Indian T20 League 2023

RAJ vs BLR, 60th Match

 

Preview

Rajasthan will clash against Bangalore in the 60th match of the Indian T20 League 2023. The match is scheduled at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on 14th May. 

The playoffs race has been the hottest at this point and not a single team has still how officially announced as qualified. Rajasthan has 12 points under their belt and is placed in the fourth place in the points table whereas Bangalore have their seat in the sixth spot in the Indian T20 League leaderboard with 10 points to their name. A victory in this game is important for both sides to seal a spot in the playoffs. 

After being sledged in the last few games, the Sanju Samson-led side finally found their rhythm back against Kolkata in their last game, all thanks to Yashavi Jaiswal’s excellence with the bat. On the other side, Faf Du Plessis and Co have been out of their form as they tasted defeat in both of their last games. They will be craving for a win in this match to stay as a valid candidate in this competition. The previous time both the sides clashed in this year’s Indian T20 League, it was at the home of the Red Devils where they defeated the Rajasthan side by just 7 runs. They will surely take some positives from that contest and hope to come out with the same result in this outing.

Pitch and Weather Report

The surface here becomes to slow down as the match progresses, and spinners will get a good grip and turn here. The batsmen will need to focus on the ball for a few overs before they can freely swing the bat. The Sawai Mansingh Stadium isn’t the most comfortable to bat, and any score over 180 can be difficult here to chase.

The weather is predicted to be on the hotter side at around 41 degrees Celsius.

Match Prediction

The Rajasthan side did not manage to get a win in their previous match against the Red Devils, despite both sides coming into this encounter with weak outings in their last four games. We are expecting a high-scoring encounter with both sides having explosive batters. The trio of Du Plessis, Kohli and Maxwell on the Bangalore side whereas Buttler, Jaiswal and Samson will be the powerhouse of both sides. Seeing Rajasthan’s sublime form we keep them a few points ahead of Bangalore to win this match. 

 

Top Fantasy Picks

Yashasvi Jaiswal- In spite of drafting 575 runs in the Indian T20 League 2023 so far, the young Indian talent is still one run behind Bangalore skipper Faf du Plessis in the Orange Cap race. Both will look forward to outscoring each other in this game.

Yuzvendra Chahal- The spin wizard was the highest getter in the last season of the tournament and dismissed four major batting powers of Kolkata namely Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh and Shardul Thakur in the previous match.

Virat Kohli- The Indian run machine is having an excellent season as an opener but made only one run against Mumbai and will be a prime contributor in this match.

Faf du Plessis- Since becoming the captain, he has been truly consistent in terms of runs scored and his strike rate has been pretty outstanding throughout the competition.  

 

Risky Captaincy Choice

Trent Boult has picked up 20 wickets in nine matches at an economy of 8.14 and an average of 23.08. He has been excellent in the powerplay overs this season, taking nine wickets and approaching a remarkable milestone of 50 powerplay wickets in the Indian T20 League.
