Sanju Samson’s side is sitting at the seventh spot with 8 points in 10 games while Virat Kohli’s team has 12 points and are placed third. RR are coming off two consecutive losses; on the other hand, RCB registered an emphatic 54-run win over the Mumbai Indians at this venue three days ago.
The two teams are neck to neck on head-to-head contests with RCB claiming 11 victories and RR 10. Virat Kohli’s outfit, though, has prevailed in the last three matches between the two sides, including a 10-wicket win earlier this season.
At Wankhede, Devdutt Padikkal notched up his maiden IPL ton, and Kohli scored 72, as RCB hauled down RR’s total of 177 inside 17 overs. Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj snapped three-wicket hauls each in the game. Patel, who has taken 23 wickets in 10 matches this season, including a hat-trick against Mumbai, is the current Purple Cap holder.
