Jaipur, May 19 at 04:00 PM IST

It’s not over until it’s over! It’s not over yet for both Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers. The two sides lock horns in the first of the Saturday doubleheader at Sawai Man Singh for the playoffs’ race.

Rajasthan Royals have managed to win 2 out of their three previous fixtures and will fancy their chances at home conditions. However, they will be without their superstar Jos Buttler in the fixture and would want others to step up.
