RCB have a poor net run rate
- Gujarat Titans might look to shuffle their line-up
- Bangalore are all but out if they lose
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s topsy turvy ride in IPL 2022 has culminated in a key clash with table toppers Gujarat Titans on Thursday. RCB not only need to win, but need to do it with a good margin to stand a chance to qualify… They have odds of 2.05 to beat Gujarat Titans.
Gujarat, on the other hand, have qualified already and are on 20 points with 10 wins already in the season. They will hope to shuffle a few players up and experiment for the playoffs, which might make this a close contest. GT’s chances of winning today stand at 1.75
How the season has gone…
RCB started the season with a bang, but soon lost steam as they started losing games. Some massive losses meant that their net run rate crept well into the negatives and now to qualify, RCB need to hope that they beat GT big and Mumbai beat Delhi.
Gujarat Titans have a solid bowling unit that can counter RCB and are favourites to win this clash.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
A key factor in this game would be how the Gujarat bowling line-up changes for this fixture. Will they rest the likes of Rashid Khan? If so, RCB might have an opening that they will want to exploit.
Keep an eye on…
Faf du Plessis: Leading the side and the batting unit is a massive responsibility and Faf du Plessis has done that with distinction. In this key fixture, RCB will hope he sets the tone upfront to push Gujarat Titans back.
Sai Kishore – Rashid Khan: The impressive spin duo will be the biggest threat to RCB’s chances. Sai Kishore can be restrictive while Rashid Khan remains a potent threat on his own
TIP: Faf du Plessis has stepped up every time his team needed that. Back Faf du Plessis at 3.81 to hit a fifty!
