Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals Players Battles Preview:
IPL 2022 RCB vs RR Key Players Battles To Watch Out For Today. It won’t be wrong to state that RCB and RR are two of the best teams this season. RCB has won games despite their star players failing. There seems to be a nice balance about their squad.
The Rajasthan Royals on the other side have been dominant. It has been a season to remember for them so far. They are the only team whose big-ticket players have been fired. It will be a battle between two strong sides. The RR vs RCB player battles can’t get any bigger.
We look at the RCB vs RR Key Players battles in this game:
#1 Virat Kohli vs Prasidh Krishna
It was Prasidh Krishna who got Virat Kohli’s wicket in UAE last year. Krishna since then has made rapid strides. He has gone on to play for India. He is one of RR’s main bowlers. Krishna has the uncanny ability to pick the big wicket. He will fancy his chance against an out of form, Virat Kohli. The early seam movement seems to trouble Kohli lately more than ever. He will be keen to see off this challenge.
#2 Faf du Plessis vs Trent Boult
Trent Boult has made the new ball talk as he always does. He has been fantastic upfront setting up games for RR. Boult will be keen to take on the big RCB fish, Faf du Plessis. Faf is someone who is susceptible to the incoming ball. Marco Jansen has already exposed the chink in his armor. Boult will look to go one better when he faces up against Faf in this game.
If there is one contest that can be potential box-office, it has to be this. Glenn Maxwell vs Yuzvendra Chahal might just be one of the highlights of this edition. Maxwell is someone who is known to take the attack to the spinners. It won’t be any different when he comes up against Chahal.
Chahal on the other hand will be waiting for Maxwell to go after him. The wily wrist-spinner has already trumped the best in the business this season. Big show vs grandmaster will be the key battle tomorrow.
#4 Jos Buttler vs Josh Hazlewood
He has been the season’s best batsman. Jos Buttler comfortably leads the orange cap race (491 runs). He has three centuries to his name already. The Royals have got to flying starts thanks to Buttler. But he will be up against the new-ball expert, Josh Hazlewood. The addition of Hazlewood has already added a lot of muscle to the RCB squad. If he manages to nip out Buttler early, RCB will already be on top.
#5 Shimron Hetmyer vs Harshal Patel
The RR finisher, Shimron Hetmyer has been the standout batsman at the death. He has been explosive against the best in the business. RR will be banking on Hetmyer to counter the end overs threat in Harshal Patel. The RCB bowler has been exceptional at the death in the last couple of seasons. It will be the best vs best at the death this game. One who manages to come on top will have made a telling impact on the game.
