Royal Challengers Bangalore will go head-to-head against the Rajasthan Royals at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru in the match 32 of the Indian Premier League. In their previous fixture, RCB were able to defeat PBKS in Mohali in a convincing way, while RR dropped two points against LSG in Jaipur in a last over thriller. Royal Challengers are starting to head in the right direction in this year’s IPL, but their poor record at home will give Royals the hope to achieve victory and stay on top of the IPL points table.
The pitches at M. Chinnaswamy are generally very good for batting with limited margin for error as far as bowlers are concerned. The average first innings score at this venue is 170 in IPL history, while for the current season, it has risen up to 196. With that, expectation of a big total in the upcoming RCB vs RR fixture is definitely not out of the question.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore are heavily reliant on their experienced opening partnership of captain Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli. Their middle order is currently struggling for runs and it’s not a good sign in case one of the openers does get dismissed early. In the bowling department, RCB have Mohammed Siraj leading the pack with consistent performances, while the return of Wanindu Hasaranga has been a pleasant sight for the team management.
SportsTiger Playing XI of RCB
Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis (c), Mahipal Lomror, Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shahbaz Ahmed, Wayne Parnell, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Mohammed Siraj (Potential Impact Substitute - Anuj Rawat for Mohammed Siraj)
Rajasthan Royals have a comparatively more settled batting lineup in comparison to their upcoming opponents. The likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, and Sanju Samson are batting well together to help RR put up big scores on the board consistently. The bowling lineup of Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma, R Ashwin, and Yuzvendra Chahal is very settled for the Royals as they have been restricting oppositions to paltry scores most of the time.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, R Ashwin, Jason Holder, Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal (Potential Impact Player - Riyan Parag for Yuzvendra Chahal)
RCB vs RR Fantasy Team:
Royal Challengers Bangalore's poor home IPL record is one of the main reasons why the opposition teams like to travel and play here. That’s why, a high-quality Rajasthan Royals side would be fancying their chances to win in Bengaluru just like many other teams in the tournament.
