It's time for the Royals derby in the Indian Premier League. After having a nightmare-like an outing against Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Rajasthan Royals on April 26 at the MCA Stadium in Pune. In their previous match, Bangalore got bundled out at 68 against Hyderabad and suffered an embarrassing defeat.
Anuj Rawat's inconsistency and Kohli's poor form have been a couple of major concerns that the side would be hoping to find a solution to when facing the Rajasthan Royals. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals played a close encounter against Delhi Capitals in their last fixture, and bowlers leaking too many runs is something they will hope to work on. Buttler's masterclass at top-of-the-order has been incredible, with three centuries in the season.
Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson have also delivered impressive batting performances at the top order. Shimron Hetmyer's hard-hitting can pose a formidable challenge to Bangalore bowlers, which are studded with quality players like Josh Hazlewood, Md. Siraj, Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga. When both the teams locked horns last time, Bangalore emerged victorious on the back of scintillating knocks from Shahbaz Ahmed (45 off 26) and Dinesh Karthik (44 off 23).
In that match, Bangalore bowlers restricted Rajasthan at 169-3 in 20 overs, and some similar performance in the upcoming fixture will be expected from the Faf du Plessis side. The clash between two teams will bring some quality players against each other, and it will surely deliver an exciting thriller for cricket fans.
