Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Gujarat Titans (GT) in match number 70 of Indian Premier League on 21st May 2023, at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Royal Challengers Bangalore had a good last three seasons as they progressed to playoffs on all occasions, but never won the title. RCB has suffered many injuries and replacement in this edition. Michael Bracewell has been called to RCB as replacement for Will Jacks. Addition of Bracewell will see three spin-bowling overseas all-rounders in the team along with Maxwell and Hasaranga. They would look to continue the good run with little more caution in this edition.
Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans, on the other hand, had a memorable first tournament as they clinched the title with the help of all-round performances from entire circuit. Pandya showed great signs of maturity in his first season as a captain. They would look to continue the winning momentum going ahead and with the addition of Kane Williamson to the team, the defending champions look even more balanced.
