Match Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Rajasthan Royals at their home ground at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium.

RCB and RR are two teams that have been alternating at the bottom of the points table. While RCB held the spot for the longest time, Rajasthan also touched the bottom and bounced back after their win against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Although it seems highly unlikely that they would make it to the playoffs, they would be desperate to have some wins under their belt. After their horrid run, both Rajasthan and Bangalore are playing their best cricket of the season so far.

While Ajinkya Rahane finds himself liberated after being relieved of the captaincy and has started playing some free flowing shots, the pieces have begun to come together for RCB as well as both their bowlers and batters have started taking a bit more responsibility in the last few matches.

Royals have also benefited from the inclusion of Liam Livingstone who scored a breezy 40-odd in the last game. Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Riyan Parag would be their crucial batters, while Shreyas Gopal, Varun Aaron and Oshane Thomas would lead their bowling attack.

As always, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers would be the linchpins of RCB's batting line up, with Yuzvendra Chahal shouldering the responsibility of the lead bowler.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Rajasthan Royals- Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, Liam Livingstone, Ashton Turner, Riyan Parag, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Varun Aaron, Oshane Thomas

Royal Challengers Bangalore- Parthiv Patel, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Marcus Stoinis, Akshdeep Nath, Moeen Ali, Washington Sundar, Tim Southee, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
