Today match prediction for RCB vs RR IPL 2021 Match 16, Dream11 Team Prediction, 22 April

Share

RCB vs RR IPL today match prediction: After the successful Chennai leg, RCB are playing their first game in Mumbai against RR. Virat Kohli’s men are leading the points table with 3 wins in 3 games and they certainly outplayed teams fair and square in the Chennai leg and one of the most important factors was the way in which RCB maximized their resources to get the best out of everyone.

One may argue that Washington Sundar wasn’t trusted with the ball as one would have liked but they have come out with a clear plan and have executed it to perfection.

RR have basically become like Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson or bust kind of a team and they have a difficult task at their hands to turn the tables from hereon.

RCB vs RR IPL today match prediction

Royal Challengers Bangalore

+ Virat Kohli should have a good game considering RR’s bowling attack and the type of wicket that will be on offer.

+ AB de Villiers’s entry point has been perfected by RCB in this season and Mohammad Siraj ‘s bowling at death has been a massive improvement.

– On good batting tracks, it will be interesting to see how their bowlers adapt as they are coming at the back of a Chennai leg where the wickets were sluggish.

– Devdutt Padikkal’s struggles versus high end pace is something that opposition teams will be vary of.

Rajasthan Royals

+ Jos Buttler found some form with the bat in the last game and should fancy RCB’s bowling attack

+ Chris Morris turned up big time with the ball against CSK and Chetan Sakariya was decent at death and is improving with each passing game.

– Jaydev Unadkat was exposed after a one off game against DC.

– Their lower middle order is just plain mediocre and Sanju Samson’s inconsistency is not helping them either.

RCB playing 11 (Likely)

Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal, Washington Sundar, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Daniel Sams, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Navdeep Saini, Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Who will win today IPL match

RCB are clear favorites going into this game as they are in red hot form. RR need a big knock from either of Sanju Samson or Jos Buttler to overcome RCB which is completely possible as well but there is a lot of pressure on these 2 batsmen to deliver time and again.
