IPL 2020; Oct 3, RCB vs RR Match 15 preview, Pitch report and Prediction

Today, 3rd Oct 2020 Saturday RCB will face off RR at Sheikh Zayed stadium. The match will start at 3.30 PM IST. Virat Kohli led-RCB has won 2 out of 3 total matches played by a small margin or we can probably say they just escaped losing. They need to buck up as their NRR (-1.450) is not appropriate.

On the contrary, Rajasthan Royals had a great start in the tournament by 2 consistent winnings but somehow missed their hat-trick in the 3rd match. The venue was quite tricky and they could not adapt to the new environment. They were beaten up by KKR by 37 runs margin in Dubai.

We expect it will be a neck to neck competition as both the teams are quite eager to bag the victory. The star performers from both the teams to look out for:

Pitch Reports

The pitch is balanced for batting and bowling. In the second half, batting becomes tricky due to dew. So the past performances show that it’s better to bat first.

The temperature will be high to 38 degree Celsius to a low 29 degree in the night.

Our Prediction:

RR has more chances to win as they just lost a match and the aggression is there to grab the opportunity whereas RCB’s performance has always been unexpected.
