RCB Playing XI: After going down in their opening game against Punjab Kings by 5 wickets, Royal Challengers Bangalore sneaked past a win against Kolkata Knight Riders by just 3 wickets and now they face a stiff challenge in the form of the table-toppers Rajasthan Royals.

That being said, RCB still looks like a formidable unit and can possess a good threat to the table-toppers. How will they shape up to take on RR? Let’s take a look.
