Preview for RCB vs RR GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
In the 16th match of IPL 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Rajasthan Royals.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are on a roll this season. They have made a perfect start to their IPL 2021 campaign and have won all three matches so far. They are the only undefeated side in the league and are clearly, on top of the table. RCB defeated KKR in the first IPL double-header day this season. The duo of AB De Villiers and Glenn Maxwell ran riot with the bat and helped RCB post a mammoth total of 204 runs.
Their visibly improved bowling unit this season had little to no problems defending the target. They kept picking up wickets at regular intervals and KKR never looked likely to go all the way. In the end, Royal Challengers Bangalore won the game by 38 runs.
Rajasthan Royals, meanwhile, have had a tough start to their campaign. In three matches, they have won just once against Delhi Capitals. RR are having to deal with the loss of two key players this season – Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes.
In the last game against CSK, they were second to the three-time IPL champions in almost every department. Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja were excellent with the ball during the middle-overs and denied the RR batsmen any opportunity during the run-chase.
Injuries and unavailability:
Liam Livingstone has flown back to England because of bubble fatigue and RR are yet to name a replacement.

Top Captaincy Picks for RCB vs RR GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
AB De Villiers: AB De Villiers continues to shine season after season in the IPL. He produced yet another top-drawer knock against KKR in the previous match. The former Proteas skipper arrived at the crease late but smashed his way to an unbeaten 76 off just 24 deliveries. He smashed 9 fours and 3 sixes in the match.
Glenn Maxwell: Glenn Maxwell also smashed 9 fours and 3 sixes in that same innings and also registered a score above 75. Maxwell finished with 78 runs to his name from 49 deliveries. He has been among the runs this season, scoring his second half-century this season after a five-year drought.
Sanju Samson: Captaining in his very first IPL match, Sanju scored a breath-taking 119 from just 63 deliveries and almost took his team past the finishing line single-handedly. He has struggled to find his footing since and would want to give a good account of himself in the next match.
Jos Buttler: Jos Buttler failed to make much of an impression in the opening fixture. He got off to a good start, scoring 25 runs in 13 balls but was unable to capitalise on it. However, in the most recent fixture, Buttler finished on 49 runs and was the highest scorer for his side in that game.
Budget picks for RCB vs RR GoodGamer Contest:
Kyle Jamieson: Kyle Jamieson is among the best performers for his side. He is available for just 8.5 credits.

Chetan Sakariya: Chetan Sakariya is very impressive in his wicket taking abilities. He is available for just 8.0 credits.
