IPL 2021: Match 43 - RR vs RCB: Preview, probable XIs, match prediction, live streaming, weather forecast, and pitch report

IPL 2021, Match 43, RR vs RCB: The IPL 2021 has become more interesting as the tournament approaches the end of its league stages. Every win & loss matters for the teams & the same will be the scenario in today’s clash. Rajasthan Royals will come into head-to-head competition with RCB in the 43rd match of the IPL 2021 tonight at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

This is a must-win match for Rajasthan Royals as they are marching into today’s clash on the back of successive defeats to DC & SRH in their previous clashes. Rajasthan Royals batters struggled to deliver with Sanju Samson being the lone fighter for the Royals. RR’s captain has stepped up in the dire situation when the team required him the most & ended with blistering scores of 70* & 82 in their last two matches. However, still RR lost their previous two matches, courtesy of inconsistency in their batting line-up.

The form of RR’s bowlers is also a big problem for the team. RR’s most expensive buy, Chris Morris has been unable to control his line & length & needs to address it before it’s too late for them. Meanwhile, only Chetan Sakariya and Mustafizur Rahman are the two bowlers who’ve bowled consistently for RR. The Royals will hope that their overseas players deliver in this crunch situation & help them to grab a place in the top four of the IPL points table 2021.

On the other hand, RCB is coming in today’s clash after relishing a morale-boosting 54 run win over the MI. Glen Maxwell’s all-around performance along with Virat’s half-century & a three-wicket haul by Harshal Patel helped them to win their clash against MI & consolidate their place in the top half of the table.

In RCB’s previous clash against MI, they were on the back foot with Rohit Sharma looking threatening for RCB bowlers. However, Yuzvendra Chahal’s spectacular bowling spell along with Maxwell’s restricted bowling attack helped to dismantle MI’s fragile middle order. They gradually succumbed to the scoreboard pressure & were bowled for 11 runs. RCB will look ahead to give their best against RR & fix their spot in the playoffs by clinching today’s clash while RR will put their every strength to emerge victorious in today’s clash & keep their playoffs hopes alive.
