost out in the eliminator, RCB finished at the bottom of the points table, and the Virat Kohli-led side will be hoping to put up a better show in IPL 2020.
Date: 21st September 2020 (Monday)
