Aakash Chopra, the veteran Indian cricket journalist, feels that AB de Villiers will be the top performer for the Bangalore team in the game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) scheduled on Saturday. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 33rd match of the IPL 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
The two teams will return to the field after confronting a loss in their last game. While Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) had beaten Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 wickets in their last match, Rajasthan Royals surrendered to Delhi Capitals (DC) in their last game by 13 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Aakash Chopra backs AB de Villiers and hopes he will get the chance to perform against RR
Posting on his Twitter, Aakash Chopra said that AB de Villiers will be eager to perform as he didn’t find the opportunity to bat for much time in the last game, and on Saturday he will be out on the field to prove a point.
“AB de Villiers didn’t get the chance to bat in the last game and hence, he will be hungry to go out there and make a mark in today’s game. In this game, I reckon that de Villiers will once again show his aggressive side and smash the Rajasthan bowlers all over the park,” Aakash Chopra said.
Aakash Chopra further included that all have seen AB de Villiers perform at Dubai and he accepts that on Saturday nothing will be different. When the team has lost the last game, at that point de Villiers will have lots to say and prove in the upcoming game of the team. According to Aakash, de Villiers will attempt to recover RCB from their last defeat. If AB plays well in the match, RCB has a possibility of winning the match easily.
As for the case of Rajasthan Royals, it’s a must-win match as they are in the bottom half of the IPL points table. The ongoing IPL 2020 tournament has been a disastrous campaign so far. They are hoping to bounce back in the tournament with a victory over RCB. If RR loses this game, they probably won’t be able to qualify for the playoffs.
