RR vs RCB, Indian Premier League 2022, Match 13
Date and Time: 5th April 2022, 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
A good batting track is expected at the Wankhede Stadium despite the average first-innings total in IPL 2022 at the venue being 142 runs. The powerplay phase will be key with ample amount of swing available with the new ball. The spinners could also get some turn in the middle overs despite the dew factor. Wickets in hand will be key, with both IPL teams preferring to chase under the lights. 170 should be par at the venue with the pitch not expected to change much during the game.
Today’s RR vs RCB Dream11 match top picks
Jos Buttler: Jos Buttler was at his supreme best in the previous game, scoring a hundred against the Mumbai Indians. Buttler is a fine player of pace and can more than hold his own against spin. With form on his side, Buttler should get the nod over Dinesh Karthik, who is expected to bat lower down the order for RCB.
Virat Kohli: Although it is still early days in IPL 2022, Virat Kohli has blown hot and cold in the tournament. He is one of the finest players in the world and has a knack for scoring big runs in the top order. Although the Rajasthan Royals have a strong spin attack to counter him, Virat's experience should hold him in good stead ahead of the game.
Wanindu Hasaranga: Wanindu Hasaranga starred in the previous game for RCB, picking up four wickets against KKR. The Sri Lankan all-rounder is one of the best leg-spinners in the world with his variations and accuracy being key. Given his recent form, Hasaranga should make for a good addition to your RR vs RCB Dream11 fantasy team.
Yuzvendra Chahal: Yuzvendra Chahal has impressed for the Royals, with his leg-spin delivering a few wickets in the middle overs. The leggie will want to come up with a good performance against his former employers RCB and prove a point at their expense. Like Hasaranga, Chahal has also been in fine form, making him a must-have in your RR vs RCB Dream11 fantasy team.
