Rajasthan need to raise their levels against a settled RCB
The RCB vs Rajasthan Royals contest at Mumbai can be in danger of a one sided contest, if Rajasthan Royals do not raise the level of their game. After a couple of decent games Rajasthan looked very flat against CSK and never looked like challenging them. Their top batters like Buttler, Samson and Miller needs to show consistency and lead the way for the youngsters to perform better in IPL.
Even the bowling , which has done well only in patches needs to fire in unison in order to pose a good challenge against the rampaging RCB batsmen. To sum up, the Rajasthan Royals need to do better as a team and need to gel as an unit. One expects Yashaswi Jaiswal to replace inconsistent Manan Vohra as the opener. Shivam Dube and Riyan Parag needs to put in impact performances to justify their talent. Rajasthan need to raise their levels against a settled RCB.
Jaiswal, Buttler, Samson, Miller, Dube, Parag, Morris, Unadkat, Shreyas Gopal, Mustafizur, Chetan Sakariya
RCB look to be in great momentum. The team is gelling well and both the batting and bowling plans are well thought out. Unlike in past many seasons , there has been a consistency in team selections and bowling strategies. With the team performing well, there may not be too many changes in the team.
