Royal Challengers hope for big players to perform
- RCB will want Mohammed Siraj and Harshal Patel to step up
- Rajasthan Royals will be emphatic with their solid start
Rajasthan Royals struggled to balance their line-up up the two matches so far, but are still the only team to win two matches batting first in IPL 2022. Thanks to their formidable top-order and terrific bowling attack, Rajasthan Royals are well placed to beat RCB with odds of 2.05 to win the game.
RCB, on the other hand, have looked unconvincing with bat and ball so far this season. They will likely be pushing for an extra batter to go harder early on in the innings. They have odds of 1.73 to beat Rajasthan Royals but it will take some doing given the form RR batters are in.
RCB have won the last four head to head games
Royal Challengers Bangalore like facing Rajasthan Royals. They have won each of the last four encounters between these teams, running back till 2020. In 2019, RR won the only completed game between these sides. Overall, RCB have 12 wins and 10 losses in matches against Rajasthan Royals.
With a revamped unit and strong batters and bowlers, RR are in prime position to win against RCB, and we believe they can win today.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The battle in this game will be between the RCB’s bowling attack and Rajasthan ‘s phenomenal top-order that has Jos Buttler fresh off a century against Mumbai Indians. Sanju Samson is also in really good form for them.
Keep an eye on…
Virat Kohli: The former RCB captain is batting with more freedom than ever and is in good touch as these teams face off. Kohli will be the sheet anchor in the RCB side and will want to bat deep to make an impact.
Jos Buttler: The hundred against Mumbai should give Buttler a lot of confidence and against an RCB attack that has pace on the ball, Buttler will be a key player. Rajasthan will hope to give the Englishman good cushion to attack upfront.
