Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Rajasthan Royals in Tuesday’s exclusive face-off scheduled to be played at MCA Stadium in Pune. The Faf du Plessis-led side had a completely off game last time around against Sunrisers Hyderabad where they surrendered the inning for a double-digit total of 68 runs. Bowlers having no major say in the game got hold of just one wicket before SRH geared-up for a thumping win in just 8 overs game-play.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will hunt for a comeback win and find answers to last game’s batting blues. The form of Virat Kohli is a huge worry for RCB camp but seeing his stature and potential expect him to stick into the playing XI. Anuj Rawat has been inconsistent at the top of the order and the Red-Army might introduce Mahipal Lamror in the playing XI while pushing Virat Kohli up in the batting order.      


Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals will walk into Tuesday’s gripping contest, on back of two close encounters triumph. Jos Butler has been a complete masterclass at the top of the batting order for the pink army. Rajasthan is presently seated at third spot in the points-table with five wins from seven fixtures and looking confortable for the final playoff tally. In their preceding high-scorer setting against Delhi, Jos Butler shoots for third ton this IPL season that guided Royals to 222 runs massive total and take away 15 runs victory.

The Royals’ will aim to apprehend a winning hat-trick and abide by the gained momentum. The Pink Army’s bowling seemed to have leaked runs in last two fixtures and bowling disciplined length will be the key to success. Rajasthan Royals might rope-in either Navdeep Saini or Kuldeep Sen to replace Obed McCoy in the bowling attack.

Topbets Prediction

Without any doubt, Royal Challengers Bangalore is expected to exhibit much improved performance in Tuesday’s game. However, they are facing a charged-up Rajasthan Royals with two of their players in their red-hot form in IPL 2022. With Jos Butler raining fire with bat and Yuzvendra Chahal is an impeccable force with his mystery spin. Another difficult game for RCB therefore back Rajasthan to record their hat-trick of wins.
