RCB vs GT: Although GT has sealed a top-two spot, the upcoming game is going to a crucial one in the context of the tournament. A win for RCB will almost seal their playoff spot while a loss would help the likes of PBKS, SRH and KKR retain hopes of qualification. RCB are known to fade a touch towards the end and this season has been tough for them despite being in a good position on the points table. Their stars haven’t been too consistent and Virat Kohli’s form continues to be a concern as he continues to look for a big score.

Date: 19th May 2022
Time: 7:30 PM IST

The weather for the upcoming game is clear with no chance of rain throughout the RCB vs GT fixture.

Both sides are likely to remain unchanged for the upcoming fixture.
Wriddhiman Saha has been in wonderful form this season helping a side that seemed light on batting after the auction. He is scoring runs with ease and has a few high scores as well. He is starting well and giving Gujarat strong starts for their all-rounders to build on and he will be one to watch out for.
A big game is ahead for RCB and it is probably the best time for their biggest superstar to rise to the occasion. Virat Kohli has struggled all season, finding new ways to get out, and despite looking fluent last game, he has missed out on a chance to score big.
RCB vs GT Match Tips
Although RCB have a lot more to play for, their line-up hasn’t been in the best of form and that may make it difficult for them to get past the Gujarat Titans, who are in brilliant touch.
Match Prediction: GT will win the match.
