Pitch & Weather Report

The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is one of the most high-scoring venues in the Indian Premier League, with an average first-inning score of 180 so far. It's a solid batting pitch but some seam movement is expected during the powerplay in the first innings. Two out of four matches played here this season have been won by teams batting second. There will be dew in the second half which makes the venue more chasable. 

The temperature will be around 36 degrees Celsius. Humidity of about 20 percent is expected but there is no chance of rain.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB have registered only three victories after featuring in ten games but two of those came in the previous two games. Despite scoring runs and holding the orange cap, pundits have criticized Virat's strike rate at the end. But, he is continuously proving his doubters wrong over and over again. He played a brilliant unbeaten 70-run inning against GT in the previous game. Captain Faf du Plessis has not batted well this season which has caused RCB too many problems.

Rajat Patidar scored some valuable runs in the previous games and at a good strike rate. He would like to do the same against GT this time if he gets the opportunity. Will Jacks finally delivered what RCB were expecting from him. In the previous game, he struck a 41-delivery 100 against GT to complete the chase inside only 16 overs.

RCB only have some games left in their hands and will try to end the season on a positive note, at least not at the bottom of the table. The bowling has always been an issue for RCB. Mohammed Siraj has not looked at his best this season and has not given the start with the new ball. But, he has bowled some good spells in recent games. 

Bangalore don't have a good spin bowler in their squad to handle the middle overs. They let go of Chahal and haven't been able to replace him with someone else. Yash Dayal has bowled some sensational spells this season and he is the most important player for the Royals right now. RCB would try to extend their winning streak and double over GT on Saturday.

Gujarat Titans

The 2023 Orange Cap winner is struggling to thrive as a captain and a batter for GT this season. He will be desperate to score big this time as he has scored only 22 in the last two encounters. Wriddhiman Saha has struggled throughout the season and GT have struggled to get off to a good start with the bat. He scored only 4 runs in the last game.

Sai Sudharsan scored runs consistently this season including a 84 in the previous meeting against RCB. Sudharsan has been GT's reliable man at the top of the order. With 418 runs in 10 innings, he's not only their highest run-getter this season, but also third on the Orange Cap list.

However, GT hardly looks like a dangerous team in their middle overs which has been another huge problem for them. David Miller is not having a great season but he is finally scoring some runs here and there.

Omarzai hasn't been good with anything at all. Their all-rounders have failed to score runs at the death which is another reason why GT are a weak batting side. Shahrukh Khan stepped up against RCB in the last game and scored 58 runs in just 30 deliveries but he needs to bring some consistency in his batting.

Rashid Khan has always been a special player for any team he is playing for. The Afghanistan spin wizard's four overs are always crucial as he can change the course of the game. But he is also struggling this season. Sai Kishore is a rising talent but still needs to improve a lot.

Noor Ahmed is another spinner, GT will have to believe in. He conceded 40+ runs in the previous meeting with RCB but GT doesn't have many options left on the bench. Mohit Sharma conceded 41 runs in just 2 overs against RCB in the previous game and he is not looking any good at the moment.
