Indian Premier League 2019 | RR vs RCB | RR vs RCB 14th Match DOTBALL PREDICTION TIPS, GUIDE AND PREVIEW
Jaipur, April 2, Tuesday at 08:00 PM IST
Match 14 at IPL 2019 will witness two teams battling it out to get out of the last position, ironically its the battle of the royals to get out of the wooden spoon position. Rajasthan Royals may find it awkward to be in this position towards the start of the tournament as they ended losing the matches in a very close fashion, thanks to their excessive choking.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have problems a plenty and it is evident that their stellar batting lineup is not working as it should. Both teams would like to get out of the losing streak as another loss could lead to serious pressure on their dream to qualify for the playoffs.
RR vs RCB Dotball Preview
Choking Rajasthan Royals looking for their maiden win
Rajasthan Royals have got some impressive batsmen who came up with mindblowing knocks. Be it Jos Buttler’s innings or Sanju Samson’s century, it has not been enough to take the Royals beyond the finish line. The batting position of Ben Stokes was a big question until his fighting 46* off just 26 balls against CSK which gave them the scare of losing their first game in the tournament. Tripathi looked in good knick as well. Overall, the Royals should consider that their batting strengths have the potential which is not tapped well enough.
Bowling a major cause for concern for RR as the heavily priced Unadkat has not lived up to the expectations. There is a lack of experience when it comes to handling pressure situations and Rahane would love to address it in the coming games.
Royal Challengers Bangalore – Will the Losing Streak Continue?
Royal Challengers Bangalore have a lot of expectations riding on their shoulders after a triple defeat to start IPL 2019. There are problems aplenty in the bowling department with the experience of Umesh Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal proving to be worthless. Bad decisions at the IPL auction by the management is also a prime reason for RCB’s poor performance this season. Determined Kohli looks helpless when his team is at the receiving end and he is one person who would love to see a resurgence in the next game.
The batting lineup of the Royal Challengers Bangalore was touted to be the best on paper with Shimron Hetmyer’s inclusion this year but it has failed miserably in times when it had the opportunity to deliver.
