Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) take on SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Match 54 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. Currently, RCB are fourth in the IPL 2022 Points Table with 12 points from 11 games (six wins and five defeats). In their previous fixture, RCB defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 13 runs with last year’s Purple Cap winner Harshal Patel taking three wickets.
