This is a very important game for both the teams in terms of their playoff contention. A win would place the two teams in good stead and they are desperate for a win.
While Rajasthan are in the 5th position in the points table, Faf Du Plessis’s Bangalore side are in the 7th position in the points table of the ongoing IPL 2023.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for the RR vs RCB game of IPL 2023 in Jaipur:
1. Virat Kohli (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
The undisputed monarch of Indian cricket, Virat Kohli is the backbone of the RCB team. He is the 2nd highest run-scorer of Bangalore in this edition of the league and has piloted the entire team upfront.
In 11 games, he has mustered 420 runs and has a good average of 42.00. Most of the games, the entire batting department of RCB revolves around their top order batters in the form of Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell.
2. Yuzvendra Chahal (Rajasthan Royals)
Wily leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal became the highest wicket-taker in the history of IPL in the previous game of RR versus Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He can be a good vice-captain choice for your fantasy game in this RR vs RCB game.
In 12 IPL 2023 games, Yuzvendra Chahal has bagged 21 wickets and is also the winner of the Purple Cap award in IPL 2022. He can spin a web and bamboozle the batters with his spin, guile and accuracy. Chahal also has previously played for RCB and is their leading wicket-taker.
3. Jos Buttler (Rajasthan Royals)
Last year’s Orange Cap holder, Jos Buttler is one of the most elegant and swashbuckling batters of the RR team. He opens the batting along with Yashasvi Jaiswal and the duo form a lethal pair.
In 12 games, he has amassed 392 runs and is one of the most prolific run-getters in IPL 2023. His inclusion in your fantasy team as a vice-captain can reap rich benefits and rewards as he is sure to score runs and guide his team to a formidable total or help them chase it down with ease and perfection.
