He averages 62.50 in this season and has strike-rate of 189.39. He would be eager to have a go at Wankhede’s short boundaries.
Rajasthan Royals Playing 11 (likely)
Rajasthan Royals Team News:
RR batsman Liam Livingstone has returned to England due to bubble fatigue.
Playing Combination: J Buttler will open the innings but who will partner him? Manan Vohra hasn’t got runs yet. So, RR might swap him with Jashasvi Jaiswal. S Samson, D Miller, and R Parag will bat in the middle order. C Sakariya, J Unadkat, and M Rehman will handle bowling duties.
KOL Playing 11:
J Buttler found form in the last game as he ransacked 49 runs from 35 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes. He is a champion batter and can play another big knock. He has made 1790 runs in 61 IPL matches with an average of 34.42 and a strike rate of 149.04. He has slammed 11 fifties as well.
J Unadkat can be an X factor in this game with his left-arm angle and ability to swing the ball, especially with the new ball. He was wicket-less in the last game but had claimed 3 wickets for 15 runs in the game before that. He has 84 wickets in 82 IPL games at a strike-rate of 20.14 and averages 29.46 per wicket.
Bangalore are in fine form and especially their batting is in tremendous touch. So they start the game with the upper hand. So in the BLR vs RR Dream11 today match prediction expect BLR to win the game.
