rcb vs rr Match Prediction & Analysis

Royal Challengers Bangalore are having their best start in the 13 editions of the IPL so far with 3 wins in 3 matches in their Chennai leg. They now move ahead to the wankhade Stadium, Mumbai for their next round of matches. They will be high on morale and confidence after their performances so far. Rajasthan Royals started off the season with two nail biting finishes with one win and one loss but they succumbed to a big defeat against CSK last night. They will look to make a comeback in this match and take advantage of the fact that RCB will play their first game here.

Teams Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Glenn Maxwell (78 runs) and AB De Villiers (76 runs) played stunning knocks to revive their team from 9/2 to a massive score of 204 runs on a tough pitch. Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal have got starts but are yet to make a big score. They miss a No.3 batsmen with Kohli moving to the opening position.

Their pace department Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, and Kyle Jamieson have been very impressive in the matches played so far. Spinners Yuzi Chahal and Washington Sundar bowled their full quota of overs last night and picked up crucial 3 wickets between them.

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell has been phenomenal for RCB with scores of 39, 59, & 78 in three matches. He has provided the momentum to their batting despite the quick wickets in all the matches.      

Harshal Patel – Patel leads the bowling charts with 9 wickets at an economy rate of less than 6 RPO. His ability to bowl the slower balls and cutters have never allowed the batsmen to score runs feely in the death overs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing XI:

Virat Kohli (c), Devdutt Padikkal, Finn Allen/Daniel Sams, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers (wk), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Rajasthan Royals Preview

Rajasthan Royals faltered badly in the stiff 189-run chase last night to lose the match by 45 runs. Jos Buttler looked good for his 49 runs and was the only batsmen who threatened the chase last night. David Miller, Sanju Samson, and Chris Morris have scored runs with the bat but are inconsistent so far.

Chetan Sakariya, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman, and Jaydev Unadkat have formed the four-men pace attack or the team. They might replace Mustafizur with Andrew Tye in this match. Rahul Tewatia and Riyan parag have been their spin bowlers and they have bowled the fifth bowler`s quota of overs so far.

Top players to bet on:

Jos Buttler – Buttler has a good record on this venue and he will enjoy the ball coming onto the bat nicely. His wicket started the collapse for RR last night and he will look to make a big score in this match.

Chetan Sakariya – Sakariya was exceptional with the ball last night as he picked up 3 crucial wickets. He will look to add more wickets to his name in this match and march ahead in the purple cap race.   

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing XI:

Jos Buttler, Yashaswi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman/Andrew Tye

Weather Conditions

Mumbai will have temperature in the ranges early to mid-30s and it will be hot and humid with cool breeze along the seaside.

Venue Details

Wankhade has been of the surfaces with true bounce and pace on offer in India. Pacers will swing the new ball while batsmen will enjoy scoring runs easily here. We expect scores in the range of 170 -180 runs in this match at this venue.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 4-2 win-loss ratio in their favor and the dew factor will further tempt the captains to bowl first at this venue.  

RCB vs RR Winning Prediction

RCB has a good mix of young and experienced bowlers in both the pace and spin departments. Their batting relies heavily on the trio of Virat, Maxwell, and AB with latter two in sublime form. Lack of established No.3 is the only problem so far. RR batting unit have been hugely inconsistent with players blowing hot and cold so far including their skipper Sanju Samson. Their spin bowling department lacks a quality wicket taker which might haunt them if the pitch slows down. We expect RCB to continue their impressive run of form in this match too.

RCB will win the match & register their fourth straight win
