Head to Head
Royal Challengers Bangalore have won three of their last four matches against the Rajasthan Royals. Earlier this season RCB cruised to a 10 wicket victory.
Rajasthan Royals Form
The Rajasthan Royals are still in the thick of the fight to make playoffs as they currently occupy sixth position on the table. They are level on points with the two sides above them.
The Royals suffered a disappointing defeat in their last match. They went down by seven wickets to the bottom placed side, Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai.
Sanju Samson continued his magnificent form, scoring 82 runs in a 164-run total. It was however not enough as the Sunrisers chased down the score with nine balls to spare.
Rajasthan Royals Injuries & Team News
The Royals have struggled on the batting front and their over reliance on Sanju Samson is costing them results. They don’t have much in reserve, so the likes of Liam Livingstone will need to find some form.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Form
The Royal Challengers Bangalore made a very good start to the IPL but have fallen off the pace in recent times. They are comfortably placed in third with a playoff place looking likely.
Since the IPL return, RCB have lost two and won one match. That victory came in their last outing against the Mumbai Indians in Dubai.
Virat Kohli (51) and Glenn Maxwell (56) took the Royal Challengers to 165 runs in their 20 overs. Harshal Patel then secured the win with a superb bowling effort, taking 4-17 in just over three overs. Mumbai were dismissed for 111 runs as RCB cruised to a 54-run success.

The Royal Challengers have remained reasonably consistent in their selections recently. They will want to secure a playoff birth so I do not foresee many changes.
