Sanju Samson and Virat Kohli, the stars as we look at IPL 2023 Match 60 RR vs RCB best predicted playing 11 for both teams.
We are left with only 11 matches in IPL 2023, and what a tournament this has been so far. No team has officially qualified for the Playoffs of IPL 2023, and mathematically only Delhi Capitals are out of the Playoffs race. However, KKR and SRH are also all but out of this competition.
With such an equation, the two Royals are also on the brink of a spot in the top 4. While Rajasthan Royals are on 12 points from 12 games, Royal Challengers Bangalore are on 10 points from 11 games. Both are fighting for a spot in the top 4, but given the matches that are pending, only one of them may be able to make it.
Given the competition this year, it seems, 14 points may be a surprise package to qualify for the Playoffs. If at all, it comes to 14 points, RR are the team that will be selected without any second though given their super positive NRR. For RCB to qualify at 14, they would need two big wins in their last two matches.
So, with two royals fighting it out for the final 4 spots, let’s look at the best predicted playing 11 and top fantasy picks for Match 60 of IPL 2023. Before that, let’s look at the key match details and official squad for both teams.

Rajasthan Royals’ Predicted Playing 11
Rajasthan Royals played Joe Root as the spin all-rounder in their last match against KKR. With Boult’s return, they could stick to this strategy and play one of Devdutt Padikkal / Riyan Parag as an impact player while batting, and play KM Asif / Murugan Ashwin as an impact player while bowling.
The selection of Devdutt Padikkal vs Riyan Parag shall completely depend on the match situation. In case, RR lose three wickets before the 10th over, Devudutt Padikkal may be selected, or else Riyan may get a nod ahead. Similarly, if the track is spinning, Ashwin could be preferred above KM Asif.

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Predicted Playing 11
Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently on the backfoot with two back-to-back losses. Anuj Rawat hasn’t fired for them, so they may think of playing Mahipal Lomror at 3 with Shahbaz Ahmed as the spin all-rounder. This way Lomror’s form may be utilized in a better way and Shabaz can impress in the day game.
Meanwhile, with the match against Royals being a day game, expect Karn Sharma to come in the squad in place of Vijaykumar Vyshak. Whereas Harshal Patel and Kedar Jadhav may continue to play the role of impact players. Kedar shall play during RCB’s batting. Whereas Harshal may play during RCB’s bowling.
