IPL 2017, RPS vs RCB Prediction Who Will Win: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) face each other for the second time in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 today at the tomorrow at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. After an impressive performance, RPS lost their match against Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game but now they will look to win this match against struggling RCB.

Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) suffered a halt to their confidence as they were thrashed by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their last match as Kolkata made a mockery of their 180 plus total. Their bowling and fielding are still the major issues which are preventing them from putting in consistent performances.
But, they will still get confidence from their last two matches as they won both of them in last-over thrillers courtesy Unadkat and the ever so cool MS Dhoni. They are currently in 4th position in the points table having won 4 and lost 4. This will be a very important game for them as winning this will put them in a good position for the qualification to the play-offs.
On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are in heaps of trouble and are almost out of the tournament already as their famous star studded batting line up has failed miserably in their last two outings. And their already average bowling is looking even weaker as there seems to be no confidence.
Even the ever energetic and aggressive Captain Virat Kohli looked pretty dull on the field in their previous match. They are currently placed at 7th in the points table with just 5 points from 9 matches. Still, this will be a very important game for them as we all know that cricket is a funny game and T20 is an even funnier format and one never knows what will happen if they win all their remaining games. Remember last season?
The last time these two teams met was at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on 16th April. Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) won that game quite comfortably by 27 runs. Pune put up 161 on the board with good contributions from Rahane, Tripathi, Smith, Dhoni and Tiwary. In reply, RCB’s batting line-up again failed as nobody got going and Ben Stokes and Jaydev Unadkat bowled brilliant spells to help their side defend an average total.
