RCB vs RR Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

The points table definitely show that RCB has won two out of the three matches they’ve played, but if you analyse their performance, they haven’t looked a team that can go on and win the title. They definitely possess a very strong batting line up but for them to consistently win games, their bowling needs to come good. They have conceded 200+ runs in two of the three matches and it’ll be a major cause of concern for Virat Kohli. Yuzvendra Chahal performed well in one game but leaked too many runs against MI. Same was the case with Washington Sunder and other bowlers. They need to deliver a collective performance in order to relieve some stress from their batsmen who can’t get you 200+ in every game. Another thing that RCB management might want to look into is the form of  Kohli himself. However, with other batsmen performing well, this isn’t as bigger issue as the earlier one. 

Rajasthan Royals were hammered in their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders but they’ll be hoping that it was just one bad day. Just like RCB, they too have a pretty solid batting line-up but lacks a little bit in their bowling department. Apart from Jofra Archer, none has looked threatening enough. However, when compared to RCB, they have a better bowling line-up which makes them favourites against Virat Kohli’s men.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

While their batting is performing exceptionally well, Virat Kohli will be sweating over the performance of his bowlers. Their bowling has lacked venom and are a major cause of concern for Virat Kohli. They brought in Isuru Udana and Adam Zampa in their previous game, both of them, however failed to deliver. As of now, the only change we can expect is one of Moeen Ali or Dale Steyn coming in place of Adam Zampa. We have no update on the fitness of Chris Morris. If he’s fit he can also made a cut into the team.

RCB Key Players

  • AB de Villiers – AB de Villiers is the only player in the RCB camp that has performed well in all the matches RCB has played in IPL 2020. When in full flow, he can destroy any bowling attack in the world. He is looking in good touch and will hope to deliver yet another match winning knock for RCB.
  • Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli hasn’t fired as of yet but he’s a class act and will be eager to get back among the runs. Rarely, Kohli hasn’t scored runs in three consecutive matches. If you’re someone who believes in gut feeling, you can back Virat Kohli to come good against Rajasthan.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal – Chahal had a mixed tournament so far. However, against a strong RR batting, he’ll be the trump card for Virat Kohli.

RCB Team Form

After a humiliating loss against Punjab, RCB bounced back against Mumbai to pull off a nerve racking super over victory.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Shivam Dube, Washington Sunder, Navdeep Saini, Dale Steyn/Adam Zampa/Moeen Ali, Isuru Udana, Yuzvendra Chahal

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Rajasthan Royals may have suffered a loss against KKR but they’ll back themselves to come good against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Ankit Rajpoot hasn’t been that good with the ball. RR should look beyond him and bring in either Mayank Markande or Varun Aaron as his replacement. 

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson has been impressive in the tournament and has looked a player class apart. He will once again hold the key for RR against RCB
  • Steven Smith: Steven Smith might have failed to deliver in RR’s previous match against KKR but the pitch at Abu Dhabi will suit him more than any other batsmen in the team. He’s expected to score big in the next game.
  • Jofra Archer – Jofra Archer has been thrilling for Rajasthan in the bowling department. He’s spitting venom with his bowling and will be hoping for an another stellar show against RCB

RR Team Form

After two back to back wins in their first two games, RR succumbed to a humiliating loss against KKR.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler (wk), Steven Smith (C), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatiya, Shreyas Gopal, Riyan Parag, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Mayank Markande/Varun Aaron, Jayadev Unadkat.
