Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rajasthan Royals – Match Preview

The Royal Challengers have lost all of their last three completed head-to-head meetings with the Rajasthan Royals.

They look a far more formidable unit this year, though, and it’s not all that surprising that the best Indian betting websites have Bangalore favoured for this match.

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

When: Saturday, 3 October 2020

Start time: 15:30 IST (10:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Delhi captain Shreyas Iyer recently admitted to not really knowing how to approach batting on this Abu Dhabi pitch. Teams generally tend to bat second here and not bowl with a damp ball in dewy conditions in the evening.

Weather conditions: You won’t see this often, but there is a small chance of rain predicted in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. If there are showers, they probably won’t be enough to shorten the match. This will be the first full day match of the IPL 2020, so it’ll be warmer than the evening games.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rajasthan Royals – Team News

The Royal Challengers go into this match on the back of a victory, so won’t likely make many changes to their XI, if any.

It’ll be interesting to see if they opt for two leg-spinners again in Yuzvendra Chahal and Adam Zampa, or return fast bowler Umesh Yadav to the team.

All-rounder Chris Morris hasn’t played for them this season yet. His match fitness remains in the balance.

The Royals are still without Ben Stokes – and are probably starting to think about not having him for the whole tournament.

Fellow Englishman Tom Curran, though, has shown himself to be a useful all-rounder with Stokes not around.

Perhaps Rajasthan will opt for extra pace this time – and bring Varun Aaron into the team for the first time this IPL.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rajasthan Royals – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are more experts tips based on the best odds offered by Indian betting websites. This is sure to be a cracking match – and we are looking forward to seeing how these match predictions turn out.

Select Saini to Be the Top Bowler for RCB

Navdeep Saini has done well in regulation play and the recent super over. Virat Kohli has praised the fast bowler a lot – and it’s easy to see why.

For an outright fast bowler, he’s not really getting smacked all over the ground in flat conditions. Saini is a good pick with 10CRIC to be the top bowler for RCB at 5.0.

Bet on Finch, Kohli and De Villiers to Hit Sixes

Bangalore have arguably the most star-studded batting order in the IPL 2020, as has been the case in previous editions.

Kohli isn’t in the greatest touch, but Finch is starting to come off nicely at the top and AB de Villiers is in his usual best form.

22Bet have the three priced at t 3.74 to hit at least one six each. This is a good value bet and well worth placing.

Back Uthappa to Beat Sansom in Top Rajasthan Batsman Market

Robin Uthappa hasn’t reached double figures once this IPL. But he remains among the top 10 run-scorers in the history of the competition and should hit form at some stage.

The scene is set for him to do so here, especially against a franchise he used to play for. Rather than go for the predictable Sanju Samson to be the top batsman for Rajasthan, opt for Uthappa at longer odds of 5.5 in the same market with Funbet.
