Royal Challengers Bangalore face Rajasthan Royals in match number 11 of the Indian Premier League at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Sunday. Both the teams have one win and one loss each. Their previous matches ended in wins, so they would be keen to continue the good run.
RCB got the better of Kings XI Punjab in their previous game. The South Africans duo of AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock performed well with the bat in the previous game. So that’s a definite plus for the hosts.
Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli hasn’t been among the runs, and the team would want him to be at his best. Brendon McCullum and Sarfaraz Khan were out for ducks in the last game. That’s something they would be wary of. In the bowling, Umesh Yadav was sensational, and Washington Sundar also used his skills well. It’s now time for Yuzvendra Chahal to rise to the challenge.
Dream XI for Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals: Virat Kohli (C), Yuzvendra Chahal, Quinton de Kock (W), AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Brendon McCullum, Mandeep Singh, Tim Southee, Manan Vohra, Washington Sundar, Umesh Yadav
Rajasthan Royals got away lucky in their last game, as rain helped them against Delhi Daredevils. Royals were defending 71 in six overs, and managed to keep the batting side down to 60 thanks to a decent bowling performance.
Royals skipper Ajinkya Rahane batted well against Delhi making 40, but he needs to pick up speed. Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler seem to be in good form. Royals’ bowlers haven’t been tested as such. So that would be something worth watching.
