Gujarat Lions Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: (Qualifier 1)
Here we are in Bangalore for the first Qualifier between the 2 top teams of the tournament. It’s the Gujarat Lions will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in all important clash and the winner will directly go through the final of the tournament. Match will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru which is home ground of RCB and that will be an edge for RCB over GL. Match will start at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time.
Starting from the Gujarat Lions side who so far is the best team of the tournament and played brilliantly but this time they will play as underdog against the RCB side as they have to play at the home of RCB and RCB is in terrific form so a big task is in front of Gujarat Lions. They also have to keep in mind what RCB has done to them when they last time played against each other and now they will have to go with a full strategy to win against the Bangalore side. Gujrat side have also some dazzling batsmen who have ability to destroy any bowling attack and when RCB bowling attack is in front of u then u always love to hit the ball out of the park most of the time. But this time issue is not with the batting but with their bowling where they have to bowl to dazzling Virat Kohli who is in form of his life and he has scored 2 Hundred against Gujarat so it will be first priority of Gujrat side to get his wicket as soon as possible. Also their middle order has to work on their issues and now they have to take responsibility because they haven’t performed much with the bat and mostly relied on their openers. Good news is that Raina is back in form and he can be dangerous for RCB.
Coming towards the RCB side who have stunned everyone with their performance in the last games and the credit goes to their captain who have scored in all matches and have finally took his team to the finals. Virat Kohli has scored 109, 75*, 113 and 54* and he on his on trough will be surely very brutal. AB De Villiers have also scored runs but in his last few matches he remained a bit inconsistent but he is a world class batsmen and he knows how to play in such crucial matches. Chris Gayle has also got his form back and he is looking very dangerous so in short RCB has batsmen who can score a lot but the problem that RCB might face will be their bowling where they have no match winning bowlers. Chahal has done a great job for the team in bowling and his role will be the most crucial in the bowling of RCB. Iqbal Abdullah has also done a very fine job and he just need to bowl at right length.
Perfect batting conditions are in Bangalore and we will surely see a high scoring match between the 2 sides. There is no rain forecast for the match.
