Rajasthan Royals have made it to the playoffs after 2018 and they are on the cusp of entering the finals for the second time since the inaugural season in 2008. A win here for the Royals will take them to the final slated on 29th May at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. However, if they lose they will get another chance of making it to the finals as they might face the winner of Qualifier 2 in the Eliminator, but only if they lose Qualifier 1 against Gujarat Titans.

The Royals are looking balanced and strong. Rajasthan Royals are in a happy space after defeating Chennai Super Kings in the last match by 5 wickets. Ravichandran Ashwin’s all-round brilliance helped Royals secure a comprehensive victory over CSK and in the process ensured a second spot finish in the league stage.

The Royals are brewing with confidence and they won’t be looking to tinker much with the winning combination. Shimron Hetmyer is back for RR which has definitely bolstered their lower middle order. All in all, Rajasthan Royals do look like a settled unit.
