Royal Challengers Bangalore will go head-to-head against Gujarat Titans at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru in the match 70 of the Indian Premier League 2023. The hosts RCB won their last game against the arch-nemesis SRH away to get a step closer to the IPL playoffs. Meanwhile, GT also smashed SRH at home in their previous outing to secure the IPL playoffs qualification. At the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, the Royal Challengers have to defeat the Titans to ensure that they finish the league stage of the tournament inside the top 4.

Pitch Report

The pitches at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium have generally been very good for batting with fast outfield and short boundaries. The average first innings score at this venue is 171 in IPL history, while for this season, it has gone up to 195. Hence, the expectation of a big total in the range of 180-190 for the upcoming RCB vs GT fixture is definitely not out of the question.

Team Analysis

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Virat Kohli scored an incredible hundred in a must win run chase for Royal Challengers Bangalore to get them over the line against Sunrisers Hyderabad. His captain Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell are in ominous form with the bat, which has ensured that RCB are a win away from potentially securing the playoffs spot in the IPL. In the bowling side of things, Mohammed Siraj has returned to form for the Royal Challengers in their last couple of outings, while the wickets from Michael Bracewell has been a welcome change for the team management too.

Gujarat Titans

Shubman Gill got to his first-ever IPL century in the previous outing for Gujarat Titans against Sunrisers Hyderabad, which helped the side put up a match winning total on the board. The return of Sai Sudharshan amongst the runs in the middle order for GT, just before their Qualifier 1 clash next week, is a positive sign of things to come. The bowling department of the Titans has been firing on all cylinders with their experienced players like Mohammed Shami, Mohit Sharma, and Rashid Khan consistently featuring amongst the wickets.
