It could be make-or-break for Bangalore who have struggled to go beyond the top-three batters. Rajasthan have the slight edge in the opening exchanges and it could be their openers doing the job for them. I am backing Rajasthan Royals to post the highest opening partnership.

  • Rajasthan Royals have scored the highest powerplay runs in 9 of their last 12 matches (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have posted the highest opening partnership of the match in 9 of their last 12 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


There have been 26 IPL games between Rajasthan and Bangalore that ended in results. Of these, there have been 14 wins for Bangalore and 12 wins for Rajasthan.

Earlier in the season when these sides met in Bangalore, it was the Royal Challengers who won by seven runs. Glenn Maxwell’s 77 and Harshal Patel’s three-wickets trumped Rajasthan.

Rajasthan Royals Form


Rajasthan are 4th in the points table ahead of Saturday’s matches with 12 points. They could go above Mumbai into the third spot with a win and they are coming off a thrilling nine-wicket win over Kolkata.

It is the youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal (575) who’s leading Rajasthan’s batting along with Jos Buttler (392). With the ball, it is the exciting Yuzvendra Chahal (21) landing wickets regularly.

Rajasthan are due a big score from Buttler, who has lost a bit of steam in the recent matches.

Rajasthan Royals Team News


The Royals have the full team to choose from with Trent Boult returning from injury in the last game.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form


Royal Challengers Bangalore are 6th in the table ahead of Saturday matches with 10 points from 11 matches. They are coming off three losses in four matches as their playoff chances have gone bleak.

It is the duo of Faf dul Plessis (576 runs) and Virat Kohli (420) who have been doing the shift for Bangalore with the bat. In the bowling front, Mohammed Siraj (15) and Harshal Patel (12) have been leading the show.

The Royal Challengers can’t lose another match and risk their qualification, which means they will have to find a way past their recent muddle.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News


The Royal Challengers could look at using Michael Bracewell if they feel his spin bowling will give them an extra edge. Otherwise, they don’t have any fitness issues in the squad.

Verdict

Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are coming off contrasting results and form. While the Royals seem to be riding on the form of youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal, the Royal Challengers are struggling to find consistency in their ranks. I am backing the Royals to grab the opportunity and post the highest opening partnership of the match. Keep a small wager on Yashasvi ending up as Rajasthan’s top-scorer.
