Indian Premier League, 2019 | Rajasthan Royals  vs Royal Challengers Bangalore PREVIEW

RR vs RCB  Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Jaipur, April 02, Tuesday at 08:00 PM IST

The only two teams – Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore – yet to win a game in Vivo IPL 2019 will be squaring off against each other at Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur on Tuesday night. The starting week of the tournament has been disappointing for both Rajasthan and Bangalore as the two sides are reeling at the bottom spots in the ladder and are in desperate need of a win to resurrect their campaign. The clash between the two sides will begin at 08:00 PM IST tomorrow night.

RCB backing itself to come back stronger

One of the biggest franchise in terms of fan power – RCB has once again started the campaign from the bottom spot. With three defeats in as many encounters, RCB is placed at bottom spot in the league standings. Boasting the firepowers of V Kohli, AB de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Moen Ali and Parthiv Patel in the batting ranks, RCB has failed to deliver on the most of the occasion.

The scenario is again the same – the overdependence on V Kohli and AB de Villiers. After folding up at mere 70 runs in the opener at MA Chidambaram, RCB got bowled out for 113 runs while chasing 231 runs total against SRH on Sunday. The same is the case in bowling, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, M Siraj, Moen Ali have looked off-colour in bowling.

The good news for RCB is that Marcus Stoinis and N Coulter-Nile are set to join the squad as the Australian duo is has left from UAE, after whitewashing Pakistan by 5-0 in the ODI series.

So, with a couple of changes in the playing 11, RCB will look to get back to returning ways with a win in Sawai Man Singh.

Royals gear up to turn the tides at their fortress

Rajasthan Royals are gearing up for their second home encounter on Tuesday against RCB. They have played good cricket but it’s the luck which is not in their favour so far. In the first home game against Kings XI Punjab, it was Ashwin mankading R Buttler which proved out to be the turning point of the game as RR lost it by 14 runs.

In the second game against SRH, it was David Warner’s quickfire (69 of 37 balls) that overshadowed Sanju Samson’s unbeaten ton while in the last game against CSK, RR failed to pull off in the last over and succumbed to 8 runs defeat.

While RR will be the favourites for tomorrow’s clash, let’s see who takes an edge and opens the account tomorrow.

Head to head:

Total- 19

Royal Challengers Bangalore- 08

Rajasthan Royals- 09

**Both the sides are going to make a couple of changes

Safest bets from RR –

Safest bets around overseas players – Joss Buttler, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes & Jofra Archer

Safest bets around Indian players – Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, R Tripathi & K Gowtham

Must-have picks from RR –

Joss Buttler and Sanju Samson have scored runs for RR so far. Buttler struck a fifty in the first game while Samson slammed an unbeaten ton against SRH in the second game. These two are must-have picks from RR.

Jofra Archer has been phenomenal with the ball in almost every game. His little cameo with the bat against CSK in the last game also makes him a potential match-winner. He shouldn’t be missing out from any fantasy team.

Ben Stokes and K Gowtham are the key all-rounders in the side who contribute well with both bat and ball.

Safest bets from RCB –

Safest bets around overseas players – AB de Villiers

Safest bets Indian players – V Kohli, U Yadav, Y Chahal & P Patel

Must-have picks from RCB –

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are the only two responsible power-hitters in the side

U Yadav and Y Chahal are the prime bowlers for RCB but at times prove out to be very expensive

Parthiv Patel can give a good start. However, if compared with J Buttler in wicketkeeping, he stands nowhere. Buttler will be the right pick in wicketkeeper.
