RCB vs GT Today Match Prediction, IPL 2023, Who Will Win the Match?
Royal Challengers Bangalore
One of the main reasons why RCB have been able to get a few desired results in IPL 2023 is because their opening combination of Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli has been a strong and potent one.
The duo stitched a stellar opening stand in the previous game and it formed the backbone of the entire innings of RCB.
We predict that RCB will win this game versus Gujarat as they would be more desperate to win the game because of their qualification scenarios.
