In the second phase of IPL 2021, Rajasthan Royals will face Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday. It will be played between the two teams at the Dubai International Stadium. This match played between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be the 43rd match of the 14th season of the league. Bangalore’s team is currently sitting at number three in the points table. At the same time, the team of Rajasthan is at number seven. Both the teams have played 10-10 matches so far, but Bangalore has got 6 wins and Rajasthan 4 wins.
Rajasthan had lost their previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad while Bangalore defeated Mumbai Indians. Bangalore would now like to maintain the winning streak, while Rajasthan would like to return to the winning track. In such a situation, this match of both the teams is going to be very important. In this important match, both the teams would like to go with their best playing XI. Let’s take a look at the playing XI of both the teams.
Rajasthan can make big changes in their playing XI in this match. In the last match of Rajasthan, spinners were dominant and in today’s match, Rajasthan team can play Mayank Markande in place of Riyan Parag. Apart from this, there may also be a return of fast bowler Karthik Tyagi, who has recovered from the injury. Shivam Dubey can also be included in the playing XI in place of Parag. Apart from him, fast bowler Jaydev Unadkat can also return to the team. The batsmen of Rajasthan have also disappointed so far, so there can be a change in the team’s batting as well. Captain Sanju Samson and Liam Livingstone will be hoping for a big innings for the team.
RCB had lost two consecutive matches in the second phase. In the first match, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated by 9 wickets while in the second match, Chennai Super Kings defeated by 6 wickets. After that, the team returned to the winning track in the third match, defeating Mumbai Indians by 54 runs. The team is back on the winning track and it is unlikely that they will make any changes in their winning combination. The team is also at number three in the table and its position is strong.
