RR and RCB go head to head in the IPL 2024 Eliminator on Wednesday, May 22, in Ahmedabad from 7.30 pm IST. This is the second meeting between the two sides this season. RR beat RCB in the first meeting between the two sides in Jaipur. 

However, on current form, the two sides are opposites. After winning just two out of their first 8 games, RCB won six on the trot to make it to the playoffs. 

They defeated CSK in their last league match. CSK needed 201 to qualify and RCB restricted them to 191 /7 after setting a target of 215. In the end, they won the match by 27 runs.

RR's last league match against KKR was abandoned due to rain. That meant they finished with 17 points and finished fourth with an NRR of 0.273. SRH courtesy of their last match win against PBKS finished second on the table and will play the Qualifier 1. 

RR won six out of their first seven games and was the first team to get to 16 points. However, four back-to-back losses in their last five games meant that they got stuck on 16 points and shared a point in their final league game to finish third on the table.

Heading into this game, RR skipper Sanju Samson will be a worried man. He is already missing Jos Buttler and four losses on the trot have just taken the team back on the backfoot. Finding the loopholes and working on them will be the most important concern for the management. RR won the inaugural IPL title in 2008 and made the finals in 2022. RCB, on the other hand, made the finals in 2011 and 2016.
