RCB vs RR Dream11 Prediction: 3 Players Battles To Watch Out For In Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2021 16th Match, 22 April

Share

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals Dream11: Sitting at the top and looking down upon every other team in the league, even RCB fans could be excused for rubbing their eyes in utter ecstasy and take a second glance at the IPL 2021 table. So far so good, RCB are still unbeaten, boasting the best record in the league, and the only team with zero reflecting under the defeat column. There’s no reason to flirt with the winning combination. But Rajasthan Royals are losing their way already, still searching for that perfect combination which may guide them to the promise lands. But when even captain is at the mercy of form, the team management can do only so much temptation with the playing 11. Sanju Samson is stumbling under the bridge. He has to come good. There’s no other substitute or the season will be a mirror image of failure of last season.


IPL 2021: 3 Players Battles To Watch Out For

1. Virat Kohli vs Chetan Sakaria

You may be wondering at this matchup but don’t disregard Chetan Sakaria.

Kohli may be looking like dominating this battle but Sakaria’s form and his confidence can’t be ignored.
