IPL 2023, MATCH 60: RCB vs RR


Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) clash in the 60th Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL) match at Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Sunday, May 14. Rajasthan Royals thrashed Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets in their last game and are currently placed in the fifth position in the points table with 12 points from 12 matches with an impressive net run rate.

Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 98* off 47 helped RR to chase a 150-run target in just 13.1 overs against KKR as they continue to target a top-four spot this season. Rajasthan will boost to third place in the standing if they emerge with two points against RCB on Sunday and will secure playoff qualification this season if they win their remaining two group-stage fixtures.

On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered an embarrassing six-wicket defeat against Mumbai Indians in their last game despite posting a 200-run target. RCB have lost their last two games while defending big totals and are pushed down to the seventh position in the points table with just five wins in eleven games. However, RCB have played a game less than all the top-six teams in the points table and are only two points behind RR. They won the first-leg game against Rajasthan by just seven runs while defending 189 runs this season but considering the current form, RCB enter this fixture as second favorites.
