Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) will host the Gujarat Titans (GT) in the 52nd game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The RCB vs GT clash will take place on May 04, 2024, at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.

The hosts began the 17th season of the competition with a defeat against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK), before tasting a victory over the Punjab Kings. From thereon, it took them exactly a month before gaining their second win in the IPL 2024.

In between, RCB lost six consecutive games, most of which were by a huge margin. The scenario of their two games against Kolkata Knight Riders was different from each other. The home game saw them getting blown away for a comfortable seven-wicket victory for the visitors, who in the reverse leg held their nerve for a one-run win.

However, they had a very good comeback in this tournament with two back-to-back wins, one of which was the reverse fixture of the RCB vs GT clash. Virat Kohli stayed unbeaten 70 runs, but Will Jacks stole the limelight with his 41-ball 100*-run knock.

Gujarat Titans have been going through a very inconsistent tournament. Going into this RCB vs GT clash in their 11th game of the season, the 2022 champions are yet to win two successive games. After most of their losses, they have tasted two consecutive defeats, which never allowed them to get the momentum in this tournament.

RCB, who are at the bottom of the table, can’t afford a single defeat in the IPL 2024, and still may not be able to quality. While eighth-ranked Gujarat could think of an unbeaten journey from this RCB vs GT encounter, to have a chance in this IPL 2024.
