Rajasthan Royals will take on Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the Eliminator of the IPL 2024 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Following their four losses and one no-result in the last five matches, Rajasthan Royals have found themselves out of the top two of the IPL points table at the key juncture, set to play in the Eliminator. Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bengaluru won their last six matches on the bounce in the IPL 2024, to reach the playoffs in one of the most dramatic circumstances in the tournament’s history.

Pitch Report

The pitches at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad have produced a lot of high totals in the IPL 2024 except for one match where the home team batted poorly to get dismissed for 89. This venue has an average score of 168 in the history of the IPL, which will be very tough for either Rajasthan Royals or Royal Challengers Bengaluru to restrict the opposition batting lineup in a run chase.

Team Analysis

Rajasthan Royals

The Rajasthan Royals batters have struggled in the last couple of matches on difficult batting pitches and top-quality bowling attacks, but Riyan Parag managed to score decent 40s in both innings to ensure they didn’t capitulate. The bowlers lineup for RR gave improved performances as a unit in these two IPL 2024 matches with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja finding some rhythm, while the fast bowlers were quite steady, but still, they were unable to defend the runs.

Sanju Samson (c), Shimron Hetmyer, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Dhruv Jurel, Riyan Parag, Donovan Ferreira, Kunal Rathore, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Sen, Navdeep Saini, Sandeep Sharma, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan, Rovman Powell, Shubham Dubey, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Abid Mushtaq, Nandre Burger, Tanush Kotian, Keshav Maharaj. Players injured/withdrawn: Prasidh Krishna, Adam Zampa, Jos Buttler.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru

Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis have been providing fast starts for Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the powerplay before continuing their innings for longer, while the middle order of Rajat Patidar, Cameron Green, and Dinesh Karthik have been accelerating the rate of scoring as well. The bowling department of RCB has been quite exceptional in the second half of the IPL 2024 with the likes of Mohammed Siraj, Yash Dayal, Lockie Ferguson, and Karn Sharma taking regular wickets.

Match Prediction

match prediction rr vs rcb


Rajasthan Royals have been playing mediocre cricket going into the IPL 2024 playoffs, which is why Royal Challengers Bengaluru, who are peaking at the best possible time in the tournament, will be the favourites to win the Eliminator.
