Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Rising Pune Supergiants, IPL10 2017 16 April 17th Match preview

The 17th match of IPL10 season, 2017 is between Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rising Pune Supergiants. Royal Challengers Bangalore received a major boost when captain Virat Kohli is back again. The two had more than their share of tense moments during Australia’s Test tour of India, which produced riveting cricket as well as extreme drama and ended with Kohli not too keen to leave on-field matters on the field. Both are strong teams on paper, yet both have won just one of their four encounters in IPL season. As a result, RCB are placed sixth on the table, while RPS are eighth. RCB look like a formidable unit, particularly since Kohli and AB de Villiers have returned after missing the first few games two for de Villiers and three for Kohli. While both the Bangalore mainstays marked their return to action with starring knocks, their team ended up on the losing side on both occasions.

Here are 7 sneak preview of IPL 2017 17th match

#1 IPL10 season 2017, 17th match is between Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rising Pune Supergiants. RCB have been overly dependent upon individuals for season after season and this year there is very little change in that scenario.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle

It is a big boost for RCB to have their skipper back. They also keep an eye on Chris Gayle, who is three runs short of becoming the first cricketer to score 10000 runs in T20 cricket.

Rising Pune Supergiants: Ajinkya Rahane and Rahul Tripathi

Ajinkya Rahane and Rahul Tripathi may be going to be today’s match openers. Rahane’s role should be to anchor the innings and maintain the tempo. The run machine Steven smith and in form batsman Ajinkya rahane are the strong points for RPS.


According to us Royal Challengers Bangalore will hold an edge.

  • Match is in banglore as we see in last match its a slow track, RCB have yazvendra chahal and Samuel Badree who take a hattrick in last match.
  • Virat Kholi is Back again in the form and he hits a half century in last match on other side MS Dhoni is totally out of form. In last two matches against RPS virat scored a century and a half century.
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore batting line up is very strong as they have Chris Gayle, AB De villers and Virat Kholi.
