Venue: M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru, India
There is a lot in store for the Rajasthan Royals in the battle on Tuesday as every game is a knockout match for them. On the other hand, the Royal Challengers Bangalore is playing just for glory. According to our Dream11 expert predictions, Bangalore is a dangerous proposition for Rajasthan since Bangalore has nothing to lose. In the previous encounter between these two sides earlier in the season, Rajasthan won the match by 7 wickets.
Both the teams are unlikely to make any change for today’s IPL match.
Bangalore has always been a batting friendly surface and for today’s IPL match, it won’t be any different. The average first innings score in this season is 190 at this venue. Weather-wise there is a chance of rain on Tuesday.
He looks like a relieved man and he’s playing his natural game ever since he left the captaincy responsibility. According to our IPL expert’s prediction, the very free-flowing approach might come in handy for Rahane at Chinnaswamy. He also has stats to back him for coming up with a big knock in Bangalore as he has scored 140 runs in the last 3 games here. But there are few hurdles for Rahane in today’s IPL match, as per our Dream11 expert predictions, as he’s struggled while facing Chahal and Umesh Yadav, in recent times.
Can he replicate the same form against Virat and Devilliers one more time? The recent stats say yes for the much-anticipated contest of today’s IPL match. He dismissed Devilliers thrice in 27 balls and Virat Kohli twice in 8 balls. So he is a must have pick Rajasthan bowler in the Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.
AB de Villiers
He is coming into the match with two low scores on the trot and a third one might not serve well for his reputation or for the team. Coming back to the home ground, where he has scored 257 runs in the last 5 games might help to end the streak. But, he has overcome the Gopal challenge in order to do so.
He is coming back after a decent outing against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. He has a good record against Bangalore bowlers in recent times to continue from where he left in the previous match. Adding to it he has scored 114 runs in the last 3 games at the venue. He has to be cautious early on against Umesh Yadav, who got the better of him thrice in the last few T20s.
