Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: Temperature is expected to be high during first inning f the match but the good news is no rain is predicted.
Pitch condition: First innings score in the last eight IPL matches played on this ground reads as 185, 160, 195, 159, 184, 205, 176, and 182 and the chasing team winning six out of eight times. The pitch is expected to be batting friendly and the team winning the toss would want to field first.
The pitch is on the slower side and may help spinners a bit.
Rising Pune Supergiant:
- RPS camp would be keeping an eye on Ben Stokes fitness as they missed his bowling in the last match. There is no clarity if he will be fit for tomorrow’s match.
- If Ben Stokes misses, they might bring in Faf du Plessis/Usman Khwaja or Lockie Ferguson in his place.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
- Nothing seems to be going right for Virat’s men. They have played nine games and still trying to find their best bowling and batting combination.
- Chris Gayle’s form at the top has been a concern for RCB camp and they might think to bring in Shane Watson in his place.
- Tymal Mills is expected to come back in place of Travis Head.
- RCB might also look to bring in Harpreet Singh in place of out of form Mandeep Singh.
