IPL 2022: RR vs RCB Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain & Vice-Captain, Playing XI, Pitch report, and other updates

With back-to-back wins in their first two games, RR are riding high on confidence in the initial days of IPL 15.


The 13th match of IPL 15 will stage the Royal showdown, as RCB squares off against RR in Mumbai. Rajasthan Royals are at the top of the points table with 4 points and a net run rate over 2. Sanju Samson and his troops have outclassed other teams in both batting and bowling, and have clearly dictated the terms on the field. RCB’s start has been a mixed bag with a win and a loss in their first 2 matches. However, RCB will fancy their chances against RR after their bowling attack rediscovered its mojo back against KKR. The clash of two heavyweights is all set to go down the wire as neither of the teams will back down without a fightback.

RR vs RCB Dream 11 Top Picks

Sanju Samson

Sanju Samson is amongst IPL’s greatest discoveries for Indian cricket. From a promising prodigy to now a bona fide gamechanger, His ability to adjust to situations of the game makes him the kingpin of the side. He smashed a 27-ball 55 and bagged the Player of the Match award in RR’s first clash against SRH. A decent 30 from his bat gave RR the much-needed momentum in the middle overs in their previous game against MI. Once again, all eyes will be on the skipper on how he marshals his team in Wankhede.

Yuzvendra Chahal

To see Chahal not don the RCB colors in IPL anymore was a heartbreak for the red and gold brigade. The leggie’s long-time association with the franchise resulted in several magical performances as he emerged as Kohli’s trump card with the ball. Chahal has now returned to his first IPL franchise RR and his presence has shaped RR’s bowling unit deadlier than ever. In 2 matches, Chahal has already picked up 5 scalps and will be upbeat to give his best against his former franchise RCB.

Virat Kohli

It’s been a while since a big knock came from the king’s bat. In 2 games, Kohli has aggregated 53 runs and has failed to convert starts into fifties. But as wise men say, form is temporary but class is permanent. One good innings and the run machine will once again be at the helm, smashing bowlers all around the park letting his bat do the talking. Against a solid RR bowling attack, RCB will rely on their ex-captain to step up and drub the opposition.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win?

Looking at current form, Rajasthan Royals are favorites to win the match and make it a hat-trick of wins in IPL 15. However, RCB must be way more confident after thumping KKR in the last game in a low-scoring encounter. Former RCB players Chahal and Paddikal will be geared up to face Bangalore in the colors of RR. The Men In Pink must be on cloud 9 after a perfect start to the season and will now need to keep up with the momentum in their upcoming clashes.
