Eliminator, RR vs RCB Preview: Who will be today’s winner?

Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals will face a tough challenge when they take on the in-form Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 eliminator match. Rajasthan Royals (RR), who were on the top spot earlier in the season, have now slipped to third place due to consecutive defeats and a rain-washed match.

At the same time, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) made a spectacular comeback after a bad start and made a place in the playoffs by registering six consecutive wins.

RR’s performance was quite impressive in the initial stages, but as the tournament progressed, the weaknesses of the team became exposed. The absence of Jos Buttler in batting and lack of consistency in bowling has increased the team’s difficulties. However, RR will now have to rely heavily on Yashasvi Jaiswal, captain Sanju Samson and Ryan Parag.

RR’s bowling line up is strong and the eliminator venue is not known for high scores, so this may prove to be their strength. Experienced bowlers like Chahal, Ashwin and Boult can make the team strong in any situation.

On the other hand, RCB has made a tremendous comeback in the middle of the season. Under the leadership of Faf du Plessis, the team has registered six consecutive wins, including the recent win against Chennai Super Kings. The team’s top batsmen Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis are in excellent form. Rajat Patidar has also played his role well and experienced players like Dinesh Karthik can play an important role in the lower order.

RCB have successfully coped with the absence of Will Jaques and their bowling options have also been impressive. Talents like Siraj, Harshal Patel and Hasaranga can prove challenging for any opposing team.

Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have faced each other 31 times, with RCB winning 15 matches while RR have won 13 matches. The pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium has been balanced throughout the season, which has helped both the batsmen and bowlers. However, as the season progresses, the pitch may provide more support to the spinners.

Expert Opinion & Prediction

Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have already clashed once this season, where RR won by six wickets. In that match, both Virat Kohli and Jos Buttler had scored centuries.

Looking at the current form, Rajasthan Royals look struggling, as they have lost their last four matches. On the contrary, RCB’s form and consecutive winning streak puts them in a strong position. Google’s win predictor indicates a 55% chance of RCB winning the contest. Looking at the current form and strength of the team, Bengaluru seems to have the upper hand.
