It’s going to be a Royal derby in Jaipur as hosts Rajasthan Royals (RR) will take on depleted-looking Royals Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at their home-base Swai Mansingh Stadium. Overall, it’s going to be the 14th match of the Vivo IPL 2019. Sportzwiki here brings you Match Preview, Match Prediction, Weather Forecast, Predicted XI and statistics for the RR vs RCB game.

Interestingly, both teams are battling to open their account after losing out on their initial three games. Indian Premier League 2019 has been a dampener for both the teams.

Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson looked in some control with Rahul Tripathi showing some keen interest to pull up his socks for team’s cause.

On the other side, Ben Stokes recent batting show is a positive sign for the hosts, this time around.

Jos Buttler would be eager to set the tempo early on while taking on off-colour RCB bowling line-up.

All in all, it’s the battle of comebacks.

This time around they are sweating out to work on the loopholes.

During the ongoing IPL 2019, RR has a dream start but their middle-order faltered which cost them a game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). While languishing at the bottom half of the table Rajasthan had lost the plot midway.

RCB as a team has committed blunders in the twelfth edition of the IPL. Virat Kohli’s team has veered off the track by repeating mistakes again and again.

Subsequently, it has not only added pressure on the team but also cast the spell on their talismanic batsmen in the form of Kohli and AB de Villiers.

They’ve been looking beyond options which have also marred their individual efforts from time to time.

IPL 2019: RR vs RCB – Head to head:

Overall Matches – 18; RCB won 9, RCB 8

Venue Sawai Mansingh Stadium – Matches – 6: RR – 3, RCB – 3

Pitch Condition:

The stadium in the heart of the Pink city is relatively small. It has often helped batters to make things difficult for the batsmen.

However, the smart bowling in between has also spoiled their party. All in all, it’s expected to be a high-scoring game while considering the capability of the big guns in both the teams.

Weather Forecast:

While looking at the 8:00 PM game the temperature will hover around 35 degree Celsius during a day which will recede to 32-degree centigrade when the game will kick-off.

The minimum temperature will be around 22-degree Celsius and in Rajasthan, it would actually look beyond that.

The humidity is expected to be around 15 per cent to 20 per cent during the all-important game.

Overall, it’s going to be a complete 40-over contest.

Match Prediction:

While weighing over the team strength, despite lacking fizz, RCB holds an edge over RR. They have their key players who could tear apart any top-class bowling line-up.

Even though Rajasthan has won six out of last six fixtures against Bengaluru-based franchise, the visitors have enough in their tank.

On the other side, the Rajasthan team is banking on their senior batsmen including skipper Ajinkya Rahane.

We could expect it as the closely-fought game with visitors dropping first blood.

The team batting first has the potential to post anything above 170. However, Kohli would be desperate to bat first following a debacle against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
