Rajasthan Royals have suffered two consecutive defeats and have won only four out of 10 matches played in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Royals now need to win every match to qualify for the playing-offs.
Rajasthan Royals will face the other, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), who are third with 6 wins out of 10 matches. The team is looking to strengthen its position even more. The match between the two teams will be played at the Dubai International Stadium from 7.30 pm. This is the 11th match between Bangalore and Rajasthan in the current season.
Bangalore and Rajasthan have played three matches so far in the second phase, in which they lost twice. RCB did not start well in the second leg and the team lost two matches in a row. However, the team won the third match by 54 runs. RCB would not like to change the winning combination against Rajasthan.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals registered a thrilling 2 run win against Punjab Kings in the first match of this phase. But then the team lost its way. RR was defeated by Delhi Capitals by 33 runs and RR by 7 wickets against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Therefore the team can make changes in its playing 11. David Miller can come in place of Liam Livingstone, Shivam Dubey in place of Riyan Parag. At the same time, Jaydev Unadkat can return to the team.
