Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore would be overwhelming favourites when they take on Rajasthan Royals on Thursday at the Wankhede Stadium. Kohli and Co have not put a foot wrong this season and have been the team to beat. The Rajasthan franchise has had a disappointing season thus far and they would like to get back to winning ways after a loss against Chennai Super Kings.
Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers will be the cynosure of all eyes again when Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Thursday at the Wankhede Stadium. Both hard-hitting batsmen have been the driving force behind RCB moving to the top of the IPL points table and, against a weak RR bowling attack missing Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes, they would be raring to go big again.
However, RCB captain Virat Kohli will be looking to bat long and get a big score, something that has eluded him in the first three matches. He scored 33 runs in the first two matches before being dismissed for just five in the third. This will be a good opportunity for him to bat out and return to big runs.
For RR, the challenge will be big against a power-packed RCB batting that starts with the Kohli-Devdutt Padikkal duo and goes on till late.
TOSS: The Indian Premier League match toss between Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals will take place at 7 PM IST.
Time: 7.30 PM IST
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
