Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on mighty Gujarat Titans on Thursday evening at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. While Titans have qualified for the playoffs and are coming after registering a comprehensive victory against Chennai Super Kings, Bangalore needs to win this game with a huge margin with hopes of others results to turn in their favour.
Bangalore is currently placed at the fifth spot in the points table with 14 points after 13 games. Punjab Kings thrashed Bangalore in their last fixture and defeated the latter by 54 runs. Bowling was a major concern for the side, as Josh Hazlewood, Siraj, and Shahbaz Ahmed had an economy above 10. Punjab posted 209 as the target, and in response, Bangalore bundled out for 155/9 in 20 overs.
Glenn Maxwell’s 35 was the highest score during the run chase as none of the Bangalore batters could deliver an impressive performance in the second innings. Inconsistency from Bangalore bowlers and batters has cost them crucial games, and they will have an uphill task to win a game against Gujarat Titans.
Hardik Pandya-led side became the first team to qualify for the playoffs after staying consistent with their performance in the tournament. They have won ten out of 13 games in the league. While Bangalore will be desperate to register a win with a huge margin in the upcoming fixture, Gujarat Titans might make a few changes in the squad in order to test their bench strength.
