RR vs RCB match preview

Rajasthan Royals

After 3 straight loses, Rajasthan Royals get back on track with a win against the KKR to boost their Net run rate and also their chances to make the final 4 of the Indian Premier League. An impressive bowling display which saw Yuzvendra Chahal the top wicket taker in the IPL, was topped by the sensational Yashaswi Jaiswal who blew the opposition away with his sublime batting. His form is one of the few reasons why this Royals season is still afloat despite the losses they have suffered. However they will want the middle order and also Jos Buttler to find form before the playoffs, which will help them solidify their chances to lift their second IPL title.

RR possible 11: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson(w/c), Joe Root, Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Murugan Ashwin, Sandeep Sharma, Kuldip Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal

Royal Challengers Bangalore

3 losses in the last 4 games, have seriously damaged the chances of the Royal Challengers Bangalore to make it to the playoffs. But all hope is not lost, as they still have control of their own fate. Saying that, this is a must win game for them and they will look to turn things around with this game. The 3 have been exceptional but it is just the 3 of them who are consistently putting their hands up. Mohammad Siraj too has been really good, and the bowling unit looks very good with Josh Hazelwood joining the attack. The middle order really needs to start firing, as the over dependency on the top 3 might cost them a spot in the playoffs.

RCB possible 11: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis(c), Anuj Rawat, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik(w), Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium is one of the few pitches where batting first is something that the teams winning the toss prefer to do. But going with the recent trend, batting second will be something that the captain will want to do . 

It will be hot and humid but will get cooler as the match progresses. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 37°C – 24°C range.

RR vs RCB Dream11 prediction

Our RR VS RCB Dream11 prediction for this match:

  • Wicket-keeper(s): Sanju Samson, Dhruv Jurel
  • Batter(s): Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Joe Root, Mahipal Lomror
  • All-rounder(s): Glenn Maxwell 
  • Bowler(s): Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Josh Hazelwood 
  • Recommended captain: Andre Russel 
  • Recommended vice-captain: Varun Chakravarthy

At the business end of the tournament, where you expect all your players to fire on all cylinders, selecting just 11 becomes a huge task. But as the game goes on, you need to select Dream 11 team keeping the form as well as the pitch under consideration.

The batsmen batting second seemed to have quite a good time at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in the last few games. Saying that the pitch has also offered a little bit to the pacers but mostly the spinners. Both teams are blessed with quality bowlers and batsmen making the selection of the 11 solely on the form they come in with. 

We would recommend having Virat Kohli as your Captain, as we feel he is due for a big inning, especially with his team in need. Mohammad Siraj has been terrific for the Challengers in this competition. He has picked up crucial wickets in the powerplay and will play a huge role in this game. Hence he should be your pick for your Vice Captain.

It is a do-or-die game for the Royal Challengers Bangalore and nothing other than a win will work for them. The middle order and the bowlers will have to get their A-game, in order to remain alive in the competition.

Chasing a target has proven to be quite fruitful in the past few games at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium. The Royal Challengers Bangalore will also want to chase down a target as their bowling department can leak runs toward the end.  

RR vs RCB Man of the Match prediction: Virat Kohli

The stage is set for Virat Kohli to score some big runs tonight and guide the Challengers towards victory. He will too be raring to go as the last few innings have not gone his way. He has been in good touch this season and will want to regain that form before the playoffs.
