Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore meet at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium for an Indian Premier League encounter on Saturday. Both sides go into the match off the back of defeats, so this match is vital for their hopes of reaching the knockout round of IPL 2020.

Rajasthan Royals Form


The Rajasthan Royals have won just three of their eight matches to date in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League.

In what has been a poor run of form, the Royals have won just one of their last five matches, with their latest defeat coming at the hands of the Delhi Capitals on Wednesday.

The Capitals posted 161/7 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and restricted the Royals to just 148/8 in their 20 overs - winning the match by 13 runs.

After making a fine start to the season with back-to-back half-centuries, Rajasthan Royals' star batsman Steve Smith has struggled for form, scoring single digits in five of his last six innings.
