Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will square off in Game 60 of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) on May 14 at Jaipur’s Sawai Mansingh Stadium.
RCB has five victories in 11 games while RR has six victories in their 12 games. From this point forward, neither of the two teams can afford to lose any games.
The anticipated player Battles are listed below
1. Trent Boult vs Virat Kohli
When the two teams met earlier in the season, Trent Boult dismissed Virat Kohli for a golden duck.
However, Kohli has never been trapped by the New Zealand pacer during the IPL.
The latter has a respectable strike rate of 127.65 and has scored 60 runs in this contest.
This season, Kohli has a strike rate of 157.62 against pacers with the left arm.
2. Yuzvendra Chahal vs Glenn Maxwell
Yuzvendra Chahal and Glenn Maxwell will face off in the middle overs of the RCB innings. While Maxwell has been dismissed by the leg-spinner three times in eight IPL innings, he has a strike rate of 123.68 in this match.
This season, Maxwell has had a strike rate of 169 points against leg-spinners. He has been their victim three times. Chahal has notable four-wicket hauls from his last two games.
3.Mohammed Siraj vs Yashasvi Jaiswal
Yashasvi Jaiswal recently hit the fastest IPL fifty (off 13 balls), so RCB would like to keep him quiet. With the new ball, Mohammed Siraj is capable of possessing a challenge against him.
The southpaw, though, has previously performed admirably against Siraj, scoring 34 runs off 25 balls without being dismissed.
Siraj has taken 15 wickets so far this year, eight of them in the powerplay.
4. Wanindu Hasaranga vs Sanju Samson
With a scorching 48* in his most recent game, Sanju Samson roared back to form. Wanindu Hasaranga needs to hit his target against Samson in order to maintain his season-high strike rate of 186 points against leg-spinners.
However, in the previous season, Hasaranga three times outed the RR captain while allowing 23 runs off of the same number of deliveries. But this season, the Sri Lankan star has not been at his best.
