Veteran Indian cricket journalist, Aakash Chopra has said that AB de Villiers will probably be the top performer for Bangalore in the game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Saturday. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Rajasthan Royals in match 33 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.
Both sides have been coming on the back of facing a loss in their previous games. While Royal Challengers Bangalore were beaten by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by 8 wickets in their previous match, Rajasthan Royals succumbed to Delhi Capitals (DC) in their last game by 13 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Aakash Chopra Backs AB de Villiers To Deliver The Goods For RCB Against RR
Speaking on his Twitter, Aakash Chopra said that AB de Villiers will be hungry as he did not get the chance to bat for a long time in the last game and today he will be out there to prove a point.
“AB de Villiers didn’t get the chance to bat in the last game and hence, he will be hungry to go out there and make a mark in today’s game. In this game, I reckon that de Villiers will once again show his aggressive side and smash the Rajasthan bowlers all over the park,” Aakash Chopra said.
“We have seen him perform at Dubai and I believe that today will be nothing different. When you have lost the last game, then he will have a huge say in this game and will try to recover from the previous loss. If AB goes on to play well, RCB stands a chance of winning the game quite comfortably,” Aakash Chopra added.
It’s a must-win game for Rajasthan Royals as they are in the bottom half of the points table. They have had a disastrous campaign so far and will look to regain the momentum with a win over RCB. If they lose this game, they won’t be able to qualify for the playoffs in most probability.
