Head-to-Head


Rajasthan Royals have won the last two meetings between the sides.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form 


After losing three of their last four matches, the Challengers bounced back with a 24-run win over the Punjab Kings.

The Challengers scored 174/4, Virat Kohli (59) and Faf du Plessis (84) adding 137 for the first wicket.

The Kings were rolled for 150 in 18.2 overs, Mohammed Siraj (4/21) doing the damage to their top order. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore News


Challengers have been scoring big thanks to Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli, but their bowlers have struggled to pin sides down.

Rajasthan Royals Form


After winning three on the bounce, the Royals lost to the Super Giants by 10 runs. 

The Giants scored 154/7 off their 20 overs, with Ravi Ashwin (2/23) the pick of the bowlers.

The Royals made a brilliant start, with Yashasvi Jaiswal (44) and Jos Buttler (40) putting on 87 for the first wicket, but they fell behind the rate and ended on 144/6.

Rajasthan Royals News


The Royals will be looking for their middle-order to add some more runs in the final overs.

Verdict

I am backing Rajasthan Royals to win. I am also backing Jos Buttler to top score for the Royals.

Faf du Plessis is a good bet to top score for Royal Challengers.
