The Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Rising Pune Supegaints on the sixth and eighth positions respectively on the IPL 2017 points table will fight each other to increase their position on Sunday. Both teams have won one of their four matches . In such a case, the aim of both of them to return to winning road with this match . Last year, RPS had started with a win against the Mumbai Indians, after which they had lost four consecutive defeats . Obviously they would not like to do anything like this season because in the last three matches are defeated . On the other hand, RCB, which was seen in the top in the previous season, is not worried even after the initial defeat, because Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers have returned to the team and they look like a win.
RCB’s biggest concern is that they are not able to score big while performing well with the bat as expected . If they leave the first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, then their batsmen have seen flop at every chance and have scored 157, 148 and 142. Because of which their bowlers got under pressure and had to face defeat. Although Kohli has returned to the team but RCB could not replicate Rahul in team . Rahul was the third highest scorer batsman in 2016. Mandeep Singh had done well in the domestic season this year but on behalf of RCB, he has not been able to do what expected. Jadhav has been seen in good form and the team would like to perform consistently well. RCB, whose biggest strength is batting, is needed by Kohli and De Villiers.

On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane would like to use small boundary and would like to play the same innings again after scoring 60 against Mumbai Indians in 34 balls. In the last three innings, he was out with a score of 19, 10 and 0 which is not right. Yes, he can definitely gain his belief that when he played against RCB last time he scored 74 runs in 48 balls. MS Dhoni is constantly failing and his highest score so far is 12, which is the biggest concern for RPS. At the same time, Ben Stokes, the most expensive Ben could not show off. Yes, Captain Smith has done well with bat.
Bowling is the weakest link to the supergaints. In previous matches, he has made quite a lot of changes in this department. Even Ashok Dinda, who had to lead his fast bowling attack spent 119 runs in 10 overs. Deepak Chahar, Rahul Chahar and Adam Junka have been taken in and out in view of the situation. Lockie Ferguson, Shardul Thakur and Ankit Sharma were seen in the team last week. Ben Stokes has taken only one wicket in four matches, which is a big problem . Rahul Tripathi was seen in good batting against Lions. In such a situation, it would be interesting to see if he is included in the final eleven ahead of Mayank Agarwal. At the same time, Faf du Plessis will be selected to bat or Ferguson will be selected to bat. This is also going to be a thing to watch. Apart from this, no decision will be taken on MS Dhoni. If such a thing happens, then you may get to see the organism.
