Sunrisers Hyderabad earlier won the toss and elected to field. While the RCB playing eleven remained unchanged, the Sunrisers elected to bring in Praveen Kumar and Ashish Reddy in place of  Ishant Sharma, who was expensive during the previous game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), as well as Parvez Rasool. While RCB will look to win their second consecutive game, while SRH will look to make amends after conceding a major 45-run defeat to CSK.
