GT vs RCB Match Preview, Stats, Pitch Report & Playing XI’s

Article Top Banner 1

One of the best teams in the tournament will be up against one of the struggling teams in the tournament. And when we say struggling, we mean a team who has been bowled out for 68 and 115 in their last two games. Yes, we are talking about Gujarat Titans and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Somehow, both these teams have found very different formulas this year. Gujarat Titans have found this way of winning from almost anywhere and everywhere and their counterparts RCB have found the formula of losing the match from almost anywhere.

RCB will be hoping that they can take this bad run of two games as a serious warning sign and play to their potential and get some very crucial points on the board as we get into the business end of the tournament. Gujarat Titans on the other hand will be hoping that they can continue with the same momentum they have been doing in the tournament so far.

One of the talking points definitely will be about Virat Kohli’s form. 

How the mighty have fallen!

With just 128 runs from 9 games and averaging just 16 this season, Virat Kohli’s rough patch is just getting rougher! But yes, he is a champion player and yes he will be expected to bounce back anytime soon. Form is temporary and class is permanent. And this might just be the game he chooses to stamp his authority on. When the odds are stacked against him, he has to take his team through against a great bowling attack. Isn’t it what he relishes?

So brace yourselves. We might be in for a King Kohli special today!

GT vs RCB Pitch Report

The Brabourne Stadium has been a good batting surface and it also has something for the bowlers as well. With dew not being much of a difference maker in the day game, the captain winning the toss might choose to bat first and put pressure on the opposition.
