RR vs RCB Team Previews

Rajasthan Royals

The Rajasthan Royals have put up an excellent display so far, winning each of its 3 matches. As a result, it is sitting in second place, trailing the Kolkata Knight Riders in NRR.

Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal were among the top opening pairs of last season but the duo has struggled to give the team a strong start this time around. Nevertheless, a strong middle order has ensured that the Royals have got enough runs on the board.

Riyan Parag has enjoyed a good run, scoring 2 half-centuries in 3 matches, and is second on the list of top run-getters this season. He, along with Sanju Samson, will play an important role with the bat in this match. With players like Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmeyer, and Shubham Dubey coming in lower down the order, there is plenty of depth in the batting.

The bowlers have done a fantastic job so far. Yuzvendra Chahal is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 6 wickets. He will be joined by Ravichandran Ashwin in the spin department. Nandre Burger and Trent Boult will lead the attack with the new ball.

The duo has picked up 5 wickets each so far.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

As RCB continues its hunt for the elusive IPL title, the team hasn’t had the best of starts this season. With 3 losses in 4 matches, RCB is placed in the bottom half of the points table.

Virat Kohli is in scintillating form with the bat and has scored 204 runs at an average of 67.66. He is the leading run-scorer this season and his knocks include 2 half-centuries. However, he has received very little support at the other end. Faf du Plessis, who was among the top two run-getters last season is yet to play a big inning.

Similarly, the likes of Rajat Patidar, Anuj Rawat, Glenn Maxwell, and Cameron Green are yet to get going. The inconsistencies continue in the bowling unit as well. Mohammed Siraj has managed to pick up only 3 wickets in 4 matches.

Maxwell and Yash Dayal are the leading wicket-takers for the team with 4 wickets each. Reece Topley did join the team in the last match and will provide a quality option in the seam department.

Pitch and Conditions

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur is a high-scoring venue. The two matches played here this season have seen an average first-inning score of around 185. The surface is dry and there is very little help for the quicker bowlers. The batsmen will find the ball coming nicely onto the bat. The pitch does slow down a bit in the second half and will help the slower bowlers.

Anything over 180 will be tricky to chase.

The weather is likely to be warm and dry with temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius. 


RR vs RCB Betting Tips

While RCB has plenty of quality players, especially in the batting unit, they have failed to perform well and have paid the price. On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals have done well as a unit, and playing with a home advantage, they are likely to continue with the winning momentum.

Bet on the Rajasthan Royals to win.

    Under 12.5 (2.05)


The pitch at Jaipur isn’t the easiest to bowl on and the bowlers will need to bend their backs if they want to pick up wickets. The two matches played here season have both seen fewer than 12 wickets fall and we can expect a similar outcome in this game.

  1. Stake


    Virat Kohli to be the top batsman for RCB



Kohli is in excellent form for the Royal Challengers and is also the leading run-scorer of the season so far. He has scored two half-centuries in his last 3 innings and was the top batsman for the team in both of those games. With the batting around him being rather inconsistent, Kohli has a good shot at becoming the top batsman yet again.

    Total runs in the highest scoring over of the match

    Over 20.5 (1.80)


The Sawai Mansingh Stadium offers an excellent batting track allowing the batsmen to play their shots naturally. As the boundaries here aren’t the longest and with plenty of hard-hitting batsmen playing for both teams, we are bound to have a couple of high-scoring overs.
