The South-African legend is in terrific form and has scored two fifties in three games in this IPL. In the last match, he scored 55 not out against Mumbai Indians.

Archer has been the most lethal bowler in this tournament so far although his numbers don’t show that. He has three wickets in IPL so far and has scored 46 runs in quick time.
Option 1: S Samson
The man everybody is talking about in this IPL, Sanju Samson is in great form and six-hitting ability is noteworthy. He has two big half-centuries in three games is RR’s leading run-scorer this season.
Option 2: J Buttler

RCB vs RR Dream11 Prediction: Who will win the match
Rajasthan Royals are struggling with depth in their batting order. There is little batting beyond Smith, Buttler, and Samson. On the other hand, RCB’s biggest concern is their death bowling. And they are nowhere close to fixing that. RR has a better bowling unit and the outcome of the game will be decided on how RCB batsmen tackle the threat of RR’s bowler. Considering all these aspects, it seems RR will overpower RCB based on their better bowling unit.
