- RCB have a 13-10 head-to-head lead over Rajasthan Royals.
- The Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently in fifth place on the points table this season, while the Rajasthan Royals are in third place.
- This is the second match between these two teams this season where RCB defeated RR in the previous match.
The Rajasthan Royals will face Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MCA Stadium in Pune in their next match. After being all out for just 68 against SRH in their previous game, the Faf du Plessis side had a completely off game, and there wasn’t much they could have done with the score. Anuj Rawat has been inconsistent at the top of the order and they may be tempted to bring in Mahipal Lamror who isn’t a bad alternative while pushing Virat Kohli up the order.
The Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have won both of their past two games, and Jos Buttler has been a complete masterclass at the top of the order. In the last two games, the bowling appeared to have leaked runs, but a lot would go down into the pitches, which had been a belter in the previous two games for the side. Navdeep Saini or Kuldeep Sen might be considered as replacements for Obed McCoy.
