Virat Kohli In Center As RCB Point To Halt High-Flying Rajasthan Royals
When Royal Challengers Bangalore face Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday; they’ll be hoping to stop Jos Buttler’s run. After his second consecutive first-ball duck in the competition, Virat Kohli will be examined as well. After a destitute who appeared in the previous game, RCB will be expecting for the return of its finest batsman; as well as a much improved forward batting execution. Rajasthan has won two consecutive games and is in good form this season; while the Challengers are coming off a crushing nine-wicket defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
While Kohli will be the focus, RCB also possesses power-hitters in captain Faf Du Plessis; Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik, and Shahbaaz Ahmed who can be deadly on their day, and the RR attack will struggle if they fire in unison. The willow has had a rough relationship with Du Plessis, his team’s leading run scorer, but he remains a crucial cog in the wheel. Karthik is also doing a good job as the finisher, thanks to his striking prowess. Rajasthan’s diverse attack will go up against them, led by Trent Boult, who has previously bothered Kohli with his deliveries.

The RCB hitters could be troubled by Prasidh Krishna and the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal. Chahal, who has 18 wickets thus far, has the ability to turn the game around.

Rajasthan’s opener, Jos Buttler, has been in outstanding form this season, scoring three hundreds.
Devdutt Padikkal, the captain, and Devdutt Padikkal, the opener, have been toying with opposition attacks and are among the runs. Shimon Hetymar, on the other hand, is capable of exacerbating the bowling team’s troubles with his ruthless assault.
RR will be looking for a repeat performance from the top of the order at the MCA Stadium, which has seen plenty of high-scoring games.
Karun Nair and Riyan Parag are the weak links in Rajasthan’s batting, and they will have to come up and deliver.
Harshal Patel is the strongest death bowler for RCB, but he’ll need help from Mohammed Siraj and Josh Hazlewood.
The four overs bowled by Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who has 11 wickets, might decide the match.
