Rajasthan Royals to play with the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Tuesday. Both sides come into this game on the back of defeats to Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings respectively and will be itching for a win.
RCB were defeated by the Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday and Kohli’s men will be very eager to turn their fortunes around.
We pick out three face offs on the field that you just cannot miss.
1. Umesh Yadav vs. Sanju Samson
Sanju Samson, who scored a century against the SRH in Hyderabad last week, will be keen on getting another big score in the tournament. He will be up against India international Umesh Yadav- the one who can wreak havoc if he is on the song.
Just like the other RCB bowlers, Umesh Yadav was rendered ineffective by Jonny Bairstow and David Warner during their game against Sunrisers Hyderabad but will be keen on getting back on his tunes and this match against the Rajasthan Royals will provide him with ample opportunity.
Virat Kohli vs. Jofra Archer
Rajasthan Royal’s fast bowler Jofra Archer was amazing in his side’s last game against the CSK in Chennai and finished with figures of 4-1-17-2 at an economy rate of 4.25. He will be eyeing RCB and
Indian captain Virat Kohli’s wicket on Tuesday. Virat will have to be aware and choose his shots wisely.
Kohli will be itching to get back amongst the runs again. The game against the RR on Tuesday will be another chance for him.
AB de Villiers vs Ben Stokes
RR’s English all-rounder Ben Stokes is someone who can change a game quickly on its head but he has had an indifferent IPL this season. Stokes will have the unenviable task of taking wickets of the great AB de Villiers when the two sides meet in
De Villiers had a rare quiet game against the SRH, will hope that he can get some runs now. Along with Virat Kohli, he is one batsman that the team looks up to in difficult times.
