Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Gujarat Titans Head To Head Records Preview:

RCB vs GT Head to Head: It might arguably be the last dance for Royal Challengers Bangalore this season. They squandered a solid chance to make a dash into the playoffs. The big loss against Punjab might well come back to bite them. They need to win big against table-toppers, Gujarat Titans. The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will play host to this contest. 

Current Form: Royal Challengers Bangalore

It has been a classic case of RCB doing RCB things this season. At the halfway stage of the competition, they looked well placed to make it to the playoffs. They had 5 wins from 7 seven games at one point. But their season slowly started unraveling post that. They were bowled out for a low of 68 batting first in the game against SRH. RCB failed to chase down a score of 140 odd in the next game against RR. Their top-order failed to come to the party in crucial games. It led to RCB losing three games on the trot.

RCB pulled things back in the next couple of games. They batted first against CSK and SRH to notch comprehensive wins. The strategy seemed to be working for RCB. But strangely they chose to chase in the following game against PBKS. PBKS posted a daunting score of 200+. The move backfired big time as RCB lost badly in this crucial game. It has left them with no choice but to win big in their last league game. RCB has a lot of ground to cover in this match. They will want to do it for their fans.

Current Form: Gujarat Titans

The Gujarat Titans have very little to play for in their last league game. They sealed the playoff spot with 2 games left. In their last match, they confirmed their spot at the top of the standings. GT will play the first qualifier at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. It has been an unprecedented season for the newcomers. They had won 8 out of their first 9 games. Gujarat stuttered and then lost two games on the bounce. 

They briefly lost their top spot to Lucknow Super Giants. Incidentally, they were pitted to play them next. GT thumped LSG to reclaim the top spot. They then outplayed CSK to firmly secure the first place. GT will be keen to maintain the winning momentum. They are a team devoid of stars but players who have put the team ahead of themselves.

The stakes:

The RCB has everything to play for while GT has nothing to lose in game number 67. RCB need to win big if they are to stay in contention for the playoffs as their net run rate is in the negative.
