They have four games left and need to win all of them to book a play-off berth. Their recent form, however, doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. Rajasthan Royals are coming into the contest on the back of two consecutive defeats. They lost their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 wickets.

Barring Sanju Samson, none of the batsmen made vital contributions to RR’s first innings total. Sanju Samson was brilliant with the bat on a second consecutive occasion. He scored 82 runs off just 57 balls, including 7 fours and 3 sixes. The other prominent names such as Liam Livingstone, Evin Lewis and Lomror went for 4,6 and 29 respectively. Thanks to Samson’s knock, Rajasthan Royals managed to score 164 runs in 20 overs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad didn’t face a lot of problems in chasing down the target. RR bowlers didn’t look effective at all. The likes Chris Morris, Sakariya and Mustafizur have to step up and bowl consistently at good areas if RR want to win the upcoming matches.

Facing them are Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are riding on confidence after winning their last game by 54 runs against MI. Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell’ brilliant knocks helped the team register 165 runs in the first innings. Mumbai Indians, in reply, were bundled out for 111 runs. Yuzvendra Chahal bowled a sensational spell of 3 for 11 in 4 overs, while Harshal Patel picked the first hat-trick of his T20 career.

With that, Royal Challengers Bangalore have moved to the number three position on the table with 6 wins in 10 matches. They would be keen to put on another strong show and boost their chances of reaching the playoffs.
