Royal Challengers Bangalore has always been one of the top teams of IPL. But this team has never won an IPL season despite reaching finals twice. RCB is owned by Siddharth Mallya, son of Vijay Mallaya. The home ground for the Royal Challengers is Chinnaswamy Stadium. This IPL 2016 season, Virat Kohli will captain the Royal Challengers. Virat Kohli who is presently one of the best batsmen in the world brings a lot of hope for Royal Challengers this season. The team coach is Daniel Vettori.
Sunrisers Hyderabad which is relatively a newer team is owned by Kalanithi Maran, Founder of Sun TV channel network. This team will be captained by David Warner in IPL 2016. The home ground for this team is Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium. The head coach of the team is Tom Moody.

RCBvsSRH – 12 Apr 2016 Match – Live updates, via Twitter
Royal Challengers squad has 27 cricketer with them from which, probabily, Virat Kohli (captain), AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav/KL Rahul (wk), Iqbal Abdulla, S Aravind Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Stuart Binny, Adam Milne and Yuzvendra Chahal will play in the 12th April match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Whereas in Sunrisers Hyderabad, there are 23 cricketers in their squad and from which most probably David Warner (captain), Naman Ojha (wicketkeeper), Shikhar Dhawan, T Suman, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kane Williamson, Moises Henriques, Ashish Nehra Karn Sharma, Ashish Reddy, Mustafizur Rahman, will play in this first match against Royal Challengers.
Royal Challengers who always performed well in IPL match but never get the trophy, we hope that this time they will be able to break the jinx and won the season as this time they are captained by one the best cricketer of the present time, Virat Kohli. Kohli has recently in ICC World T20 bag the player of the tournament award for his superb performance. So there is a lot of hope from Royal Challengers in this season of IPL.
If we talk about the Sunrisers, it also has a good team, no doubt. Eoin Morgon, Trent Boult, and Kane Williamson are some of the cricketer in the team who can give a tough fight to the Royal Challengers.
So, It is difficult to say which team will win as both the teams have very good players and equal chance to win the match. Still the combination of Virat Kohli and other top cricketer such as Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson is something hard to beat. I feel, the chances of Royal Challengers are a little bit on the higher side than Sunrisers.
We wish both the teams good luck for IPL9.
