RCB vs RR: RCB is all set to face RR today in the 16th clash of IPL 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. RCB has made a spectacular start to their campaign by winning all three games they have played so far. Whereas RR has won only one match out of three they have played.
RCB’s new inclusions are proving fruitful for them with Maxwell delivering with the bat in every match he has played. On the other hand newbie, Harshal Patel has done stupendous bowling in the death overs & played a crucial role in RCB’s every win. RCB’s bowling attack looks perfect with the likes of Daniel Sams. In their previous clash against KKR, RCB put up a stunning total of 201/4 on Chepauk’s pitch & defeated KKR by 38 runs.
Riding on the back of three glorious victories RCB will look forward to extending their winning run today at the Wankhede Stadium against RR. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals will come into today’s match after facing a loss in their previous clash against CSK. Setbacks for RR continue as Liam Livingstone pulled out of the IPL 2021 due to bubble fatigue. Whereas Ben Stokes has to leave the league in the middle after suffering from a broken finger in the RR’s season-opening clash.
Rajasthan Royals are yet to announce the replacements for the duo & could introduce players who can strengthen the weak areas in their team. In their previous clash, RR succumbed to 143 runs while chasing a huge target of 189 runs set by CSK. Except for Jos Buttler, none of the batsmen was comfortable at the crease.
Adding to RR’s failure, even Captain Sanju Samson departed early. In today’s match, Samson will try to settle down on the crease before hitting some aggressive shots.
RR’s bowling department is quite impressive with pacer Chetan Sakariya continuing to deliver with the ball in every clash. However, RR needs to work on their death bowling when they are facing strong batting lineups just like RCB.
Looking at previous records, RCB could comfortably beat RR, so RR would ensure that history doesn’t repeat in today’s clash. All those Cricket Lovers can expect a nail-biting contest today at the Wankhede Stadium between RR & RCB.
