Match Preview

RR had a peculiar beginning to their IPL campaign. After losing their opener due to a batting fail, the second match was handed over to them by rain and DLS method.

With RCB’s Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, and Washington Sundar RR can’t only depend on Luck. Their batting line-up will have to walk some extra miles.

Although Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli hasn’t shrugged their slumber as of yet; AB de Villiers did come to his own in Friday’s match. This could be dangerous for the guest team.

Captain Ajinkya Rahane can take a cue from Ravichandran Ashwin n how well to rotate his bowlers, and hope for them to make life difficult for RCB’s top-order.
