IPL 2018 | MATCH 53 | RR vs RCB | FANFIGHT | FANTASY CRICKET PREVIEW

RR vs RCB: 3 wins in their last 3 IPL games. RCB out of nowhere have come up with stunning displays and now give themselves a massive chance of making it to the playoffs. They’re currently placed 6th on the table with 12 points. A win at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium will push them to number 3. At least for a day. All RCB have to do is win this fixture. RCBs run-rate is an impressive 0.264 and if the other results work in their favour i) KKR lose their fixture against SRH, the Royals will qualify handsomely at number 3. ii) If MI win they’ll jump to the number 3 spot. All these conjectures will work well if KKR come out second best at Hyderabad. RR vs RCB is a battle for a place in the top 4.

VENUE: THE SAWAI MANSINGH STADIUM, JAIPUR

PITCH CONDITIONS

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium by far has been the toughest ground as far as run scoring is concerned. The highest score on this ground this season was registered in the previous game as Rajasthan chased down 177. The size of the ground also limits boundary scoring. Six hitting from ball isn’t easy, as players need to churn strike first, get accustomed to the conditions and then go berserk. The chasing and defending equation after 6 games in even now at 3. Win the toss and bowl first at this venue.

TEAM NEWS

Rajasthan struggled in their previous game against Kolkata Knight Riders. Buttler and Tripathi scored 10 boundaries in 10 deliveries. A record unprecedented. Stuart Binny hasn’t contributed much and his place in the squad is doubtful. Mahipal Lomror with his left-arm orthodox will add more variety.

Also, Stokes and Buttler have travelled back to England for the test series against Pakistan. RR will need to find two extremely effective replacements if they fancy a qualification spot. D’Arcy Short and Heinrich¬†Klaasen are the likely replacements for the two deported Englishmen.

RCB have drawn 6 points in their last 3 games. Moeen Ali didn’t make the cut for the test series and that’ll be a massive boost for the men in red.

BUDGET PICKS

Ish Sodhi has been sensational in the games he’s played. He’s played 4, picked 4 wickets and has conceded only 5.93 runs per over. Hitting against the turn will be tough ask and also at the SMS, because the boundaries are bigger, he’s likely to trouble the batters. RR will need Sodhi to pick RCBs important batters.

Mohammad Siraj has been a fine inclusion this season. In the 10 games he’s played Siraj has picked 10 wickets. He’s conceded 9.02 runs per over. That, because he’s bowled the most crucial overs of the game. Against SRH, Siraj had to defend 20 off the last over and he that to a nicety. Siraj is definitely a smart pick and is valued at 7.7 credits on FanFight.

Moeen Ali has all the potential to dismantle the best bowling attacks. His nonchalant batting style has worked brilliantly for England and if he fires against RR, RCB are certain to reach a massive total. his off-spinners aren’t the worst either. Ali struck at 191.17 in his last innings. Adding him to your FanFight squad might work out to a remarkable exactness. On FanFight, he’s valued at 7.7
