It is time for the final league game of IPL 2023 as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fight it out against Gujarat Titans (GT). If RCB win their game, they will make it to the playoffs unless and until MI win their game by a huge margin. So, they need to make sure that they win this game. For GT, it is an opportunity to rest some big players but they would like to continue their winning momentum as they head to Chennai for the Qualifier 1 after this game. So, two powerful teams go head-to-head and let's see how things pan out.
What is the venue of the RCB vs GT game?
The venue of this RCB vs GT game is M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. It is a high-scoring ground and we can expect a run-feast in the final league game of IPL 2023.
What are the expected changes in the playing XI of RCB?
RCB went with three spin options in the last game against SRH at Hyderabad but looking at the conditions in Chinnaswamy, they can bring in Vijaykumar Vyshak back into XI. Karn Sharma may miss out in this game and rest of the team is likely to remain same.
Expected playing XI of RCB
Faf du Plessis (C), Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Michael Bracewell, Mahipal Lomror, Anuj Rawat (WK), Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, Wayne Parnell, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Mohammed Siraj.
Impact Player - Dinesh Karthik (He will slot into XI when RCB bats)
What are the expected changes in the playing XI of GT?
GT are the table-toppers and they are set to play CSK in Qualifier 1, so they can rest at least Mohammed Shami for this game. Shivam Mavi may play his first game of the season while rest of the team is likely to remain same.
Expected playing XI of GT
Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), B Sai Sudharsan, Hardik Pandya (C), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Dasun Shanaka, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Shivam Mavi, Mohit Sharma.
Impact Player - Yash Dayal (He will slot into XI when GT bowls)
GT have a more well-rounded unit with all bases covered and they might spoil RCB's party at the end of this game.
