Top 5 Fantasy Picks for RCB vs RR IPL 2021 Match

AB de Villiers

Mr. 360, AB de Villiers has been a pillar for this RCB team for years now. In IPL 2021, he looks in great touch with the bat and has helped the team in winning three games. As for his stats, he has produced a total of 125 runs with a breathtaking average of 62.50 & a strike rate of 189.39.

Glenn Maxwell

Glen Maxwell’s thunderous form has been one of the biggest reasons for RCB’s superb start this season. Maxwell has scored 176 runs in the first three matches with an average of 58.66. If he can keep up this form, he has the chance to take home the orange cap by the time this season is concluded.

Chris Morris

Chris Morris’ bowling has been truly amazing for RR this season. He has picked up 5 wickets with an average of 20.20. But he can bat as well which was on full display in RR’s victory over DC earlier this season.

Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli might be having an average season for his standards but he has still scored 71 runs in 3 matches. Knowing Kohli he will soon have a blockbuster performance so leaving him out of your fantasy team or combos on apps like Khiladi Adda is out of the question.

Chetan Sakariya

The young sensation Chetan Sakariya is proving his talent in IPL. He is no. 6 in the race for the purple cap with 6 wickets to his name. With time he will only get better and he could be the game changer in today’s match if can cheaply send RCB’s top order back to pavilion.

RCB vs RR Match Prediction

Prior to this match, RCB and RR have locked horns 23 times in IPL and they are tied for 10 victories each because 3 matches finished where no result was declared. Looking at the current form of the teams, RCB is in a great position to register their 11th victory over RR.
