GROUND DETAILS

The average first innings score at the Dubai International Stadium is around the 150-run mark. Earlier in the season, Punjab Kings scored 168 runs in the second innings against the Kolkata Knight Riders, the highest total at the venue in this edition. In the IPL 2021, the pace bowlers have picked 74 wickets in 18 innings at an average of 24.2 compared to 31 wickets at an average of 27.2 by spinners.

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

Glenn Maxwell 

With 447 runs in 12 innings at an average of 40.63 and a strike rate of 146.55, Glenn Maxwell has been one of the standout performers for the Bangalore outfit in this edition of the IPL. Coming in at number four, the right-handed batter has been a vital cog in the batting unit of RCB, especially in the second leg of the tournament as he smashed three consecutive half-centuries and shouldered the bulk of the responsibility of the side. The 32-year old has been handy with the off-spin in the middle overs as he picked up three wickets in his ten overs.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Maxwell could pick 0-1 wicket and score 17-25 runs in this match.

X-FACTORS

Shreyas Iyer

After making a comeback into Capitals' side in the second phase of the competition, Shreyas Iyer has been crucial to the fortunes of the side. With 126 runs in five innings, the right-handed batter has anchored the innings at the top of the order and will be the key player heading into the final league match of the tournament.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Iyer could score 14-20 runs in this match.

Harshal Patel 

The leading wicket-taker of the tournament, Harshal Patel, will be one of the players to watch out for in this high-voltage clash. The right-handed pacer has scalped 29 wickets in 13 matches at an average of 14 in this edition of the competition. The 30-year old has made optimum use of the variations in the middle overs and wreaked havoc by scalping crucial wickers to dent the opposition batting unit. His experience with the ball will be the critical factor for RCB heading into the business end of the tournament

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Patel could pick 2-3 wicket in this match. 

Virat Kohli 

One of the finest batters in the modern generation, Virat Kohli, will be the crucial player for RCB heading into this much-awaited match. With 362 runs in 13 innings, the skipper of the Bangalore side will open the batting along with Devdutt Padikkal and will look to lay a solid foundation at the top of the order. The batting unit has will be reliant on Kohli, Maxwell and AB de Villiers to guide the team over the line in their crunch games.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Kohli could score 16-24 runs in this match.
