RR vs RCB Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Rajasthan Royals will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 33rd match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai and is scheduled to begin at 2:00 PM local time

Rajasthan’s record chase of 226 in their second league game must have send chills down the spine of all the other teams of the competition. Two back to back 200+ scores, two consecutive wins to start the tournament, Rajasthan Royals wouldn’t have imagined themselves at the 6th position in the points table halfway into the tournament. Their batting that looked a force at the start of the tournament has collapsed face down. None of their batsmen look like scoring runs. Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler have run out of gas after their initial onslaught. Steve Smith too doesn’t look his usual self. Same goes with Robin Uthappa and other batsmen to follow. Yes, Rahul Tewatiya has shown promise but Rajasthan needs runs from their top order if they’re to revive their tournament. In the bowling department, Jofra Archer has been outstanding but the rest of the bowlers have been a big led down. Now, it’s a make or break situation for Rajasthan. Either they pick themselves up; or brace themselves for an early exit from the tournament.

The way RCB has played this season; they must have surprised themselves too. Well, jokes apart but Virat Kohli will be delighted to the way RCB has stood up to the occasion. The game against Punjab, however, showed that RCB is vulnerable when put under pressure. As a skipper, Virat Kohli was completely off target against Punjab. Whether it was his decision to send Washington Sunder and Shivam Dube ahead of AB de Villiers or not bowling Sunder in the powerplay, every move he tried, backfired on him. He need to be vary of the fact that even a slightest mistake can cost you the match in this format. Overall, the team is playing and their batting looks as brutal as it could be. The only problem for Virat Kohli will be the performance of their support bowlers. Mohammed Siraj has leaked too many runs for anyone’s liking. Kohli need to fix this quickly or it could nullify all the good work done in no time. Rajasthan has a very good team and though they’re out for form, we’ll back them to pip RCB as the conditions favour them more than Virat Kohli’s men.

RR vs RCB Toss Prediction

Toss could go either way but team winning the toss should bat first

Weather Report

The weather at Dubai is expected to make the players sweat with temperatures touching 36 degree Celsius.

Pitch Condition

The match will be played on the Dubai International cricket Stadium, Dubai. The average score on the ground this season has been around 160. That’s a very good total to defend considering that the pitch gets considerably slow in the second innings.

RR Team News

Rajasthan Royals is really struggling as a team. However instead of making changes to the playing XI, they’re most likely to shuffle their batting order. RR can swap Robin Uthappa from Ben Stokes as an opener. 

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson has been impressive in the tournament and has looked a player class apart in IPL 2020. He has been quiet in the last few games but will hold the key for RR against RCB
  • Ben Stokes: Ben Stokes knock of 41 against Delhi showed that he’s in great form. He is a match winner and RR will be hoping for a big performance from him in a crunch 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 a stellar show against RCB. 

RR Team Form

With 3 wins and 5 losses, RR is going through a pretty lean patch.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler (wk), Steven Smith (c), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatiya, Shreyas Gopal, Riyan Parag, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Karthik Tyagi, Jayadev Unadkat.

RCB Team News

Even though RCB lost their previous game against Punjab, there is no need for Virat Kohli to make too many changes in the playing XI. In all circumstances, he’s expected to play the same team. Mohammed Siraj, however can be replaced by Pawan Negi or even Umesh Yadav.

RCB Key Players

  • AB de Villiers: AB de Villiers played a brutal innings against KKR and looked batsman that is at the peak of his game. He might have missed out in the game against Punjab, he’ll certainly be eager to do well against RR.
  • Virat Kohli: King Kohli has been on a roll in the last few matches. In almost every game, Kohli has been among the runs. Expect him to play another big knock against Rajasthan
  • Yuzvendra Chahal/Washington Sunder: The spin duo had an off day against Punjab but they’ve been the main stay of RCB’s success in the tournament. They’ll be the trump card for RCB on a slow Dubai wicket.

RCB Team Form

RCB are coming back from a nervy loss to Kings XI Punjab.
