Today will be the first doubleheader match of the Indian Premier League 2020 in which Bangalore and Rajasthan will blow the trumpet in Abu Dhabi. Both the teams have played three matches each so far with 2 wins and 1 defeat under their belt. Given that this will be the first match of the day, the player will definitely feel the tough conditions of the ground battling with middle eastern heat and humidity. The second match of the day will be between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders
Talking about Bangalore Royal Challengers, they have won their previous game against the defending champions Mumbai India in the super over. So far, the skipper Virat Kohli couldn’t pull off his best game on the field but AB de Villier showed his class in every match. Shivam Dube also put on some great games from his side in the last match and helped his team reach a massive score of 201.
While on the other side, Steve Smith led Rajasthan Royals began their season with a massive hit but were thrown off the ground by KKR in the second match where they couldn’t seem to adopt the wicket condition of Dubai.
Comparing Bangalore vs Rajasthan face-off, Rajasthan Royals are one step ahead from Royal Challengers Bangalore. In a total of 21 matches between them, Rajasthan have won 10 matches while Bangalore have tasted a win in 8 matches and three of the matches were washed out with no result for either of them.
As this will be the first match of the day, the players will have to face heavy heat and humidity on the ground. Therefore, the focus will be on the ground’s temperature. A perfect occasion to test the fitness level of all the players playing in this match. The pitch surface is usually slow here and given the fact that the match is going to happen in the afternoon, it can be even slower.
