RR vs RCB- Prediction, Who Will Win The Match Between Rajasthan Royals And Royal Challengers Bangalore? IPL 2021 Match 43. The 43rd match of IPL 2021 sees Rajasthan Royals take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday. Both teams are sitting on the opposite ends of the points table. Rajasthan Royals have won 4 games out of 10 and thus find themselves at number six on the table.

They have four games left and need to win all of them to book a play-off berth. Their recent form, however, doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. Rajasthan Royals are coming into the contest on the back of two consecutive defeats. They lost their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 wickets on Monday.

Barring Sanju Samson, none of the batsmen made vital contributions to RR’s first innings total. Sanju Samson was brilliant with the bat on a second consecutive occasion. He scored 82 runs off just 57 balls, including 7 fours and 3 sixes. The other prominent names such as Liam Livingstone, Evin Lewis and Lomror went for 4,6 and 29 respectively. Thanks to Samson’s knock, Rajasthan Royals managed to score 164 runs in 20 overs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad didn’t face a lot of problems in chasing down the target. RR bowlers didn’t look effective at all. The likes Chris Morris, Sakariya and Mustafizur have to step up and bowl consistently at good areas if RR want to win the upcoming matches.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will play their 11th match of IPL 2021 against Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. So far, they have managed to secure six wins and four losses in the tournament. They began their UAE with two consecutive defeats but then made a stellar comeback with a 54-run win over Mumbai Indians in their last game.

Virat Kohli and KS Bharat gave a strong start to RCB in the first innings after they lost Devdutt Padikkal early in the innings. Kohli returned to form with a stellar half-century. This was followed by another top innings from Glenn Maxwell, who scored 56 runs off just 37 deliveries, including 6 fours and 3 sixes. Thanks to those vital contributions, RCB notched 165 runs at the end of the first innings.

Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma made a solid start in the second innings, going at 10 runs-an-over in the powerplay. However, Yuzvendra Chahal sent De Kock but to the hut in the 7th over and Maxwell accounted for the wicket of Rohit Sharma in the 10th over to bring RCB back into the game. The likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Krunal Pandya went back without troubling the scorers too much. Harshal Patel’s hat-trick in the seventh over eventually sealed the game for RCB.
