Bangalore, April 30, Tuesday at 08:00 PM IST
Tonight's clash in Vivo IPL 2019 will witness Royal Challengers Bangalore hosting Rajasthan Royals at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. This will be the second time both the teams will meet in this season.
Placed at the bottom, RCB is practically out of the contention. But the side poses a serious threat to the visitors in spoiling their chances of reaching the playoffs. Rajasthan Royals need NRR-boosting victories in both their remaining games to hope things go in favour.
Rajasthan Royals are placed seventh in the ladder with five wins in twelve encounters. And, a defeat here will immediately knock them out of the contention.
One thing that the visitors can rejoice about is that they have beaten RCB in all three previous encounters. However, they's can't go complacent as it's a do or die situation for them. When last time both the teams met in Jaipur, Rajasthan Royals secured a thumping 7 wickets win, courtesy Shreyas Gopal – who dismissed all the three big guns of RCB – V Kohli, AB d Villiers and Shimron Hetmyer.
So, can they repeat the same here in Bangalore? Till then, let's check out the playing 11 and team news.
