Rajasthan and Bangalore will be pitted against one another for the second time this season. The Virat Kohli-led Bangalore team got the best of Rajasthan the last time these two teams met, winning the match by a wide, 8-wicket margin. In the points table, both of these teams are put far apart, reflecting the way their campaign has so far turned out.
Out of the 8 games they played, Rajasthan managed to win just 3. Bangalore has done well, on the other hand, and are having one of their best T20 League rounds. Thanks to their 5 win in 8 matches, with 10 points in their bag they are put in the third position in the points table. So, it would be essential to see if Rajasthan could balance the strength of their Bangalore counterparts and settle the score from their previous face-off.
Saturday’s weather in Dubai will be clear. And a full-length match is very much on the cards, with no chance of rainfall and a temperature hovering around the 31 degrees Celsius level.
Scoring runs will not be an issue for the batsmen in the first innings of the match, just like any other ground in the United Arab Emirates where the Indian T20 League is being played. But the bowlers did not find it hard at all to contain the flood of runs in the second inning.
