IPL 2022: Predicted XIs For RCB vs RR

IPL 2022: Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals, two teams in the upper half of the points table with 10 points each, will take on each other on Tuesday evening in Pune. A win for the Royals will take them to the top above Gujarat Titans courtesy of their better NRR, while should RCB gain the two points, they will reach the second place.

Sanju Samson’s side is coming off a tight 15-run victory over Delhi Capitals. Jos Buttler has continued his dream form and plundered his third century of the season.

On the other hand, Faf du Plessis’ team is coming off a forgettable outing against Sunrisers Hyderabad when they were bowled out for 68 runs, which SRH chased down in just 8 overs.

Venue: Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune

Both spinners and pacers have got plenty of assistance in Pune, especially because of the lesser amount of dew compared to Mumbai. The tracks have also been decent for batting, although hitting big shots can sometimes be challenging due to the size of the boundaries that bring the bowlers into play. With both teams having some of the best batters in the league and an ordinary pace attack, expect a good scoring game.

Rajasthan Royals

Obed McCoy survived a late scare from Rovman Powell when he was hit for three sixes in the first three balls of the last over while defending 36 runs. Although he bounced back, things could have been horrible had the no-ball been called. McCoy leaked 52 runs in his three overs, and could be replaced by Navdeep Sain or Kuldeep Sen.

RR predicted XI: Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Karun Nair, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Obed McCoy/Navdeep Saini/Kuldeep Sen, Yuzvendra Chahal

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Opener Anuj Rawat has managed just 16 runs in his last four innings and is expected to be dropped. Mahipal Lomror, who was in form in the domestic season earlier and was impressive last season for RR, is likely to replace Anuj. The struggling Virat Kohli may also return to open the innings.

RCB predicted XI: Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Mahipal Lomror, Glenn Maxwell, Suyash Prabhudessai, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj
