RCB vs RR IPL 2024

The Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs heat up today as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) clash in a do-or-die eliminator match. The action begins at 7:45 PM Nepal Time.

RCB arrives on a hot streak, having secured six consecutive victories to reach the eliminator. In contrast, Rajasthan, despite a strong start, has stumbled lately, failing to register a win in their last five games. However, their earlier performance was enough to secure the crucial third position and a shot at the trophy.

Experts favor RCB due to their current form and Rajasthan’s recent struggles. Virat Kohli, RCB’s star opener and the current IPL season’s leading run-scorer with a staggering 708 runs (including 59 fours and 37 sixes), poses a significant threat to Rajasthan’s bowling attack.

Rajasthan’s worries are compounded by the recent dip in the form of their young opener, Yashasvi Jaiswal. Their batting seems vulnerable, making them slight underdogs in today’s encounter.

The stakes are high for both teams. The loser’s IPL journey ends tonight, while the winner advances to the second qualifier, where they’ll face Sunrisers Hyderabad, who were defeated by Kolkata Knight Riders in the first qualifier.

KKR, having secured a convincing 8-wicket win, progresses directly to the finals. The winner of tonight’s eliminator and the second qualifier will then battle it out for the coveted IPL trophy.
