Royal Challengers Bangalore to win this match
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (in UAE)
The first of many IPL doubleheader will start today, with Steve Smith led RR taking on the Virat Kohli led RCB. Both teams are coming off from contrasting situations. RCB who had a dismal show against KXIP came back strongly against MI and showed discipline in almost all departments of the game, except death bowling. After having had the match comfortably in their hands after the first 10 overs, RCB almost gifted MI a win in the last encounter, only to save themselves later in the super over. If such misery continues in the death overs, then they are in very serious trouble. Other than that the major factor concerning them is the form their captain Virat Kohli. He is struggling for form at the moment, and if he too comes good, then that batting line-up is as deadly as it can get. Zampa and Udana who came into the eleven in the last match, showed great promise, except in death overs. Despite that, they are expected to keep their place. The spin trio of Washington Sundar, Yuzi Chahal, and Adam Zampa holds the key for RCB’s chances in this match. No changes are expected in their eleven.
RR on the other hand had a game to forget in Dubai last time. After cruising along in both the matches played in Sharjah, they showed great problem in adapting to the larger grounds of Dubai. If that still continues, they stand no chance in Abu Dhabi. Their areas of concern are domestic middle-order batting and death bowling. Robin Uthappa who is struggling badly may make way for Manan Vohra.
RCB Playing 11: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers, Gurkeerat Singh, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Adam Zampa, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal
RR Playing 11: Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, Manan Vohra/Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Undakat, Ankit Rajpoot
