Indian Premier League - IPL

The South Indian Derby of IPL is today. Match 35 of IPL 2021 is between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. RCB faced a defeat in previous match whereas Dhoni’s Chennai is coming from a victory in previous game.

Match will be played in Sharjah cricket ground which is the first match of IPL 2021 phase 2 in this ground. In this article we will tell you about the 5 players who can perform well in today’s game.

5. Glenn Maxwell

As today’s match is in Sharjah it is expected to be a high scoring match because of the small boundaries and pitch and in that case power hitters like Glen Maxwell becomes dangerous. Maxwell was bought by RCB in this season. He performed well in phase 1 and it is expected from him to deliver in today’s game.

4. Virat Kohli

Considering today’s game to be a batsmen game because of the history of this ground. It will be wonderful opportunity for RCB skipper to score big. He is playing as an opener too which gives him the advantage to score big and he too was in a opportunity to grab this kind of things. It can be a big night for the RCB captain.

3. Ravindra Jadeja

No one can forget the previous game between these too and reason for that was sir Jadeja. Jadeja’s performance was one in a million performance in that match. He was everywhere in bowling, batting and fielding too. He took wickets of AB De Villiers and Glenn Maxwell both. Also run out to Dan Christian. But that match will be remembered for his unbelievable hitting in last over to Harshal Patel. In today’s game to he is expected to do something big.

2. Ruturaj Gaikwad

Ruturaj Gaikwad is in best phase of his cricketing career. He is in good form and showed his class to the world. He opens for CSK with Faf Du Plessis and they both are unstoppable many a times. In previous game of this season against RCB he and Faf were the players who scored some good amount of runs but taking his current form is important in previous game if CSK he single handedly took CSK to victory. After CSK were 4 down in power play he took them to a respectable score of 156 with 88 of him. Continuing his form he can score big today.

1. AB De Villiers

I am taking a risk to put AB de Villiers at No.1 in this list but it’s like a confidence which he gives to his fans of him performing well. He had a terrible start of phase 2 he was bowled by Russell in his very first ball of the innings.

But he had an amazing record in Sharjah. I am considering it a big game where batsmen will dominate the gane and putting AB De Villiers out of this is a risky thing. We all know what he is capable of and what he can do for his team. Same we will expect from him in today’s match.
