Kane Richardson RCB: Royal Challengers Bangalore head into their next game against Rajasthan Royals with confidence as high as any champions-elect team may exude. It’s good to see RCB finally clicking as a team, and making more of a challenge out of themselves. That said, it’s still too early to fall into the trap of form, good or bad, whichever way it is. There are plenty of games left in the season, any team can lose its way, while the teams fluttering on the wrong end may come knocking on the door of the playoff. So far so good, RCB can look at the top four as the least target following a brilliant start to the season. The game against Rajasthan Royals is another opportunity to extend the 100% run.
You could excuse Virat Kohli for all the confusion at the toss against RR. After all, the RCB captain has seen his luck deserted him when it comes to the Toss; with both as an Indian Team captain and RCB leader.
The 32-year-old did win the toss and opted to field first at the Wankhede Stadium. He also confirmed one change in RCB playing 11.
Confirmed change in RCB playing 11:
In: Kane Richardson
Out: Rajat Patidar
Australian bowler Kane Richardson replaced Indian batsman Rajat Patidar. That’s a clear tactical change as RCB have sacrificed one batsman for the bowler, but considering the form of Maxwell and Villiers, and not to mention King Kohli in the team, it looks like a good change at the moment. Richardson adds depth to the bowling attack.
Rajasthan Royals have also gone with one change in their team with Shreyas Gopa replacing Jaydev Unadkat. RR have won just once in the first four rounds and could do with a win here.
