Bangalore, April 30, Tuesday at 08:00 PM IST
The Vivo IPL 2019 is in its final week of the group stage and it's time for the clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
While Royal Challengers Bangalore got knocked out of the tournament by Delhi Capitals in the last game, Rajasthan Royals are in a state where they must win both of their remaining games in order to qualify for the playoffs. Placed seventh, Royals have registered five wins in twelve encounters and need to win their remaining games with great margins to bring the net run rate in consideration.
When both the sides met previously in Jaipur, the hosts turned out to be the winner by 7 wickets. It was also their maiden win of the tournament after facing defeats in starting three games. So, can they make it a double over RCB and keep their campaign alive?
The match will start at 08:00 PM IST.
