22 April 2021 IPL Match Prediction
So far, RCB has played all 3 matches this season at Chennai which is a low scoring pitch. So today on 22 April 2021, the Virat Kohli-led side will play its first match at Wankhede. On the other hand, Rajasthan has been playing at Wankhede since the start of the season. So, Rajasthan Royals have the advantage that they know more about the pitch than RCB. However, the Bangalore franchise is in rhythm after winning 3 consecutive matches while the Rajasthan team is not in very much control. So today, RCB will definitely have an upper hand on men in pink.
The in-form RCB is expected to field the same XI while after a humiliating defeat against CSK, RR may make few changes. As the wicket is batting-friendly today, the role of top-order batsmen will be vital. Chasing a total is not tough at Wankhede, so, after winning the toss a team would like to bowl first here. Spinners rarely shine at Mumbai Cricket stadium, so, it’s worth playing with more pacers.
As far as Dream11 prediction for the 22 April 2021 match is concerned, both wicket-keepers, Sanju Samson and AB de Villiers are must-pick choices. Virat Kohli has a good record in Wankhede and he is worthy to make the captain of the fantasy team today. Glenn Maxwell is the current orange cap holder and fantasy players should pick him to play on the safe side. Excluding spinners and picking two pacers from each side is a wise choice.
