Match Preview: Can Rajasthan keep their hopes alive?
It’s the battle of the bottom two as Kohli and Smith, captains of the world’s leading cricket teams to collide at the batting heaven known as Chinnaswamy Stadium. With 4 wins from 12 games, RCB is just playing for the sake it. Or in Kohli’s words- ” we are just enjoying ourselves”.
RCB has got nothing to lose as their chances of qualifying are next to impossible. But that’s what makes them the most dangerous. With no added pressure to perform, you don’t want world class batsmen like Kohli and DeVelliers to play with freedom!
On the other hand, with 5 wins, Rajasthan still has a slight chance of qualifying. Although, with no Buttler, Archer, Stokes (not that anyone’s missing him!) and possibly the last few games for captain Steve Smith, RR’s chances of qualifying are bleak.
We Know Cricket’s Hot Take 🔥
The Royals need to win both of their remaining matches. The good thing is that RCB is already out of contention and might not play with full enthusiasm. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals have already qualified and might rest a few players before the semis, bringing a considerable weaker side to the ground for their match against RR. Rajasthan can get these wins if they play to their potential. Apart from winning, they also need to keep an eye on the run rate as a lot of teams would be eyeing that 3rd and 4th spot and it’ll surely boil down to the run-rate at the end.
With the race for the semis in full flow, it’d be interesting to see who gets the upper hand tonight and gets one step closer to that prestigious semi-final spot! Let’s see which players you should have and which ones to avoid in your Dream 11 Teams.

RCB vs RR 2019 Dream11 Team & Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Although Parthiv has done well for RCB, our first pick would be Samson. He has scored 309 runs in 10 matches for RR which includes a century as well.
Batsmen: Kohli and ABD gets an instant pass. Rahane has being playing well since he was sacked as captian and should be picked. Add Livingstone as Bangalore’s fast and bouncy pitch might suit him as he is used to play on similar pitches back home. Steve Smith is another crucial pick
All-rounders: The 17 year old Parag is the new-comer who has taken the world by storm by his massive hits. It would be interesting to see how he performs at the Chinnaswamy on fast-bouncy pitches. Stoinis has been in a good knick and could be the second allrounder in your Dream 11 squad.
Bowlers: Chahal has been the only decent bowler from the RCB camp and canbe picked. Shreyas Gopal has been the leading wicket taker for RR and must be included in your Dream11 squad. Complete your lineup with either Oshane Thomas or Saini.
Captain & Vice Captain: Kohli, ABD, Smith, Rahane, Livingstone- are all good options.
RCB vs RR 2019 Dream11 Team Suggestion #1:
Samson(Wk), Rahane, Livingstone, Kohli, ABD, Parag, Stoinis,Sundar, Gopal, Chahal, Saini.
Captain: Kohli VC: ABD
RCB vs RR 2019 Dream11 Team Suggestion #2:
Parthiv(Wk), Smith, Livingstone, Kohli, ABD, Parag, Stoinis, Binny, Gopal, Aaron, Saini.
Captain: Kohli VC: Smith
RCB vs RR 2019: Match Prediction
RCB is looking dangerous now that they have nothing to lose. It would be tough for RR to beat RCB at home as they lack the big hitting prowess needed t score at the Chinnaswamy.
