While Warner is the premier batsman and the leader of his side, ABD is arguably the biggest match-winner for RCB. Time and again, both the players have starred for their respective franchises and continue to do so.

Meanwhile, SRH finds themselves languishing at the bottom of the points table with a solitary win from five games. On the other hand, RCB is having a season to remember. They won the first four games before losing one to CSK. If they win this game against the Capitals, they would once again go top of the points table.

While SRH would look to get their campaign back on track, RCB would look to get back to winning ways after a slight stutter. For SRH to do well, Warmer would hold the key, and likewise for RCB de Villiers would be important.

SRH would now take on MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in their next game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
