Royal Challengers will face Rajasthan Royals in Indian Premier League (IPL) on this Wednesday. Virat Kohli-led RCB would hope to gain vital two points by defeating Rajasthan Royals in this game. They ended up losing their second-consecutive match to the KXIP this season, last game.
Both teams will want to take back all three points from this fixture. It will be a tough game to say the least, with RR eager to win as well.
Rajasthan Royals won three games and lost four games in this season. They are ranked at seventh position in the IPL points table.
As English all-rounder Ben Stokes returned in the squad, Royals would be more confident about their batting line-up. He will be the most important player for Rajasthan in the upcoming days. They still couldn’t find the right batting combination at the opening. Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag won the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad from the jaws of defeat. Speedsters Jofra Archer and Ankit Rajpoot are bowling well in this season of IPL.
They need to give talented Indian youngster Sanju Samson his original position in the batting line-up. Form of Sanju Samson and Steven Smith is a thing of concern for Rajasthan. They will anticipate a win in this game to get vital two points as the race to a playoff spot in this season of IPL is getting intense.
