IPL 2018 | MATCH 11 | RCB vs RR | FANFIGHT PREVIEW

The Royal battle for a mere 2 points is all set to kick-off at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. AB De Villiers is back. Now, that’s one player you’d not want to peak at this time of the tournament. However, RCB would like to make the most of this and put up a clinical show before their home crowd. Rajasthan are currently 7th on the table, but, this again is just the start. They’ve got a cluster of world beaters and it’ll only take a little time for the players to hit the required form. Rahane’s ideas will be tested. The big question here, Can he think as fluently as he bats? RCB vs RR, the 11th game of the Indian Premier League is bound to be a cracker.

PITCH CONDITIONS

The pitch here was relaid in the year 2015 and since then has been a pace friendly wicket. However, the size of the ground is a huge plus. A mishit can carry all the way. Win the toss and bowl first. Anything below 180 is easily chasable on this ground.

TEAM NEWS

For RCB, the same eleven that beat KXIP is expected to feature.

RR also are likely to walk in with the same eleven. K Gowtham might get replaced by Stuart Binny. That’s the only possible change if the think tank’s thinking of one.

PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR

AB De VILLIERS 

Strike-rate in the IPL: 148.48, Balls per-boundary: 4.3 balls/boundary, Average: 38.43, Runs: 3574. Played an explosive knock in the last game. Will be the player to watch out for.

VIRAT KOHLI

Runs: 4470(3rd highest), Average: 37.25, Hundreds: 4, Strike-rate: 129.49, BPB: 6.2. Easily the best batsman in the world. Hasn’t reached his optimum level this IPL. This could just be the game.

D’ARCY SHORT

Strike-rate: 150.61, Average: 39.04, Highest: 122*, BPB: 4.5. Scored 6 & 4 in his last two innings. A big knock is certainly on the cards. Can it be his day today?

UMESH YADAV

Picked up the man of the match award in his previous outing vs KXIP. Dismissed 3 batsmen in one over. His ability to bowl 140+ clicks without dropping a sweat makes his a strong contender. Umesh is a genuine wicket-taker and his seaming deliveries can easily trouble the best.

Wickets: 96, Strike-rate: 20.64, 4’s: 2, Economy rate: 8.34.

WHO WILL WIN RCB vs RR?

RCB got off the mark in style in their previous game and RR were lucky to draw a positive two in a rain-curtailed game. At home, RCB have an inferior record against Rajasthan but the home team will walk in with a lot of confidence after their first victory. Also, the likes of AB De Villiers has hit form and Kohli can smash whenever he wants. At the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, for the 10th game, RCB vs RR, the favourites are the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
