In the match 60 of the Indian Premier League 2023, Rajasthan Royals will play against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. The hosts RR are going into this fixture on the back of a comprehensive win against KKR in Kolkata. Meanwhile, RCB had to endure a thumping at the hands of MI in Mumbai in their last league encounter. Both Royals and Royal Challengers are in the race for IPL playoffs currently, that’s why a win in the upcoming matchup is a must for either of the sides to stay in touch with top teams on the points ladder.
Rajasthan Royals made a startling comeback against Kolkata Knight Riders after suffering one of their toughest losses in their previous home game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Yashasvi Jaiswal was on song with the bat from the beginning as he rollicked himself to the fastest fifty in the history of IPL in just 13 deliveries, while getting optimal support from captain Sanju Samson, who himself returned to form in Kolkata. In the bowling department, Yuzvendra Chahal has hit peak form in the last couple of matches for RR, which he would like to continue for the remainder of the tournament.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have been delivering consistent results with the bat as their captain Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell scoring the bulk of the runs. Some decent contributions in the middle order from the likes of Dinesh Karthik and Mahipal Lomror has been a welcome change for the RCB team management. Meanwhile, as far their bowling goes, Royal Challengers have lost the plot completely in their last couple of matches as the oppositions have chased down big totals quite comfortably against them.
