RCB vs RR VIVO IPL 2021 Match 16 Preview:
The sixteenth match of VIVO IPL 2021 will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Wankhede Stadium. Royal Challengers Bangalore are on a golden run of form and have completed a hat-trick of victories and will look forward to continuing their winning streak. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have won only one out of the 3 games they played so far.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is the only team that is still undefeated in the tournament by far and is comfortably sitting on the top-most position of the points table. In their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders, after winning the toss, the Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli decided to bat first but he departed cheaply.
Rajat Patidar got a new role as a middle-order batsman but failed to impress with the bat once again. As soon as Glenn Maxwell came to bat, he took the central stage and smashed the bowlers out of the park. He scored 78 runs off 49 deliveries, including 9 fours and 3 sixes. Devdutt Padikkal also scored a slow 25 runs and played the role of the anchor upfront.
Towards the end of the inning, the showman AB de Villiers showed his class once again and played a breathtaking knock of 76 runs off 34 deliveries to help the team reach a huge total of 204 runs. While defending this total, the bowlers did a decent job and restricted Kolkata Knight Riders to a total of 166 runs, and registered a victory by 38 runs.
The notable bowling performances were 3 wickets from Kyle Jamieson, 2 wickets each from Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel, and a wicket from Washington Sundar as well. The team is in good form and is likely to continue with their winning combination.
Talking about Rajasthan Royals, after winning their second game, they lost the third game to Chennai Super Kings (CSK). After winning the toss, skipper Sanju Samson decided to bowl first in response to which Chennai Super Kings piled up a good total of 188 runs. In the bowling department, Chetan Sakariya was the pick of the bowlers as he picked 3 wickets.
Chris Morris grabbed 2 wickets while Mustafizur Rahman and Rahul Tewatia picked a wicket each. While chasing this target, the Rajasthan Royals got off to a poor start and lost opener Manan Vohra and skipper Sanju Samson cheaply. While on the other end, Jos Buttler single-handedly carried the innings and scored 49 runs off 35 deliveries.
Apart from him, Rahul Tewatia scored 20 runs while Jaydev Unadkat scored 24 runs but still failed to lead the team to victory and faced a defeat by 45 runs. The middle order of Rajasthan Royals is a major concern for them and they must be looking to improve on that front.
Out of a total of 23 clashes between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals, the scoreline is evenly poised at 10 victories to both teams while 3 games went resultless. Both the teams will try to gain a lead over the other in this match.
