The Dubai International Stadium picked out as the venue for this potentially nerve-cracking clash, brace yourselves for a rollercoaster ride come kickoff. As these two sides are in strong form at the moment, this sets us up for a frantic, action-packed game here.
However, they seem rejuvenated in recent games, defeating fellow strugglers SRH before narrowly losing out to table-toppers Delhi Capitals on the last matchday. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler were in magnificent form on the day, causing DC all sorts of troubles.
Steve Smith will be counting on these two to come up with the goods, once again, in this upcoming contest. When it comes to bowling, Jofra Archer has been the stand-out performer for RR, showing consistency in all his games, but has suffered from a lack of support from fellow bowlers.
They began the game very poorly as openers Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch failed to partner properly – a trend that has gone on for the last couple of games. Skipper Kohli led by example, delivering a sensational display versus KXIP, and will be expected to hit top gear once again this Saturday.
ADB will likely return to No.4 after failing to impress in his improvised position last time out. Morris and Navdeep Saini’s wonderful hitting abilities haven’t gone unnoticed – these two proving RCB’s unsung heroes. Yuzvendra Chahal has also been largely impressive recently.
RCB provide another difficult challenge for Steve Smith’s men this weekend. Their batting unit are currently in tip-top form – this factor likely to see RCB edge this one out.
