RCB vs GT Today Match Prediction & Tips

Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Gujarat Titans T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Match 52 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Royal Challengers Bengaluru host Gujarat Titans at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday evening. This is a re-match from Match 45 which RCB easily won by 9 wickets and they come into this game two points behind the Titans. Read on as we preview this fixture which gets underway at 19:30 in Bengaluru on 4th May.

RCB have given themselves a chance of climbing the table and potentially even taking a playoff place with wins over Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans in their last two matches. However, they can afford no slip ups and we expect them to be full of confidence ahead of this clash.

Gujarat Titans were so strong and consistent in their two previous IPL campaigns that it is very strange to see them struggling in eighth place so far in this IPL. After back to back defeats and against a resurgent RCB, this is likely to be a very tough match in Bengaluru.

RCB vs GT Match Toss Prediction

Just over 53% of IPL matches at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium have been won by the team fielding first and with humidity levels set to rise across the game, we predict that both sides will choose to bowl first if they win the toss.

RCB vs GT Pitch Report

This pitch produced scores of 287/3 and 262/7 in the last IPL game at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium so we expect to see another high scoring contest in this match. Pace bowlers may well struggle to keep the runs down but they should also be able to hurry up some of the weaker batters. A par score will be 250+.

Bengaluru Weather Report

There is very little chance of any rain in Bengaluru during this match on Saturday evening. The temperature is forecast to be over 30 degrees with humidity levels climbing up to over 50%.

RCB Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

There was a welcome return to the team for Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell ahead of the last match and with no injuries reported from the team management, we expect RCB to go with the same XI for this clash against Gujarat Titans.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli – The all-format Indian star has had an excellent tournament so far but will be keen to get the Orange Cap back after Ruturaj Gaikwad went past his 500 runs in the campaign earlier this week.
  • Will Jacks – The English batting all-rounder will be full of confidence when he comes to the crease in this game after hitting an unbeaten century from only 41 balls in the last match against Gujarat Titans.
  • Mohammed Siraj – The India international dismissed Shahrukh Khan in the last game as he backed up his impressive figures from the win against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
  • Swapnil Singh – The spinner opened the bowling in the last game and may be called upon to do so again, particularly as he got the wicket of Wriddhiman Saha with his sixth ball.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Mahipal Lomror, Anuj Rawat, Himanshu Sharma, Akashdeep Singh, Vyshak Vijaykumar

Such was RCB’s dominance in the reverse fixture that they did not utilise the impact player rule. We can expect Anuj Rawat to come in as an additional batter if required in this match.

RCB Team Form

RCB are still bottom of the table after a poor start to the tournament but are targeting their third win in a row in this game.

RCB Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Karn Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Yash Dayal, Swapnil Singh

GT Team News

Although there will be pressure on Shubman Gill to announce changes at the toss ahead of this game, it would not be a big surprise if he kept faith with the same XI who posted 200/3 in the last match. Although Mohammad Shami is out for the tournament, the rest of the squad are all available for this game.

GT Key Players

  • Sai Sudharsan – The left-hander has gone past fifty only twice in this IPL 2024 but he has been consistent and made contributions across the competition.
  • Shubman Gill – The right-handed skipper has hit 320 runs so far in the 2024 IPL and a big score from him could be what is needed to give the team a boost.
  • Rashid Khan – The Afghan bowling all-rounder conceded 51 runs from his four overs in the last game and he will be looking to avoid a third successive game without a wicket.
  • Sai Kishore – The young all-rounder is likely to be key in the bowling innings in this game with the quick bowlers expected to be expensive in Bengaluru.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Sandeep Warrier, BR Sharath, Manav Suthar, Darshan Nalkande, Vijay Shankar

Sandeep Warrier came in for the bowling innings in the last game and then only bowled one over. He has had a good season and we expect him to be used again in this match.

Who will win Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Gujarat Titans T20 Match?

Although Gujarat Titans begin this match ahead of RCB in the table, the form of both sides could not be any more different. Full of confidence, we are backing RCB to be the top side.

🏆 RCB vs GT Prediction

Cheered on by plenty of loud and noisy home supporters, we expect RCB to make it three wins on the bounce in this game against Gujarat Titans. The home team have a fantastic batting line-up which is firing at the moment and we predict that they will be too strong once more for a disappointing Gujarat bowling attack. We predict plenty of runs and are backing RCB to come out on top.
