Rajasthan Royals have played poor cricket in their last four matches of the IPL 2024, but they still find themselves in the playoffs stage of the tournament on the back of their stellar form earlier  in the season. Sanju Samson's side doesn’t come into this game with high confidence. They shared points with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the last game after rain played spoilsport. 

Tom Kohler-Cadmore must fit into the big boots of Jos Buttler and deliver a strong start. Samson will look to lead from the front and build partnerships with other batters. Whereas, the bowling attack will face a tough test in this game, and good performances are expected from the Rajasthan bowlers.

On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bengaluru have a great chance to put one over their upcoming opponents in the Eliminator as they are coming in after winning six straight games in the IPL 2024 group stage. The side expects fireworks from Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis, as this pair has had good starts in recent matches. The middle order has been in good form, and the trio of Rajat Patidar, Cameroon Green, and Dinesh Karthik shall look to build partnerships. 

Bengaluru's bowling still needs a little work but can rely on Yash Dayal to pull off another stunning spell. The side will need a good spell with the new ball from Mohammad Siraj and Glenn Maxwell. The RCB skipper would look to ride this form and take his side to the 2nd Qualifier with a win.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Narendra Modi Stadium is a good one to bat on, where fast bowlers won't have much support. The ground is big however the surface is flat and the outfield is quick making it easier for the batters to score the runs. The side batting first in the game would target 190 plus to feel comfortable on this surface. 

Weather Report

The weather forecast for this game is expected to be warm and humid with clear sky. The temperature is likely to be around 32°C on the match day with 51% humidity and 12 km/h wind speed.
