Despite their narrow loss to Kolkata Knight Riders, Astrologer Pt. Anil Chaubey predicts, Bangalore to do well against Rajasthan Royals. here are some key predictions for the match.

It was a demoralising two-run defeat for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against Kolkata Knight Riders the other night, but they will have to pick up the pieces on a good batting track at Abu Dhabi against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Match 14 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Both Rajasthan and Bangalore are coming in to this game losing their previous matches closely. Rajasthan faltered against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) a day before RCB did.

How does the match unfold:

Unlike the stuttering chase, RCB are likely to bat first. With Virat Kohli in the side, this is a team which has fancied chasing totals. But today, RCB will have to set up up a solid total and are likely to defend against the Royals.

Key Players: Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli. Rahane has been the batting mainstay for a long time now. In the previous match, he was dismissed run-out thanks to a miscommunication between him and Abhishek Nayar. But the technically solid opener will lead the RR batting charge. Kohli, as usual will be the key in the Bangalore line-up. Despite AB de Villiers, Yuvraj Singh and other heavyweights, Kohli continues to be the consistent one not just this time around but across all seasons.

Likely Flops: Ashoke Dinda, Sanju Samson, Yuvraj Singh.  Dinda has received a lot of flak in the past seasons for his length bowling. It may not be a memorable day for Dinda against RR. As for Yuvraj, the left-hander has scored a few runs but has struggled to score fluently. It might not be a good day for young Sanju Samson as well. Samson has had a good season so far but against Bangalore, things might get tough for him.

Who will win: RCB hold the edge. Batting first, they could post anywhere around 160-170 and will defend it comfortably.
