It will be the first double headed ball in the 2020 Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) and it will be the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) who will initiate the proceedings when they face Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 15th game at Sheikh Zayed Stadium against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
RCB v RR | IPL 2020 Match 15 Live
RCB started its campaign with a win against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), but lost the second game of the season against Kings XI Punjab. However, RCB managed to get back to winning ways after beating the Mumbai Indians (MI) in a thrilling Super Over finish in their third game.
Meanwhile, RR had two wins in as many games – against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and KXIP. However, KKR denied Steve Smith and Co. a hat trick of wins and gave them their first loss of the tournament.
Both teams are now aiming for their third win of the season. These are the players who could play a crucial role in the outcome of the game.
While his ability to get six hits didn’t go unnoticed at this IPL, RR would like Jofra Archer to get an encore on his performance against KKR. The English runabout had hit the floor against the unit led by Dinesh Karthik and was RR’s most successful bowler in the match. If he does well with the ball against greats like Virat Kohli, Finch and ABD, RR will have a chance to claim their third win.
AB de Villiers
AB de Villiers is looking in the zone and that means it’s a good sign for RCB. Mister 360 has scored two fifties in the three games of RCB and even played some delicious punches during his 28-run knock against KXIP. ABD comes into this game against MI because of his sensational 54 * run display and is looking forward to continuing his good form as RCB-Face-RR.
After two impressive hits against CSK and KXIP with 74 and 85 points, respectively, Sanju Samson could only score 8 against KKR. However, he and RR would like to believe that the blow against KKR could just be a slip up. If Samson gets along well with the racket like in the first two games, RR can expect a high result.
In their previous game against MI, the Australian skipper with limited overs set the tone for RCB with a rapid fire of fifty and Aaron Finch is expected to do well again. If he shoots at the top, like he did against MI, it will build a solid foundation for the likes of Virat Kohli and ABD.
While Finch and ABD will be the players to watch over, RR will know Virat will be eager to get the big runs. The RCB skipper hasn’t got a huge score in the 2020 IPL, but one of the best modern batsmen will be out to get a point and get things straight.
