Rajasthan Royals will face Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore in a must win game at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Match number 43 of IPL 2021. A loss for RR would almost eliminate them from playoffs scenario like it happened for PBKS yesterday, while RCB on the other hand would look to seal their playoffs spot with a win. Both RR and RCB also have a very poor NRR thus a win by big margin could help their cause in qualifying the for the playoffs easily.
Last time when these two sides faced each other in Mumbai, RCB won convincingly by a 10-wicket margin with the help of Devdutt Padikkal's century. Currently, RCB is placed at the third position while RR occupied the seventh position with 4 wins from 10 games. Sanju Samson as skipper is expected to step up in this game once again and with their good bowling attack will be hoping to stop the thunderous RCB batting lineup.
