RR vs BLR today match prediction: Rajasthan Royals had all the opportunity in the world to break the tournament wide open when they played Delhi Capitals in their last league game. They could have easily won the game had they taken the game a bit deeper. But, they lost convincingly in the end and failed to climb up in the points table.
They have so many problems and Steve Smith's form is the major concern for them. They cant even drop Steve Smith as he is the captain of the team.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost 2 in 2 against the 8th placed team in the competition in Kings XI Punjab. Their approach in the middle overs has been a massive concern for them. They are heavily dependent on AB de Villiers at the moment and one game or the other, their reluctance to play big shots in the middle overs might bite them big time
RR don’t have a proper support bowler for Jofra Archer who is breathing fire in this competition and they might want to look at the raw pace that Oshane Thomas brings in to the picture for once.
In today IPL match prediction, let us point the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
The form of Jofra Archer has been their lifeline in this season. The way he bowls 2 overs with the new ball and giving breakthroughs for their team is helping RR to restrict the opposition. The opening pair of Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are showing some terrific intent upfront.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (BLR)
They are fresh out of a disappointing loss to KXIP where the game went to the last ball when it should have been finished by 18th over. The form of Yuzvendra Chahal and the fast bowling duo of Chris Morris and Navdeep Saini is very good. Chris Morris showed good signs with the bat.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
There is no proper support bowler for Jofra Archer in pace department. The form of Sanju Samson and Steve Smith are troubling them from a long time now. Their middle order has been very bleak as well with Robin Uthappa doing no good in the middle order.

RR vs BLR dream11 team for today’s match
The fantasy teams will get trickier towards the second half of the tournament and in dream11 prediction, let us discuss the important players from both the sides
Jos Buttler: He ramped a 156 KMPH delivery for a 4 over fine leg in the previous game and there he stamped his authority and showed his intent that he is not going to mess around in the name of responsibility. He has had a terrible season by his standards but today could be his day.
Virat Kohli: Though, Virat Kohli's strike rate in middle overs is in focus at the moment, he is getting runs consistently which is all needed for a fantasy player
Chris Morris: 3 games. 3 magnificent performances. He has 4 wickets and also showed why he was given 10 crores when he made a 8 ball 25 against KXIP. He should be a direct entrant in any team.
Jofra Archer: His pace is something that no batsmen seems to be comfortable with. He has 12 wickets under his name and is chasing Kagiso Rabada for that purple cap.
Other picks: Ben Stokes, AB De Villiers and Yuzvendra Chahal can all be quality picks.
