Royal Challengers Bangalore

During the last season in the UAE on the Indian Premier League. RCB assemble a fairly easy win by a 38-run margin. Also, in their last meeting during the India phase of IPL 2021 as well.
Aakash Chopra noted that the quality of spin across. It is both franchises and expects high-quality spin bowling in the match. Chakravarthy and Chahal will lead their respective franchises’ spin attack. They will hope to bounce back. After a rather lean set of outings in the first phase in India.
“The quality of spin is a little high in this fixture because Chakravarthy will be there and so will Yuzvendra Chahal. Batsmen should play these two carefully. Try to play with the spin, if you try to play against the spin, you can be dismissed. The surface of Abu Dhabi is a little up and down at the start so you have to be cautious,” Chopra added.
