Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) are set to go head to head with Rajasthan Royals(RR) in the 39th match of the Indian Premier League(IPL) on Tuesday, April 26 at the MCA Stadium in Pune.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
They have currently won 5 out of 8 matches and are placed in the fourth position in the points table. RCB faced a humiliating defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) in the previous match as they managed to score only 68 runs. The Faf du Plessis side had an off game completely against SRH in their previous game after being bundled out for a pretty low score after the top order collapsed miserably. Virat Kohli’s form has dipped as he endured consecutive golden ducks in the last two matches and RCB will be expecting him to bounce back in the clash.
The Royals have been in great form in the tournament and have been able to win 5 out of 7 matches. They are currently placed in the third position in the points tally, however, a win in this match might help them climb to the top position. The Royals have won their last 2 matches and would be looking to make it three in a row. Royals’ ace spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been in terrific form who recently grabbed a hat-trick performance. He is the purple cap holder with a wickets tally of 18.
WAGING ODDS: RCB (1.90) Vs RR(1.90)
There are no favorites or underdogs in the contest and odds are even at 1.90, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹190
A used surface was used in the last game and it had a nice covering of grass. The pitch is expected to remain balanced. The recent performances of Royals have certainly been impressive and they are likely to emerge victorious in the outing.
Prediction: RR to win the match.
