With a Playoff berth at stake, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be taking on table-toppers Gujarat Titans (GT) in their last league game of the season. The Faf du Plessis-led RCB are under the pump after losing to Punjab Kings in their last league game. Meanwhile, Gujarat have been as clinical as any team this season. They have won ten out of thirteen games played. Also, in their last meeting with RCB, the Hardik Pandya-led side emerged victorious. So, this makes up for an interesting clash between RCB and GT.
There have been some consistent performers from both teams. For GT, Wriddhiman Saha played a match-winning knock against CSK. Shubman Gill has also shown good form with the bat recently. Captain Hardik Pandya has contributed with either bat or ball. In bowling, Mohammed Shami has consistently delivered for the team, especially in the first six overs. Vice-captain Rashid Khan also looked in good touch in the last few games.
From Bangalore, captain Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell have been consistent performers. Rajat Patidar has also contributed in every game he has played so far. He also scored a half-century last time the two teams met. In bowling, Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga look in a good rhythm and thus can be included in the fantasy team.
