Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News for the IPL game with Kolkata Knight Riders

Bangalore Team News

It was a pretty strange decision by RCB on Sunday to decide to only go with three overseas players. 

They left out Dan Christian to give Rajat Patidar a game at number three backfired as Patidar only scored one and didn’t bowl. 

But they won the game anyway to make it three wins from three and a wonderful start to the competition. An alternative to bringing back Christian is to play Finn Allen instead, as an opener. 

It would mean Virat Kohli could go back to three, a good move because he hasn’t had much joy as an opener so far.

Likely XI: Allen, Padikkal, Kohli, Maxwell, De Villiers, Jamieson, Sundar, Ahmed, Patel, Siraj, Chahal

Rajasthan Team News

Rajasthan Royals got a stark reminder on Monday that this is going to be very tough from hereon.

Especially now that they’re without both Jofra Archer and Ben stokes.  

They got away with one when they chased a good score against the odds when they played Delhi but the truth is they don’t look well-equipped. 

Not enough batsmen are getting runs, no one is consistently taking wickets and the fielding hasn’t been great, either. 

One of the few positives has been the form of Chetan Sakariya with the ball; he’s taken six wickets in just three games.

Likely XI: Buttler, Vohra, Samson, Dube, Miller, Tewatia, Morris, Parag, Unadkat, Sakariya, Rahman 

Venue & conditions

We’ve had some high scores here at Mumbai over the past few games.

The interesting question is whether it’s better to bat or bowl first here. Teams normally prefer to chase but of course, getting to 180 or 190 creates its own pressure on the chasing side.

If given the chance, the Royals will prefer to chase. They may have messed up a chase against CSK on Monday but their record is much better batting second.

RCB vs RR Head-to-Head

These two are tied on 10 wins each over the years.

That’s not a great surprise given they have been two of the IPL’s big strugglers. It makes sense they’d sort of cancel each other out over the years.

But last year RCB won games between the two so may feel they have the edge in that regard.

Toss Winner

The Royals are 13-10 ahead on tosses and have won each of the last four. Add to the equation how bad Kohli is at tosses and it’s an easy decision to make.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back RCB to win @ 1.62 with Casumo

A 50/50 head to head record aside, RCB have all the trumps going into this one 

Not only do they appear to have a much better side ‘on paper’ but they’ve also started much better. 

In Glenn Maxwell, they have one of the competition’s most in-form batsmen and stacked like they are with high-class all-rounders, players who can change a game with either bat or ball. 

To win the Royals would need to be given about 170 to chase. Any more than that and they’re unlikely to get them and if they bat first, they should find themselves in trouble, as well.   

Go with RCB.

RR Top Bowler: Chris Morris

Recommended Bet: Chris Morris Royals Top Bowler @ 4.00 with 10CRIC

We already mentioned the good start that Sakariya has made to the IPL season with six wickets.  

Next best for Rajasthan is Chris Morris on five, who has bowled pretty well so far. 

There’s not much to choose between them in terms of wickets and they’re the same price at 4.0. So on this occasion it’s best to go with the more experienced man, which of course is Morris.

Today’s RCB vs RR Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Glenn Maxwell to be man-of-the-match  @ 11.0 with 10CRIC

Glenn Maxwell has been one of the stand-out players of the IPL so far. 

Playing in a star-studded batting line-up seems to suit him after a few failures at Punjab and he’s in the form of his life. 

He’s won two of the last three man-of-the-match awards and yet there are a few players shorter than him to get MOM here, such as Kohli, who hasn’t got going. 

 It would be a big ask to get it three times out of four. But as the in-form batsman of the team we think will win, he’s a good price at 11.0.

Bangalore vs Rajasthan Fun Statistics

  • Dan Christian has won 8 T20 domestic titles but never the IPL.
  • Virat Kohli is out of form with just 71 runs in three innings at a strike rate of 110.
  • Maxwell has a strike rate of 149 so far this IPL.
  • Skipper Sanju Samson is the only Royals batsman to go past 100 runs so far.
