Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rising Pune Supergiant
The 17th game of the Indian Premier League will see Royal Challengers Bangalore compete against Rising Pune Supergiant at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. It will be interesting battle between Virat Kohli and Steven Smith as this time they will be lead their franchises to outdo each other in the Indian Premier League game.
Royal Challengers suffered defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in the last game while Virat Kohli played well in his first game for the side. Kohli and co would be keen to press on the runs from the start to put up big totals on the board. AB de Villiers has also turned up well with the ball in the games played so far. Chris Gayle has not played well and will need to back to his aggressive best to get off Challengers off to flier.
Samuel Badree bowled well and showed why he is such great bowler in the format. He took four wickets including a hat-trick to see Mumbai in all sorts of trouble only for Pollard to save the day for the visitors. Yuzvendra Chahal bowled well and in sync with Badree kept a tight on the scoring. Tymal Mills was bought at a big price but has not justified his price tag going at 8 runs per over. The left-arm pacer needs to quickly change his fortunes otherwise it could be long time on the sidelines.
Steven Smith has scored runs in the competition as Rising Pune will look for inspiration from their captain to turn things around. He has scored 153 runs so far in the competition but other batsmen like Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes and MS Dhoni need to chip with scores on a consistent basis in order for the side to win on a consistent basis.
The side will need to think about their combination as bowling has not up to the scratch besides Rajat Bhatia and Imran Tahir who have been standout bowlers for Pune.
