Today, RCB and RR are all set to face each other in the 39th match of PL 2022 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium (MCA), Pune. After a tremendous defeat by SRH in the previous match, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team seems to be in no mood to let the Rajasthan Royals take the match in their pocket. The match will commence from 7:30 pm onwards and this is the second time when both the teams will be facing each other in this season. In the previous match, the Bangalore team defeated RR by 4 wickets by pursuing the target of 170 runs.
RCB faced an enormous defeat in their previous match against Hyderabad and got bowled out on 68 runs. Whereas, Rajasthan Royals had a rigid competition against DC. Jos Buttler exhibited a fiery knock of 46 in 19 balls and a maiden over by Prasidh Krishna brought RR closer to the victory. Currently, Rajasthan is in the third place on the points table, followed by RCB that has dropped down to 4th position after the last challenge. RR is completely geared up with their ace players with huge expectations from batter Jos Buttler and spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
Both the teams have faced each other in previous seasons of IPL and it has always been a close encounter. However, RCB has appeared to be winner against RR in the last 5 matches but the current form of RR has purveyed outstanding maneouvers in this season.
