It’s Match 17 – Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rising Pune Supergiant. Shruti Chopra explains how she sees this match unfold..
Having Virat Kohli back is definitely a huge boost for Bangalore, in fact, today he’ll be more aggressive, but I will add a word of caution here – for him to captain clearly he may need to calm down a bit because today’s match will require him to maintain good focus, especially when they’re bowling in the middle overs, that’s where it could go wrong for Bangalore and it could be a much needed boost for Pune. Bangalore’s batting cards do seem to be better – there seems to be more consistency, whereas Pune’s batting blows hot and cold. Bowling for Pune seems to be just the same – lacking the required control to generate wickets quick enough.
There appears to be ups and downs in this game, but tarot advantage is with Royal Challengers Bangalore.
