Vivo IPL 2021 is going successfully behind the bar! The sixteenth match of the Indian premium league 2021 is set to be played on 22nd April, Thursday, between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
RCB vs. RR Dream 11 Match Preview:
Thursday night will be a glorious night for both RR, and RCB fans as both teams will face each other for the first time in 2021 IPL. Royals Challengers Bangalore has started their IPL journey pretty well with a hattrick win streak. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have won only one game out of 3, which is disappointing.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is currently the one team that is still undefeated in the tournament and holds the second position after CSK. In the last match against KKR, skipper Virat decided to bat first, but unfortunately, the opening pair failed to score big. But Maxwell and ABD successfully handled the situation and played the fearless game. RCB was set a huge target of 204 runs in front of KKR and won the match comfortably.
RCB bowlers have been showing their true talents, and players like Yuzvendra Chahal, Kyle Jamieson, and Harshal Patel are in great form and perform well for RCB.
When it comes to Rajasthan Royals, they struggled to continue winning against CSK in their last match after winning the second game. Rajasthan Royals need to focus more on their batting and bowling to come back stronger in IPL 2021.
These two teams have played 23 matches, and both Bangalore and Rajasthan managed to win 10 matches each. Three games went no result due to rain. This match will be very intense and a must-win game for Rajasthan Royals. Let’s see who is winning this big battle.
