RR vs RCB Pitch Report & Weather Conditions
Before this match, three matches have been played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai in IPL 2022. In all these matches the pitch has provided more benefit to the team which was asked to chase the target.
Although the pitch is good for batting, but the last match played here between PBKS vs KKR was a low scoring one where PBKS put a target of 137 batting first. KKR had to fight hard to achieve that target, so it gave a sign that pitch will have great amount of assistance for the bowlers also and batting will not be easy at all here.
For any team who wins the toss would like to bowl first and restrict the first batting team to a total around 150-160
RR Team Preview
Rajasthan Royals is the most successful team of IPL 2022 as they have won two out of two games and are sitting at the top of table with 4 points. They would like to continue their winning streak and make it 3 out of 3 by beating RCB in this upcoming match.
In their last match they beat Mumbai Indian by 23 runs and became the first team to register a win by batting first. The main reason why RR have done so well in the tournament for now is that there batsmen and bowlers are performing collectively.
Jos Buttler blasted a great century against MI in just 68 balls. His contribution was also assisted by Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer in the middle overs. The whole credit goes to these three batsmen of RR and they would look to dominate again in this upcoming match against RCB.
In the two matches played so far by Rajasthan Royals, they have beaten their opposition teams by huge margins and the another reason for this success is the super bowling of their bowlers like Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal
RCB Team Preview
Royal Challengers Bangalore lost their first of IPL 2022 to PBKS by 5 wickets but they came back strongly in the second game by beating KKR.
Bowling was a main concern for RCB in IPL 2022 but their bowlers performed exceptional well in the match against KKR and stopped them at total of just 128 runs.
RCB bowlers didn’t allow KKR batsmen to free their hands from the start of the innings. Wanindu Hasaranga claimed 4 wickets and kept the KKR batsmen very quiet. If he balls well in this match also then RR batsmen will surely not stand a chance.
Akash Deep also took the opportunity by taking 3 wickets and would like to more success in this match against RR also.
After doing great with the bat in first match, Faf du Plessis did net get a chance to show his batting power much in the match against KKR. But he along with Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli and David Willey have to go all the way in this match against RR to provide stability to the team with batting.
