Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals are neck to neck in terms of match wins and points earned. RR does have a slight advantage in run rate. But that will not matter when the two teams face each other in Match 15 of the IPL 2020 on Saturday.
RCB would not have been in this position had they not won the crucial match against Mumbai Indians, in which the winner was decided in the Super Over. Rajasthan Royals were flawless until their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders, when they lost by 37 runs. RCB has lost its only match against Kings XI Punjab which features in the bottom section of the fixtures.
RCB and RR have so far met only one common opponent in the form of KXIP. Interestingly, while RCB lost by a huge margin of 97 runs against KXIP, RR had registered a historic win over them after chasing down 223 runs, making it the highest chase ever in the IPL.
The two teams look evenly matched. On one hand, Virat Kohli-led RCB has Finch and de Villiers on their side to lead with the bat, Smith-led RR has Butler and Samson to level the field. It is high time Kohli finds his form, otherwise they will have a tough time against a team as strong as Rajasthan.
They won’t have the kind of luck they had with MI. Meanwhile, RR must be introspecting their previous loss and will certainly fix it before they hit the ground again. Fans can expect an exciting game of cricket coming their way.
