Rajasthan Royals vs RC Bangalore IPL Best Bet

Friday, May 27th, 3pm (UK time)

The penultimate match of IPL 15 will see Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore meet in a straight shoot out for a place in the IPL final on Sunday.

Rajat Patidar struck a sublime century in RCB’s victory over the Lucknow Super Giants last time out, and the men in red will fancy their chances of a maiden IPL title after saving their best cricket of the tournament for the past fortnight.

For the Royals it was their expensive bowling at the death which proved their downfall against the Titans, as David Miller pummeled three consecutive sixes off Prasidh Krishna to send Gujarat to the final.

In this encounter I’m diving into the Rajasthan Royals player markets for my picks and backing Sanju Samson and Yuzvendra Chahal to deliver the goods.

The Royals captain looked in superb form last match, striking 47 off 26 balls and taking his tally for the season to 421 runs at a strike rate of 150.35. Although he has only recorded two 50+ scorers this season, he has accumulated another five innings of 30+, indicating he’s had no issues getting in – more converting these starts into big scores.

On what should be a fresh track at the Navendra Modi Stadium and considering Samson has struck three IPL centuries in the past, I’m expecting the Royals captain to go big in this decisive encounter.

In the bowling markets, Chahal is the clear favourite following a stellar season, which sees him currently lead Wanindu Hasaranga by a single wicket in the race for the purple cap.

The wrist spinner – who has picked up 26 wickets at an economy a shade below eight – is now 11 wickets clear of the next best Royals bowler and will be looking to exact revenge on his old franchise when taking the ball on Friday.

The double pays out odds of 11.0, but backing both as singles is still worth a play.

  • Selection: Rajasthan Royals Top Runscorer & Wicket Taker Double – S Samson/Y Chahal
  • Best Odds: 11.0 (PaddyPower)
  • Stake: 5/10

Odds as at 7pm May 26th, 2022. Odds may now differ.
