Ground Prediction and head to head stats:
The match between RCB and RR is going to be played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. We’ve seen good runs at this pitch and a score above 200 is also difficult to defend. Last night KKR almost pulled off a miraculous victory and both the teams will be aware of it.
The rivalry between these two sides has been neck to neck with both the teams winning 10 match each.
RCB has not lost a single match so far in this season and would like to continue their winning streak against Rajasthan.
Important players for your team
The big show has 161 runs from 8 innings at an average of 26.8 vs RR. He has an identical record in both innings. However, it is a different Maxi in 2021. He currently has the second-most runs (176 runs, avg. 58.66, SR 149.15).
Kohli fell early in the last match courtesy of a blinder from Tripathi. Against Royals, he has not been at his very best, in 21 innings 482 runs at an average of 26.8. However, his averages go up to 45.3 while batting second. Can he finally fire in this tournament?
Predicting Samson’s performance is one of the most difficult things in Fantasy sports. After an incredible performance in the first match, he has failed in two subsequent innings. Against RCB he has 259 runs from 14 innings at an average of 19.9.
Miller’s best score of 101 came against RCB years back. Kohli called that innings one of the best he has ever seen! Overall, against RCB he has 251 runs from 10 innings at an average of 27.9.
Game changing players
Padikkal has spent a good time at the crease without fully firing. The Wankhede will suit his style of batting. He has 82 runs against RR from his 2 innings vs RR at an average of 41.
After being released from RCB, this will be Dube’s first match against them. So far, he has not done much in the competition; he might have saved his best performance for his previous team. Not to forget he is also playing on his home ground.
Best Overseas Picks:
AB De Villiers
Mr.360 has got a superlative record against the Royals. In 19 innings he has 648 runs at an average of 46.3. Overall, in his T20 career, ABD has done well batting first comparatively. He will be a great choice of C/VC.
Like Dube, this will be Morris’s first match against RCB after he was released. In past, he has played 10 matches against them and picked 9 wickets. If a huge target is to be chased, he will have a huge responsibility to score in the death overs.
Magic Over Tips
- If Bengaluru Bats first – RCB starts off cautiously and if a wicket falls down, then the incoming batsmen like to play aggressive cricket hence having magic over from 3rd to 8th over can be very fruitful.
- If Bengaluru Bats second – Targets are chased at Wankhede hence keeping magic over from 15th to 19th can be very effective.
- If Rajasthan Bats first – RR openers start with a bang and like to go after the bowlers, hence you can select any powerplay over as magic over.
- If Rajasthan Bats second – If a huge target is set, then the pinch hitters will come into the picture hence you can select 16th to 20th over as the magic over.
