Royal Challengers Bangalore too are in form and playing some good cricket at the moment. They are at the 3rd position with 4 wins in 6 matches. Top order’s failure is a big concern for them but the middle-order has taken them over the line in almost every match. Dinesh Karthik has been phenomenal in every match. Shahbaz Ahmed too has been very consistent in the middle-overs while there hasn’t been much support from the others with the bat. Faf is failing while Virat Kohli has looked good but he got run-out in two games. RCB needs their batters to take responsibility.
Their bowling has been good. Harshal Patel is their lead pacer and he picks wickets and stops the flow of runs whenever the team requires. Mohamamd Siraj too bowled well in the last game and picked 2 wickets. Wanindu Hasaranga has been very consistent while Josh Hazlewood has been their best bowler in the last two games.
