RR vs RCB – IPL – Team Previews
During their recent match against the Kolkata Knight Riders, the Rajasthan Royals won the toss and elected to field first. KKR lost a few early wickets and could only manage a total of 149 runs for the loss of eight wickets. In response, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Samson played a match-winning partnership for Rajasthan, chasing down the target in just 13.1 overs. Jaiswal played an impressive knock, scoring 98 runs, which played a significant role in the victory of RR.
Buttler and Jaiswal have been in exceptional form, and the opening pair will be aiming to give a solid start. Samson has been a vital asset in the middle order, and he will look to provide quick runs with Joe Root and Dhruv Jurel. In the last game, Boult and Sandeep Sharma bowled well for the Royals.
Depending on whether they are batting or bowling first, the Royals might consider swapping Jaiswal with KM Asif. Joe Root is yet to make his IPL debut with the bat for Rajasthan Royals.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB are in desperate need of a win after losing their previous two matches against Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. The defeat to Mumbai was particularly damaging as RCB’s bowlers were hit all around the park, with all five of them conceding over 10 runs an over. Wanindu Hasaranga, in particular, was expensive, going for 53 runs.
At the top of the order, Du Plessis and Kohli have been in good form, and the team will be relying on them to provide another solid start. Maxwell has been the standout performer in the middle order, but he needs support from Lomror and Anuj Rawat. The lower middle order has struggled, and Dinesh Karthik needs to contribute with the bat.
In the last game against MI, Kedar Jadhav replaced Mahipal Lomror as an Impact Sub, but the move didn’t pay off. Should RCB bat first against the Royals, they could consider beginning their innings with Jadhav and then bring in either Mohammed Siraj or Harshal Patel to bowl.
