IPL 2020 Match 33- Rajasthan vs. Bangalore Predictions, Fantasy picks, and Probable XI
Rajasthan Royal's face-off against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 33rd match of IPL 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
The last time these two teams met, RCB triumphed over RR by 8 wickets. This season has been rough for RR so far as they are at the 7th position in the points table while RCB are on the 3rd position.
Let's take a look at the Fantasy picks, predictions, and probable XI for this game which is crucial, especially for RR.
Fantasy League picks
Devdutt Padikkal is RCB's trusted opener. His score of 261 in 8 matches includes 3 half centuries and two 30+ scores. He has a strike rate of 127 and plays a huge role in giving the RCB innings an explosive start.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Virat Kohli RCB's fiery captain and a run-machine. Despite starting slow this season, he has caught on and amassed 304 runs in 8 matches at a strike rate of 126. Jos Buttler, Rajasthan Royals' keeper-batsman has a strike of 158. With that strike, he is a good scoring option for RR down the batting order.
Surprisingly, Jofra Archer has a massive strike rate of 202. His variations in bowling can tear through a top-class batting attack with ease and that strike rate is evident of the fact that he is capable of hitting the ball out of the stadium.
Steve Smith started big but the flame seems to have died out and he has ended up with streak of underwhelming performances.
Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Tewatia will be the bowlers to watch out for. Anyways this season, it's the bowlers are turning the games around.
