Jaipur, April 02, Tuesday at 08:00 PM IST
So, the bottom two teams – Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals will be locking horns at Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur on Tuesday evening to secure their maiden win of the tournament. Both the teams have faced three defeats on the trot and would be looking to get off the mark in Jaipur tomorrow. The match will start at 08:00 PM IST.
Owing to better run-rate, Rajasthan Royals are placed seventh in the points table while Royal Challengers Bangalore are sitting at the bottom spot after a massive 118 runs loss against SRH on Sunday evening. The good thing of the clash is that it will mark the maiden win for a team while things will worsen up for the losing side.
This will be the second home fixture for Rajasthan Royals as the side is coming after facing 8 runs drubbing at the hands of Chennai Super Kings on Sunday night. They have failed to capitalize some winning moments which have put them at the receiving end in all three encounters. Playing at the home conditions, RR will be favourites to win tomorrow encounter as they look more balanced than RCB.
On the other hand, RCB is struggling to find the right balance. The batting looks all dependant on the pair of V Kohli and Ab de Villiers while bowlers have bowled clueless so far. J Bairstow (114) and D Warner (100*) completely shattered RCB's bowling attack in the last encounter and didn't take a single bowler seriously. The best pick for RCB in bowling was Y Chahal who finished at 1-44. Not a single bowler managed to bowl with an economy less than 9.
While a couple of changes are for sure in RCB, let's have a look at the team news, playing 11 and grand league teams.
Total – 19
Rajasthan Royals – 09
Royals Challengers Bangalore -08
No result – 02
