Fantasy Cricket Tips For RCB vs RR: Table-toppers Rajasthan Royals will clash with the bottom-half side Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 5th, Tuesday, evening at the Wankhede Stadium for match 13 of IPL 2022.
Sanju Samson’s unit is high on confidence after claiming 2 wins in as many games. Following a 61-run one-sided drubbing of the Sunrisers Hyderabad, they defeated the 5-time champions, Mumbai Indians, by 23 runs on the back of Jos Buttler’s stunning century.
Faf du Plessis’ side is in the bottom half of the table with one win in two matches. They started the season with a loss to Punjab Kings when their bowlers failed in defending 205, but bounced back with a victory against Kolkata Knight Riders, though they got over the 129-run target only in the last over of the match.
Venue: Wankhede Stadium
Contrary to the expectations at the start of the tournament, batters have found it slightly difficult to get going at the Wankhede as both fast bowlers and spinners have got plenty of help from the pitch and conditions. But, all the three games so far at this venue have been won by won by the chasing team, so batting second has been the preferred option for captains, especially with dew making its presence felt later in the game.
Here we bring you the fantasy cricket tips for this exciting encounter:
RCB news and predicted XI:
For RCB, they will miss the services of star players Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood for one more game; the centrally contracted Australian players of all the teams will be available to play from April 6th.
They are expected to go with the same eleven that played against KKR.
RCB predicted XI: Faf du Plessis (c), Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, David Willey, Harshal Patel, Akash Deep, Mohammed Siraj
RR news and predicted XI:
Despite Jos Buttler’s thunderous century, RR couldn’t go past 200 against MI; their lower-order batting is the only area of concern. Though Navdeep Saini picked up a couple of wickets, he was their most expensive bowler on the night. James Neesham could be brought in the eleven for Saini to bolster the batting that includes three young Indian batters.
RR predicted XI: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, James Neesham, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
Fantasy cricket tips: New ball bowlers of both teams will get help from the conditions, so they are a must in your fantasy eleven while you can omit one opener each from both sides; this also means that both Buttler and du Plessis are not safe captaincy option for you, despite their good form.
RCB’s death bowling is a weak link, so Shimrom Hetmyer could be the X-factor in your fantasy eleven; the West Indian also takes one or two catches in every game as he fields at the important positions in the deep.
Based on the above fantasy cricket tips, here is the best XI for SRH-LSG on Dream XI:
Wicket-keeper: Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson
Batsman: Virat Kohli, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal
All-rounder: Shahbaz Ahmed
Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Harshal Patel, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj
