The first of two games in an IPL double header on Saturday sees the Royal Challengers Bangalore take on the Rajasthan Royals.

Both teams have started well out in the UAE, with two wins from their opening three games and that has put them in a good position to move forward.

They take on each other this weekend, who will move to three victories for the tournament?

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News & Form

Bangalore come here with two wins from three games and their most recent success was one that involved a thrilling super over. This was a great game to watch, Bangalore and the Mumbai Indians both scored 201 from their 20 overs, any game with over 400 runs in 40 overs is special.

The Royal Challengers then scored 11 from their super over to record a victory over the 2019 champions.

The only many to not fire for the Challengers was Virat Kohli, and we all know that he is sure to hit form at some point in this tournament. Both Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal scored 50 at the top of the innings, AB de Villiers scored one to end the game, he finished not out on 55 from just 24 deliveries.

With this batting line up having the quality it does, if the players are in form, which they seem to be, Bangalore are very tough to beat.

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Form

After two good victories, the Royals suffered their first defeat of the IPL on Wednesday. After two strong performances with the bat, this was the area to let the Royals down when they were beaten by the Kolkata Knight Riders.

54 not out from Tom Curran saved their blushes and put 137 on the board, but that was never going to be enough against a team like the Knight Riders. Just three players ended the innings in double figures, and that needs to improve here.

There is no doubt it can, with talents such as Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson at the top of the order for this team.

Key Man

Aaron Finch is one of the leaders on this Bangalore team and a great 50 in his most recent start put the Challengers on their way to victory. In three games so far he has 101 runs from 83 balls faced, and he is fancied to put up another strong showing in this one.

There are many others in form for the Royal Challengers, but we are choosing Aaron Finch to be the key man on Saturday.

Betting Tip

There is a real chance of this turning into a shootout if both teams hit the ground running with their batting. Seeing 400 runs scored in the game would not be a surprise.

Leading the way in terms of runs will be Aaron Finch we hope, he is our tip to be the star man in this one.

If you want a bet on this game, our tip to win this is the Royal Challengers Bangalore, their batting line up looks in nice touch and that can lead them to victory here.
