Rajasthan is in desperate need to win this match against Bangalore.
The 33rd match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Rajasthan and Bangalore at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai . We have got the best Rajasthan vs Bangalore team prediction for today’s match.
Rajasthan vs Bangalore Match 33 is scheduled to start at 03:30 PM IST (02:00 PM local time) (10:00 AM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
After an outstanding first half of the season, Bangalore suffered yet another defeat against Punjab and now are sitting at third spot in the points table with five wins in eight games. They made a couple of mistakes regarding AB de Villiers‘ batting position and failed to grab their chances with the ball and will be hoping to get back on track again in Dubai.
It was surprising to see Udana and Chahal not completing their four overs instead of Siraj who went for 14 runs per over. However, it was a wake up call and they have got a pretty balanced team to come out of this and register another win over Rajasthan in Dubai.
On the other side, Rajasthan will be desperate for a win in Dubai which is not less than a do or die situation for them. With Punjab coming back to winning ways, it is high time for Rajasthan to convert their starts to a match winning finish and get ahead in the points table. Their overseas batting stars continued to let the team down and bring some questions to the decision of opening with Ben Stokes and including Robin Uthappa in the XI.
However, we might see some changes in their batting order, otherwise their bowling has been top notch in the last couple of games. In context of this tournament, a win for Rajasthan will liven up the tournament and can be a very dangerous team to deal with.
