Royal Challengers Bangalore will host Rising Pune Supergiants in the match 35 of the Indian Premier League 2016. The latest Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rising Pune Supergiants betting tips for this IPL 2016 encounter can be checked below.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rising Pune Supergiants are pretty much sailing in the same ship at the moment, as both the sides struggle continuously to get some traction.
The men in red last played Kolkata Knight Riders on their home ground, where despite having an overwhelming support, they lost the match by five wickets. Batting first, they once again set a defend-able target of 186 runs, with KL Rahul and Virat Kohli scoring a couple of half centuries. However, they were let down by their bowling attack once again, as Knight Riders chased this target down comfortably in the 20th over.
On the other hand, M.S Dhoni’s side just registered their third win of the season, as they defeated the dangerous looking Delhi Daredevils by seven wickets. They batted second, where they needed 163 runs to win. Ajinkya Rahane and Usman Khawaja did a decent job with the bat, as they took the team to a seven wicket victory.
However, this win still came a bit too late, as they are the sixth placed side in the league with six points. As for Bangalore, they are just beneath Pune, with two matches in hand.
Considering the two teams on paper, Royal Challengers Bangalore have definitely got a superior looking squad, with Kohli and AB de Villiers playing in good form. As for their bowling, addition of Chris Jordan and a couple of Indian names such as Vikas Tokas may prove to be a valuable decision. Supergiants too have revamped their squad, which turned out in their favor. George Bailey and Adam Zampa are yet to play for the team, and it will be intriguing to see if they are given a chance in this crucial match.
