In the Spotlight

After a week of pulsating cricket, the caravan of the Indian Premier League moves onto the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru where Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on the Rajasthan Royals.

On that note, here’s a look at what Bet365 regarding the odds in today’s BLR vs RAJ IPL 2018 match:

Where: M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru

When: 15 April 2018, 4:00 PM

ODDS IN FAVOUR OF KEY PLAYERS FROM BOTH TEAMS

Brendon McCullum (RCB): The former Kiwi skipper looked in imperious touch in the previous game, and the chances of him putting up a good show in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match are 4/1, meaning a return of Rs 500 over a stake of 100.

Virat Kohli (RCB): Expect the RCB captain to come storming back after an indifferent first match (31 off 33 balls), and the chances of it are 13/5, meaning a return of 350 over a stake of Rs 100.

AB de Villiers (RCB): AB was going great guns in the previous match before a part-timer Nitish Rana brought a premature end to his innings, but he made amends with a superlative fifty against KXIP to steer his side to the victory, and the chances of AB going berserk in today’s BLR vs RAJ IPL 2018 match are 3/1, meaning a return of Rs 400 over a stake of 100.

Ajinkya Rahane (RR): Rahane has been a cornerstone for the Royals over the years and after an ordinary first match, where he could score just 12,  the odds stacked in favor of the skipper to perform in this all-important clash is 5/2,  meaning a return of 250 over a stake of Rs 100.

Ben Stokes (RR): The MVP of last year’s IPL returns this year with the Royals did not have a good game with both bat and ball but expect the all-rounder to come roaring back in today’s Rajasthan vs Delhi match,  and the chances of him putting up a good show today’s Raj vs Del match  are 9/2, meaning a return of 450 over a stake of Rs 100.

Top Bowlers:

Umesh Yadav (RCB): The Vidarbha pacer looked in imperious form in the last game and with figures of 2-27, was the pick of the RCB bowlers and he replicated it with another match-winning performance against KXIP, and the chances of Umesh replicating the same in today’s BLR vs RAJ IPL 2018 match are 11/4, meaning a return of Rs 375 over a stake of 100.

Yuzvendra Chahal (RCB): The vile leggie did not particularly have a good game against KKR, and he’d be looking to step-up in the familiar isles of the Chinnaswamy stadium, and the chances of him doing so in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match are 11/4, meaning a return of Rs 375 over 100.

Jaydev Unadkat (RR): The left-arm fast bowler turned heads when he racked up 11 crores at the IPL auctions and the odds in his favor of justifying his price tag are 11/4, meaning a return of Rs 400 over a bid of 100.
