RCB vs RR: The Royals set to battle it out in Mumbai
The match between CSK and KKR was a reminder of the thrill and excitement that IPL brings. Crossing the 200 mark, both the teams managed to get all the hearts beating. The excellent display of skills continues tonight as the Royal Challengers Bangalore take on the Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai at 7:30 PM IST.
RCB walk into the game after winning three games on the trot, while RR has won only one out of three games it has played. RCB appear to be the clear favourites but both the teams have a 10-10 win-loss record, indicating a cutthroat competition.
The three-time finalist, RCB has won all the games this season and will look to continue the dream run. The first two victories were with a narrow margin, but the recent game was an absolute delight. RCB thumped Kolkata and will ride into the game with the same confidence. Glenn Maxwell’s 78 off 49 balls was impressive, while AB de Villiers’ 76 runs off 34 balls was nothing short of a marvel.
In their bowling unit, Kyle Jamieson had picked up 3 wickets, and sent the batsmen back in the hut. Both Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel picked up two wickets each to add to KKR’s misery. Kohli’s men will look to have a rewind of the same action against RR tonight.
The Rajasthan Royals need a victory to jump up the points table and the team can bank on the likes of Chris Morris, David Miller, and the skipper Sanju Samson. Chris Morris had smashed 4 massive sixes in their game against DC, showing his might, while David Miller’s 64 off 43 balls impressed everyone. In RR’s game against CSK, Jos Buttler had missed scoring the half century by 1 run, and might look to secure it tonight.
For his brilliant bowling display, Jaydev Unadkat was names the Man of the Match in RR’s match against DC. Chetan Sakariya had scalped 3 wickets in their game against CSK, and might play a crucial role against RCB tonight.
In the battle of equals, who do you think will emerge victorious?
