Rajasthan will lock horns with Bangalore in the 43rd match of the Indian T20 League 2021 on Wednesday, September 29. The match will take place in the Dubai International Stadium. Rajasthan is facing a streak of losses in the second leg in UAE and are currently placed at the 6th position. Rajasthan needs to win this match to stay in the competition.
Thinning Rajasthan’s chances of qualifying for the playoffs, Hyderabad acted as a party pooper in the last game played at the Dubai Stadium. Despite Samson's half-century Rajasthan couldn't pull a team game and other players failed to contribute and hence they had to suffer a loss. Talking about Bangalore, they don't have any pressure as of now as they are on the 3rd place on the points table and another win will increase their chances of going into the playoffs.
Bangalore had a good impression in their last match as they scored 165 runs and after that restricted Mumbai on just 111. In the history of the league, both the teams have faced each other 24 times out of which Bangalore has won 11 times and Rajasthan sealed 10 wins. Let's see if Rajasthan evens the score in the upcoming match.
Chances of precipitation is next to zero and the temperature would be around 34 degrees. The weather will also be humid with an expectation of 65 percent.
The pitch at the Dubai International Stadium is flat and does not provide bowlers the advantage of doing variation in their bowling. Hence, it is a batting friendly pitch which would give an edge to the batsmen, but spinners can play a good role in the middle overs when the ball gets old.
