Team News And Tournament So Far 

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals' bowling attack, headed by Prasidh Krishna, who rattled the top order, including removing skipper Kane Williamson for 2 runs, limited Sunrisers Hyderabad to just 149-7 despite Aiden Markram's unbeaten 57, in their first match. Yuzvendra Chahal claimed three wickets to achieve 250 wickets in T20 matches, while Trent Bowler took two. 

Sanju Samson, RR’s brilliant keeper-batsman, was named the Man Of The Match after smashing three fours and five sixes in his 27-ball blitz, hitting 55 and putting on a crucial 73-run partnership with Devdutt Padikkal, who scored 41. Shimron Hetmyer of the West Indies struck 32 off 13 balls and blasted two sixes to push the Royals' total above 200 after being put in to bat first. The Royals ended up with an emphatic 61 run victory.

Rajasthan Royals would have to select between Kiwi James Neesham and Australian Nathan Coulter-Nile against MI, with Jos Buttler, Trent Boult, and Shimron Hetmyer filling the remaining three positions, but they may field an unchanged XI after defeating SRH and MI.

In case of an injury, Rajasthan may also field one out of Navdeep Saini, KC Cariappa, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Karun Nair, Rassie van der Dussen, Daryl Mitchell, or Obed McCoy. 

Buttler's form is impeccable at the moment, and he looks set to take them to another victory here. 

Rajasthan Royals Probable XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler (wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, James Neesham, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna.

Royal Challengers Bangalore 

RCB started the season poory despite posting a mammoth score against Punjab Kings. However, their bowling was torn apart by the PBKS batsmen and they chased down 206. In the second game, RCB almost suffered a humiliating defeat as they struggled to chase down a very low score set up by KKR, but eventually managed to record their first win of the season. 

Glenn Maxwell, who recently married, will miss at least the first two games of Royal Challengers Bangalore, while his Australian counterparts Josh Hazlewood and Jason Behrendorff will miss the first three games since the Australian players would not be available until April 6.

Mohammed Siraj (2/59 in 4 overs) and Akash Deep (1/38 in 3 overs) both cost too much. While Mohammed Siraj will face RR for the first time, Akash Deep may be replaced by Siddharth Kaul.

They lost their last match but had won 2 in a row before that and are generally looking good enough to finish in the top 4 this season. 

RCB Probable XI - Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Anuj Rawat, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, David Willey, Harshal Patel, Siddharth Kaul, Mohammed Siraj 

Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction

To Win The Match

Both these teams have equal odds of 1.90 to win this match, a testament to their competitiveness and solid performances in the league so far. 

Top Team Batsman

RCB opener FAF Du Plessis is unsurprisingly the favourite to be their top batsman in this match with odds of 2.87. He played a brilliant innings in the first game but it went in vain eventually. His opening partner Virat Kohli has odds of 3.00. Dinesh Karthik has odds of 6.00 to be the top batsman.

Jos Buttler is on course to be the highest scorer ever in one IPL season as he has smacked an unprecedented 3 centuries already. He is the favourite to be the top scorer with odds of 2.62 ! Sanju Samson was on fire in the first game and is again one of the favourites to be RR’s top scorer in this match, as he is widely considered to be their most consistent batsman and has odds of 3.75. 

Highest Opening Partnership 

RR have a strong opening pair as Devdutt Padikkal now opens with Buttler, and hence they have odds of 1.72 to have the highest opening partnership. 

Top Team Bowler

Last year’s top wicket-taker Harshal Patel is RCB’s favourite to be the top team bowler at 3.50, followed by Hasaranga also at 3.50.

Trent Boult is unsurprisingly one of the favourites to be the top bowler for the Royals at 3.75, while the prolific Purple Cap holder Yuzu Chahal is the favourite at 3.25. 

Total Runs In The Match

Odds of there being more than 343.5 runs in this match are 1.91. This is an interesting bet as both these teams have a deep batting line up.    

Individual Player Betting

  • Du Plessis to score more than 29.5 runs has odds of 1.81, and it’s a solid bet as he is one of the best batsmen in the league and also in form. Jos Buttler to score more than 28.5 runs also has odds of 1.83, which is also a tempting bet as he has been on fire for the Royals and just recently scored his 3rd century of the season.
  • RCB to hit the most sixes has odds of 2.05, which can be tempting with Du Plessis, Kohli, Karthik and Rutherford all capable of clearing the boundary. RR to hit the most sixes also have odds of 1.90, as Buttler, Padikkal, Samson and Hetmyer all are known for their big hits.
  • Harshal Patel to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.75 which is a given with his experience and form, while Boult to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.50.
