Betting Tips

  • RCB’s 100% winning start to the campaign has been built upon quality batting from Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers. Maxwell has 176 runs to his name and is second only to Shikhar Dhawan in the 2021 IPL runs list. de Villiers top scored in the first game and also made 76* in the victory against KKR. With the ball, Harshal Patel began the tournament with 5-27 against Mumbai Indians and has chipped in with two wickets in both games since.
  • Rajasthan Royals, so often an English dominated team, have their South African contingent to thank for their only win. David Miller (62) and Chris Morris (36*) getting them over the lane against Delhi Capitals. With the ball, Chetan Sakariya is leading the way with six wickets, 3-31 against Punjab Kings and 3-36 against CSK.
  • RCB’s form has meant they are yet to select overseas players Daniel Sams, Finn Allen, Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa. Rajasthan Royals have not played Australian Andrew Tye in any of their three games.

RCB vs RR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

Table toppers Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Rajasthan Royals in the fourth game for both sides in this year’s tournament. RCB have won three from three so far and saw off Kolkata Knight Riders by 38 runs in their last victory. Rajasthan Royals have been beset by injuries and withdrawals, Liam Livingstone the latest Royal to return to the UK, and have only one win to their name. Read on as we preview this clash of the 2021 IPL. The match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai and will get underway at 19:30 local time.

Led by Virat Kohli, RCB have been ruthless in each game so far and look set to go the distance in this year’s IPL. They haven’t even needed to rely on the captain’s runs with de Villiers on fire and Maxwell already ahead of his 2018 and 2020 contribution with the bat. 

Rajasthan Royals will have taken heart from Jos Buttler’s 49 and Sakariya’s second three wicket haul in defeat to CSK. Sanju Samson has also shown that he can lead from the front and currently has the highest score in the tournament (119).

RCB vs RR Match Toss Prediction

Virat Kohli followed the lead of Rohit Sharma on the weekend by choosing to bat first after every game had seen the toss winners elect to field. We expect to see him choose to bat first again if he calls correctly.

RCB vs RR Match Pitch Report

The games in Mumbai have produced higher scoring games than those in Chennai so far in the tournament. We expect a pitch which delivers scores approaching 200.

RCB vs RR Prediction

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

RCB will fancy their chances against a depleted Rajasthan Royals team and may be tempted to give some fringe players a run. However, that doesn’t really fit with the way Virat Kohli leads his team and we expect to see them select the same XI from their big win against KKR.

RCB Key Players

  • AB de Villiers - such has been his form that there is already talk of him returning to the South Africa team for the T20 World Cup in India later this year. He has hit 18 boundaries across his 3 innings so far.
  • Glenn Maxwell - the Aussie all-rounder has his sights set on his IPL run totals of 552 in 2014 and 310 in 2017. After three games he already has 176 runs to his name.
  • Harshal Patel - if anyone thought his five wicket haul against Mumbai Indians was a fluke, Patel has shown his quality in the following games as well. He has the most wickets and the best economy rate of all RCB bowlers.

RCB Team Form

Three wins on the bounce have got rid of any lingering memories of their awful finish to the 2020 IPL season. They are very much the form team in 2021. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli (c) , Devdutt Padikkal, Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers (wk), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Although Liam Livingstone hadn’t played in any of their games so far, his departure, due to covid bubble fatigue, leaves them with even less options after Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer were ruled out. They are depleted but need to find a way to bond the rest of the squad together and form a siege mentality.

RR Key Players

  • Jos Buttler - Without Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and now Liam Livingstone, Buttler is left to fly the England flag for Royals. He needs to build on his 49 against CSK and bat throughout the innings in this game.
  • Sanju Samson - Burst onto the scene this year with 119 but has made only 5 runs in his next 2 innings. Rajasthan need their skipper to lead from the front as they rebuild their team.
  • Chetan Sakariya - Two three-wicket hauls in three games has been an excellent start to life in the IPL for the young paceman. He will relish the opportunity to bowl at RCB’s big names in this match.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals won their last three fixtures in 2020 but have lost momentum in IPL 2021. With players departing, their task is getting harder by the game.

Jos Buttler, Manan Vohra, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Andrew Tye, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals Prediction

Not much has gone Rajasthan Royals’ way this year and they could probably do without coming up against RCB in top form. We expect Rajasthan to show more fight than they did in defeat against CSK, but ultimately Virat Kohli’s side will be too strong.

Final Verdict

Royal Challengers Bangalore are favorites to win against Rajasthan Royals at the odds of 1.61

RCB vs RR Dream11 Prediction

Mohammed Siraj can come to the party in Today's Game

Harshal Patel has emerged as a death over specialist for RCB this season. Mohammed Siraj though has bowled economical spells in all three matches but he has not been able to pick wickets. Seeing Deepak Chahar getting some swing in Mumbai, Siraj could be dangerous in Mumbai pitch if there will be a hint of swing in the pitch and can destroy RR batting.

    Rajasthan Royals have to play their best to beat in form RCB. Their top order has to click collectively if they want to win

  • BOSS

    Rajasthan will have to plan against RCB batters to control them. Everyone is scoring runs and Rajasthan bowlers are very bad in death overs. If they are unable to stop RCB Batsman upfront they will easily lose the game.
