Rajasthan Royals (RR) will face an upbeat Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB)

Preview:

Rajasthan Royals (RR) square off against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday, May 22, in the Eliminator of IPL 2024.


Both teams have had contrasting fortunes in the closing stages of the league phase. Rajasthan struggled, failing to win any of their matches in May, while Bengaluru won all four of their matches. Faf du Plessis and Co. are on an incredible six-match winning streak and will be confident about their chances of progressing to Qualifier 2. Meanwhile, Rajasthan had a fantastic start to the season, winning eight out of their first nine matches. However, they lost four straight games before their last league encounter was washed out.


Momentum is on RCB's side, but they will have to be wary as Rajasthan has several game-changers in their playing XI. The inaugural champions defeated RCB by six wickets earlier in the season in Jaipur, chasing a 184-run target with five balls to spare.


Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report:

The Narendra Modi Stadium has produced some fine batting surfaces this season, while others have been great for slower bowlers. Both teams wouldn't mind a high-scoring encounter as their squads are well-equipped for such games. The captain who wins the toss could opt to bowl first and assess the conditions. Additionally, teams will keep an eye on Qualifier 1, which takes place on Tuesday, to consider the impact of the dew factor.


RR vs RCB Probable Playing XIs:

  • Rajasthan Royals:

  • Yashasvi Jaiswal

  • Tom Kohler-Cadmore

  • Sanju Samson (C & WK)

  • Riyan Parag

  • Dhruv Jurel

  • Shubham Dubey

  • Rovman Powell

  • Ravichandran Ashwin

  • Trent Boult

  • Avesh Khan

  • Yuzvendra Chahal

  • Impact substitute: Sandeep Sharma

  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru:

  • Virat Kohli

  • Faf du Plessis (C)

  • Rajat Patidar

  • Glenn Maxwell

  • Cameron Green

  • Dinesh Karthik (WK)

  • Mahipal Lomror

  • Karn Sharma

  • Yash Dayal

  • Mohammed Siraj

  • Swapnil Singh

  • Impact substitute: Suyash Prabhudesai


RR vs RCB Probable Best Players of the Match:

  • Probable Best Batter: Virat Kohli It is hard to bet against Virat Kohli with the form he is in. The Delhi batter is the leading run-getter in IPL 2024, having amassed 708 runs from 14 matches at an average of 64.36 and a strike rate of 155.60. If he gets his eye in, Rajasthan bowlers would be in for a rough night.

  • Probable Best Bowler: Yuzvendra Chahal Yuzvendra Chahal had a terrific start to IPL 2024, but his performances have dipped as the season progressed. In 13 matches, Chahal has bagged 17 wickets at an average of 27.59. The experienced campaigner doesn't have a great record against his former side, but there is no doubt about his quality. Chahal could turn up the heat in this high-voltage clash.


Prediction:

Considering their recent form and momentum, Royal Challengers Bengaluru are likely to have the edge over Rajasthan Royals in this eliminator match. RCB's winning streak and their balanced squad make them strong contenders to progress to Qualifier 2.


Prediction: Royal Challengers Bengaluru to win the match.
