The battle between the Royals is set to treat cricket fans with an exciting clash in the Indian Premier League. Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Rajasthan Royals on April 26th at MCA Stadium in Pune. Bangalore's pace attack will have an uphill task against Jos Buttler's juggernaut, while Virat Kohli will look to add some runs on board to end the longstanding debate over his poor form in the tournament.

Faf Du Plessis will hope for some impressive performance from his batters as Rajasthan Royals are coming off back to back victories in their last two games. Bangalore had a forgettable outing against Hyderabad and will take to undo that against Rajasthan. While the focus would be on Kohli, RCB also has power-hitters in captain Faf Du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik and Shahbaz Ahmed, who can be destructive on their day, and if they fire in unison, the RR attack would have a tough time.

Du Plessis has remained inconsistent in the league but has prolific experience. Dinesh Karthik has emerged as a standout finisher for his side, and RCB will hope for some cracking performance from his bat. Harshal Patel, Md. Siraj, Josh Hazlewood and Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga will have a considerable responsibility to outplay Buttler, Devdutt Padikal, Sanju Samson and Shimron Heymyer.

Regarding Rajasthan's bowling, Prasidh Krishna and the spin duo Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal can also pose problems for the RCB batters. With 18 wickets so far, Chahal can turn the game in his side's favour at any moment. There is little doubt that both the teams have some high profile players in their arsenal, and the clash between both will be one cracking match to watch.
