Rising Pune Supergiant Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match 34
Question in detail
Rising Pune Supergiant Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, match No. 34, MCA stadium, Indore: RCB's struggles continue to mount match after match in IPL 2017, with obvious reasons to their woes being nagging batting failures and off-colored bowling display. Moreover, lack of intent and inverse nature of their home pitch that generically favors stroke play have been major contributors to their misery. Bangalore needs resurrection to secure a birth in one of the top four spots. The task might be difficult, but RCB's potential to bounce back is no suspicion. However, it would take them a collective team effort from head to toe. So, they can't be over reliant on Kohli or de Villiers either to become the winner of RPS Vs RCB match at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.
Royal Challengers Bangalore seems to have put too much of pressure on themselves as a team. They have gone past the trial and error stage now. Each game from here on is going to be crucial (a must win game) for them. They have not been clinical in tournament so far barring a couple of games that they won. Nevertheless, they still have five games to go. And if they become the winner of RPS Vs RCB match at MCA Stadium, they would gain some momentum for the rest of the tournament.
A loss to Kolkata following a washout and a disappointing defeat to Lions thereafter did enough damage to RCB's quest for the playoff qualification. Almost out of the playoff race, RCB has 5 more matches to resurrect their campaign. They have to win all their remaining games, which looks nearly impossible from here on. One defeat would show them the exit door, and RCB knows the fact well. The task could have been a bit easier if they had the cushion of one match or two. But, that's not the case with RCB at the moment. In Rising Pune Supergiant Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore match, RCB is likely to go aggressive as a matter of course.
Pune would be pleased if not overjoyed sitting middle of the table after half of the tournament. One of the top four positions at this stage means a lot for a team, particularly one who lost three of their first four games. Rising Pune Supergiant had been unbeaten for the last three matches, but a desperate home defeat to KKR in the last match broke their winning streak. Nonetheless, one win from here on will tone up their playoff chances. And, they will eye it in their home game against off colored RCB.
Will RCB keep their playoff prospects on the hoof beating RPS at MCA stadium, Pune?
