Rajasthan Royals were riding high with success in five straight matches. It was Kings XI Punjab that put a hold to their winning march. That happened to be the most exciting match of this season. The match ended in a tie which was followed by a super over that went Kings way! Hopefully the team has recovered from that shocker under the able guidance of Shane Watson and Rahul Dravid.
Three consecutive losses for Royal Challengers out of the four matches they have played. Virat Kohli and team are still looking for the right combination. At time it seems the match winners are warming the bench. They need to identify the right contenders who should be there right into the match.
RCB relies a lot of Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. If these two click, its almost certain that the team would posts a huge total on board. Virat Kohli needs to seek consistency with his bat. Bowling wise the team needs some discipline. Apart from Mitchell Starc, no other bowler has stuck to good line and length.
For RR, Ajinkya Rahane has been the ace so far. He has consistenly scored runs in all the outings and he holds the Orange Cap. Steve Smith is the second best in their line up with bat. With Watson back into the team, RR gets a lot of batting strength. Hooda is good for few powerful blows that increase the run rate.
Head to head, RR enjoys a 7-6 lead over RCB. Last three matches are won by RR. Both these teams will play their next match on 26th April. RR will face defending champions KKR at Kolkata. RCB will travel to Delhi to face the Daredevils.
