Royal Challengers Bangalore

RR has a batting order that bats with more intent and is vital in T20 cricket. This is a place where bowlers have traditionally found it difficult to take wickets and that could hurt RCB more. Chahal and Ashwin should be more effective with the big borders and Trent Boult's matchup against RCB's top order is also very good to watch out for.

RR didn't show their best cricket in Qualifying 1 but still managed to put up an impressive fight. Jos Buttler bounced back from a slow start only to explode during the last few overs. Sanju Samson played an absolute high flyer and Devdutt Padikkal looked in fine form again but lacked fluidity in the innings.

The lack of depth has so far been compensated by Jos Buttler's tremendous batting form, but there's no doubt that the team are vulnerable to a few early wickets.

One of the big things that has spoken for RR so far has been their brilliant bowling attack. You can count on Trent Boult to give you early wickets and Yuzvendra Chahal to be very hard to beat in the second half of the bowling stint. Both had mediocre games while Prasidh Krishna and R. Ashwin had bad ones.

Obed McCoy seems to fit well into this lineup.

It will be interesting to see if RR is tempted to bring in someone like Jimmy Neesham or even Karun Nair to bolster shot depth while sacrificing some bowling quality.

RCB were a bit lucky to have won the eliminator against LSG as many things went their way but there is no doubt that Rajat Patidar played a superlative. He hit the ball brilliantly from the moment he came in, taking all the pressure off the other batsmen.

It's also a huge benefit to have someone like Dinesh Karthik producing AB de Villiers basically like Knocks.

Caring for RCB will be his top priority. There's no doubt about it, but the longer Virat Kohli spends in the middle, the less RCB's chances of reaching a large sum. He again scored just 25 of 24 as he opened batting and looked out of shape.

Faf du Plessis is a big match player and we think he is a good match for RR Bowling Attack as well. He could be a player to bet on in this match. Rajat Patidar, Mahipal Lomror and Dinesh Karthik form a strong middle class with Shahbaz Ahmed and Wanindu Hasaranga all able to contribute as well if required.

We don't think there is a big difference in batting power between the two teams and it will depend on the performances of the day.

RCB's bowling attack is quite extraordinary. Wanindu Hasaranga has more wickets in the mid-overs than anyone else in IPL 2022. He's also very frugal in general. Then add Harshal Patel in the Death-Overs where everyone seems to know what they're about to throw but still aren't able to hit it!

Josh Hazelwood, Mohammad Siraj and Shahbaz Ahmed round out a very strong bowling lineup.

RCB would probably prefer to hit without pressure, get a big score and then ask their bowlers to do the hard work of defending all over again.

Prediction

We're betting on the Rajasthan Royals to win this game. We believe they have the firepower and intent that RCB camp lacks. The big risk to consider here is lack of depth, but the tremendous form from Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson should be enough to make up for that. We also believe that the RCB bowling lineup (especially Harshal Patel) at Narendra Modi Stadium, where the ball hits the racquet well, will not be as effective.

Our bet is on the Lucknow Rajasthan Royals to win the game by 2.07.
