Rajasthan Royals (RR) square off against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RR) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday, May 22 in the Eliminator of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

Both the teams have fared contrastingly in the closing stages of the league phase. While Rajasthan couldn’t win any of their matches in May, Bengaluru won all four of their matches. Faf du Plessis and Co. are on an incredible six-match winning streak and will be confident about their chances of progressing to Qualifier 2. Meanwhile, Rajasthan had a fantastic start to the season, winning eight out of their first nine matches. However, they went on to lose four straight games before their last league encounter was washed out.

Momentum is on RCB’s side but they will have to be wary as Rajasthan have quite a few game-changers in their playing XI. The inaugural champions defeated RCB by six wickets earlier in the season in Jaipur, chasing an 184-run target with five balls to spare.

Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report:

The Narendra Modi Stadium has produced some fine batting surfaces this season, while others have been great for the slower bowlers. Both teams wouldn’t mind a high-scoring encounter as their squads are well-equipped for such games.  The captain who wins the toss could opt to bowl first and assess the conditions. Also, the teams will keep an eye on Qualifier 1, which takes place on Tuesday, and take into account how much of a role the dew factor plays.

RR vs RCB Probable Best Players of the Match:

Probable Best Batter: Virat Kohli

It is hard to bet against Virat Kohli, with the form that he is in. The Delhi batter is the leading run-getter in IPL 2024, having amassed 708 runs from 14 matches at an average of 64.36 and a strike rate of 155.60. If he gets his eye in, Rajasthan bowlers would be in for a rough night.

Probable Best Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal had a terrific start to IPL 2024 but his performances have alarmingly dipped as the season went along. In 13 matches, Chahal has bagged 17 wickets at an average of 27.59. The experienced campaigner doesn’t have a great record against his former side but there is no doubt about his quality. Chahal could turn up the heat at this in this high-voltage clash.
