Bangalore, Apr 19 : Struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on inconsistent Rajasthan Royals here on Tuesday at M Chinnaswamy stadium.
RCB has undergone three defeats in four matches and now they are very desperate to win today’s match against Rajasthan Royals to revive their fortunes.
Talk about RCB, Balanced side but over-dependency on Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers to perform and produce match winning knocks has seen RCB to the bottom of table. Both batsmen are consistent with bat and performing in every match but not able to get the support from other batsmen.
Guys like Saurabh Tiwary, Cheteshwar Pujara, Mayank Agarwal are not performing at their potential. Fans of RCB are very unhappy with the team performance.
Bowling is also unimaginative that we have already seen in last four matches. Captain Daniel Vettori is also struggling and has performed ordinary in all four matches. Bowlers come in pressure when they go for runs, so captain needs to have faith in his bowlers and motivate them to perform at crucial stages.
Fielding is also pathetic, dropping catches at crucial time took them to a losing stage that we have already seen in last match against CSK when a simple catch of Michael Hussey was dropped and then Hussey went on to make a match winning 56-ball 83* not out.
Inconsistency is a major problem for Rajasthan Royals. They had a poor day against Kolkata Knight Riders when they bowled out for a miserly 81 but they have the resources and tenacity to bounce back from such a situation.
After playing such a wonderful inning against Bangladesh Shane Watson is full of confidence and he can destroy any bowling line up at his day. Dravid’s power to rotate strike and playing an anchor-sheet role with youngsters is again a big challenge for RCB and he would also be eager to perform against his former team.
Shane Warne is good at captaincy, this OZ is doing great with both bat and bowl and would be eager to perform in today’s match after a tough match against KKR.
If RCB can tackle Watson, Dravid and Warne they can easily win this match and can break their losing streak.
