Dream11 Prediction: RCB vs RR Team Best Players to Pick for Today’s IPL T20 Match between Royal Challengers and Royals at 8PM

Dream 11 Tips and Predictions

Rajasthan Royals skipper Steve Smith won the toss and elected to bowl first vs Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore in Match 49 of IPL 2019 on Tuesday.

Rajasthan Royals (Playing XI): Ajinkya Rahane, Liam Livingstone, Sanju Samson(w), Steven Smith(c), Riyan Parag, Stuart Binny, Mahipal Lomror, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Varun Aaron, Oshane Thomas

Royal Challengers Bangalore (Playing XI): Parthiv Patel(w), Virat Kohli(c), AB de Villiers, Heinrich Klaasen, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Marcus Stoinis, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya, Yuzvendra Chahal

Two changes for RCB as Shivam Dube sits out and in comes Delhi pacer Kulwant Khejroliya for his first game of the season. Pawan Negi also comes in. For Rajasthan Royals. Allrounder Mahipal Lomror replaces Ashton Turner.

With a loss to Delhi Capitals in their previous game, RCB’s slim chances of qualifying for the playoffs went up in smoke and even though there is a mathematical chance for them to qualify, given they would need to win both of their remaining games, skipper Virat Kohli seems to have resigned to the fact that his team is out of the race.

Today’s IPL match is between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

Rajasthan, with 10 points from 12 games, still have a theoretical chance to make it to the IPL 2019 playoffs, provided they do not lose any of their remaining two matches. Also, they would require Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals to defeat their respective opponents.

With a loss to Delhi Capitals in their previous game, RCB’s slim chances of qualifying for the playoffs went up in smoke and even though there is a mathematical chance for them to qualify, given they would need to win both of their remaining games, skipper Virat Kohli seems to have resigned to the fact that his team is out of the race.

The emphasis is on having fun, so we could see RCB’s bench getting some ‘fun time’ in the middle.

From the RCB squad, only four players have not a game: Himmat Singh, Kulwant Khejroliya, Milind Kumar and 18-year-old Devdutt Padikkal – all young and highly talented.

Navdeep Saini, who has had a good season with the ball, could be rested in place of his Delhi team-mate, Khejroliya, who played a handful of games for RCB last season.

Possible changes: Navdeep Saini for Kulwant Khejroliya.
