Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) on 15th April at Chinnaswamy Stadium. Both the teams have a positive state of mind as both of them have won their previous games.
The 11th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) will see a clash between Virat Kohli’s RCB and Ajinkya Rahane’s RR. However, all does not seem well for this game as it could be hit by rain.
Bangalore games were hit by rain 3-4 times last season and it seems like the rain curse is set to return today as well, as there is a 31% chance of rain right before the start of the game.
RCB are favourites after the way they played against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). RCB bowling department which was considered the weak zone of the team did well in the previous game and they played together as a team.
On the other hand, RR is coming after a 6 over shootout victory against Delhi Daredevils (DD). RR bowlers bowled really well to seal the match for the team. But it’s time for the batsmen to join the party on a small ground and make it count.
According to Accu Weather, it is currently cloudy in Bengaluru with the temperature around 28-32 Degree Celsius. It is likely to remain the same throughout the day and might be cloudier during the course of the game.
There are chances of rain just before the game but during the game the weather should be cool and good for cricket.
As far as humidity is concerned, there should be very less of it, something that will be wonderful for all supporters coming out for the Green game.
RCB will bat for Go Green Initiative on the day and interestingly, they have never disappointed the fans in the green jersey. The game is expected to be a high-scoring thriller game.
The two teams have faced each other on 16 occasions in the IPL. RCB has a slight advantage as they have 8 wins while RR has 7.
