RCB vs RR IPL : Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 16th match of Indian Premier League 2021 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday, 22 April. Royal Challengers have three wins from three matches while Rajasthan Royals have one win from three matches.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have had a great start of IPL 2021. Their batting as well as bowling are in fine form but Mumbai will be a new challenge for them. Captain Kohli has played couple of good innings while Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers have played some wonderful knocks. Other batsmen like Devdutt Padikkal, Rajat Patidar have been awful so far but they will get more chances and will look to give their best. While in bowling Harshal Patel and Mohammad Siraj have been good so far and they are getting good support from Kyle Jamieson and Yuzvendra Chahal.
On the other side, Rajasthan Royals have suffered some setbacks as Jofra Archer is currently out due to injury, Ben Stokes too is out due to injury and now Liam Livingstone has left the IPL due to fatigue. So captain Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler will have to step up and it will be interesting to see if they continue with Manan Vohra who has been poor so far and the likes of David Miller, Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia have to show consistency in middle and lower order. In bowling Chris Morris and Mustafizur Rahaman have been average and they need to do much better and new comer Chetan Sakariya has been excellent so far and team needs to play in a unity.
A list of all the major stats and records ahead of the 16th match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals in Mumbai.
