RCB hope to come out of 68 all out
- RCB’s batting woes a major concern
- Rajasthan Royals’ batting depth not posing issues
Royal Challengers Bangalore come off the back of a ridiculous 68 all out in the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad and their batting has been a big question mark. With Virat Kohli making ducks in both of his last two innings, RCB are under pressure to fire on the batting front. They have odds of 1.89 to win this game.
Rajasthan Royals, meanwhile, have been on a high with Jos Buttler smashing three hundreds in the season. RR’s batting depth hasn’t quite come into the picture given Buttler’s form. With their top five in big form, RR have odds of 1.89 to come out as the winner tonight.
What happened earlier in the season
RCB won the last match against Rajasthan Royals in the season by four wickets, with Dinesh Karthik showcasing an exhibition of hitting in the death overs. Jos Buttler fired for Rajasthan Royals again in the first leg, smashing 70* from the top for Rajasthan.
Rajasthan Royals have a strong batting line-up and are our pick to win this one.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The contest this match will be between Jos Buttler and RCB’s bowling attack in the powerplay overs. Buttler has been smashing it to all parts of the ground this season and RCB will bank on Josh Hazlewood and Mohammed Siraj to put a leash on him.
Keep an eye on…
Virat Kohli: Two golden ducks in his last two matches, Virat Kohli is under pressure to step up for RCB. With him no longer captain and former India head coach Ravi Shastri asking him to go on a break, it will be interesting to see Kohli’s riposte.
Yuzvendra Chahal: Amidst the Buttler fury, Chahal’s excellent season with the ball has almost gone unnoticed despite him being at the top of the wickets chart. Can Chahal fire against his former franchise?
TIP: Chahal is the leading wicket-taker in the season. Back Chahal at 3.18 to be the top match bowler for RR!
