Rajasthan Royals are set to take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the match 60 of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. RR will play in this contest after steamrolling KKR at the Eden Gardens. On the other hand, RCB got beaten badly against MI at the Wankhede Stadium. As the Royals are going to compete against Royal Challengers at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, the advantage will lie with the hosts on May 14.
The pitches at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium have been known for providing balanced cricket in the IPL over the years and this season has been no different. The average first innings score at this venue in the current edition of the IPL is 158 as of right now, while overall, it is 158 too, coincidentally. Furthermore, as the upcoming fixture between RR and RCB is going to be played in the afternoon heat on May 14, the first innings total might stay in the range of 160-170.
Yashasvi Jaiswal scored the fastest 50 in the history of the IPL against Kolkata Knight Riders, to help Rajasthan Royals attain a much needed win at the Eden Gardens. He was ably supported by the captain Sanju Samson, who put together a quality innings and stayed not out to see his team over the line. Yuzvendra Chahal has been by far the pick of the bowlers for RR in the recent round of matches, while R Ashwin and Trent Boult are performing reasonably well for the side with the ball too.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Joe Root, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, R Ashwin, Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma, KM Asif, Yuzvendra Chahal (Potential Impact Player - Devdutt Padikkal for Yuzvendra Chahal)
Royal Challengers Bangalore
The captain Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell have been the top three run scorers for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2023. But the inconsistency from the batters in the middle order has continued to be a bit of a concern for RCB. As a bowling attack, Royal Challengers have gone off the boil in the last couple of matches, which isn’t a good sign as they have to contend with a formidable RR batting lineup at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in their upcoming encounter.
SportsTiger Playing XI of RCB
Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Anuj Rawat, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Wanindu Hasaranga, Karn Sharma, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj (Potential Impact Substitute - Harshal Patel for Kedar Jadhav)
Rajasthan Royals have played competitive cricket throughout the 2023 season of the IPL, irrespective of the high number of losses suffered by them. In their upcoming fixture against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, they will need to play in the same vein to ensure victory at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on the weekend.
