Will RCB continue their Winning Streak in IPL 2021 – RCB vs RR Match Preview

In this edition of IPL, RCB is the only unbeaten Team till now , after the successful victory against the big teams like Mumbai Indians , Kolkata Knight riders their confidence level is skyhigh. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals did not start their campaign well in this edition except the win  against Delhi Capitals  which came from the extraordinary performance  of Miller and Morris. Added that unavailability of star players like Archer , Stokes looks this team vulnerable to the opponent . They are missing the deadly four overs of Jofra Archer  in this  IPL. Surely, this match will also be a run feast  with the kind of batsmans they have in both teams.

Head to Head:

Both Teams played 20 games , from each team having the 10 victories on their side, the result of this match will lead this head count. 

Match Preview:

 Royal Challegers Bangalore, would like to continue their winning streak in Wankhede to seal the top spot in the points table .Presence of AB De Villiers and Maxwell created a good balance in their playing XI combination . In previous editions , RCB’s victories mostly depended on their batting strength , but this year their bowling attack in chepauk gave the winning moment especially bowlers like Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj was magnificent

Rajasthan Royals, were having bad times on their batting line up skipper Sanju Samson should take charge to lead the batting .Jos Butler and Miller must continue their form against  RCB , to move forward in the points Table. Chetan Sakariya wicket taking ability and his variations are quite positive for RR, he took Dhoni wicket in his previous game.Lets hope this young lad will go high by picking the wickets of AB and virat Kohli in this match against RCB.

Players to Watch out:

Mohammed Siraj, is the player from RCB we should watch , since Wankhade pitch moves in seam compared to Chepauk. So, he might be the go to bowler for Virat Kohli in these kinds of conditions. 

Jos Butler , is the player from RR we should watch, he had a great batting against CSK bowling if he did not got out , he might have won the game single handedly, so he would like to continue the batting form against RCB in this match , since he knew the conditions better than the opponent by playing three matches in the same conditions.

Expected Playing XI Changes:

Royal Challengers Bangalore  :

RCB were coming from the slow pitch chepauk, surely they will add one pace bowler who has more variation on their packet .So , Daniel Sams is available for selection, he is a left arm bowler his presence in the bowling line up will give more options for the skipper. So he is the good option to replace Shahbaz Ahmed . He also adds good batting depth in the Team. In previous match against KKR , RCB played with only three overseas players.

Rajasthan Royals:

RR looks quite vulnerable in both batting and bowling , we might expect a couple of changes in their side, Shreayas Gopal will play in their team combination by replacing Unadkat since AB and Virat have been struggling against leg spinners . And the other change, Vohra is still struggling to middle the ball in the previous match, personally I would like to see Jaiswal as the other change at the top order along with Jos Butler by replacing Vohra .

  • Virat Kohli
  • Devdutt Padikkal
  • Rajat Patidar
