RR vs RCB Dream11 team prediction: After Sunrisers Hyderabad played spoilsport against Rajasthan Royals on Monday, things have become really challenging for the Sanju Samson-led side to advance into the IPL 2021 Playoffs. Sitting sixth in the table with eight points in ten encounters, the Royals need to win a minimum of three matches out of the remaining four to advance into the next round. Any more slip-ups can dent their qualification chances even more and their biggest assignment comes tomorrow against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
When both teams met in Mumbai in the first phase, Royal Challengers Bangalore registered a thumping 10 wickets victory over Rajasthan Royals. Put into bat, Rajasthan Royals posted 177/9 on the back of Shivam Dube’s 46 off 32 and Rahul Tewatia 40 off 23 balls. In reply, Virat Kohli (72*) and Devdutt Padikkal (101*) chased down the target in 16.3 overs.
Interestingly, the Virat Kohli-led side is coming after a dominating win over Mumbai Indians and will be looking to carry forward the momentum. After facing back-to-back defeats at the start of the UAE leg, Royal Challengers Bangalore finally looked in the groove as they defeated the reigning champions by 54 runs, completing a double over the 5-time champions for the first time.
With Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Glenn Maxwell looking in fine form, the challenge for Rajasthan Royals grows even bigger. The Royals are already struggling without the services of Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Jofra Archer, and facing such formidable opposition will require them to punch above their weight.
Both teams will meet at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai on Wednesday. The match will kick off at 07:30 PM IST and will be live streamed on the Disney+Hotstar app in India.
