Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Match 19 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Rajasthan Royals take on Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Saturday evening in Jaipur. Rajasthan have won three out of three so far in the tournament with RCB losing three of their four fixtures. Read on as we preview this game which gets underway at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium at 19:30 local time.

After an excellent start to the campaign, supporters of Rajasthan Royals are already dreaming of an IPL title this season. They have had three good wins so far in the competition and they will fancy their chances against a RCB side who have not been at their best.

In spite of their big name top three batters, and Virat Kohli’s form, RCB are operating towards the bottom of the IPL table at the moment. Most analysts believe that their bowling attack is not strong enough and the whole team will need to go up a level from their last game if they are to be competitive in this clash.

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

In spite of Rajasthan Royals coming into the game with a 100% record, there was still one change for them ahead of their last match with South African Nandre Burger coming in. We expect Burger to retain his place with no injury worries for Sanju Samson’s side.

RR Key Players

  • Riyan Parag – It has been an excellent IPL for the young batter so far this season who has been dismissed just once and has hit 181 runs with a strike-rate of 160.17.
  • Sanju Samson – The Rajasthan skipper has outscored his opening batting pair of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler. So far in this campaign he has a top score of 82 not out.
  • Trent Boult – The left-arm pace bowler has a strike-rate of 13.2 in this year’s tournament ahead of this match and took three wickets from four balls against Mumbai Indians.
  • Nandre Burger – It has been a very strong six months for the South African who has been bowling with genuine speed and hostility. He took another two wickets in the last game.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Rovman Powell, Tanush Kotian, Kuldeep Sen, Shubham Dubey, Abid Mushtaq

In the last game we saw spinner Yuzvendra Chahal come out of the side for the bowling innings and Shubham Dubey come into the team. We expect a similar approach in this game although Rovman Powell could be a batting impact option.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals have not had a large victory yet this season but they are now targeting their fourth win in a row in IPL 2024.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (wk) (c), Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Nandre Burger, Yuzvendra Chahal

RCB Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

There will certainly be plenty of questions being asked by the team management at RCB after their very poor start to the campaign. There were important dropped catches in their last game and with skipper Faf du Plessis talking about strong characters stepping up, we could well see the same XI in this fixture.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli – The right-handed opener has already scored over 200 runs in this year’s IPL and he hit his second half-century of the campaign against Lucknow Super Giants in Match 15.
  • Glenn Maxwell – The Australian all-rounder is yet to produce a big innings with the bat but has been dangerous with the ball taking a two-wicket haul in two games.
  • Dinesh Karthik – The vastly experienced right-handed batter continues to excel in the finisher role for RCB with scores of 20, 28 not out and 38 not out in the opening three matches.
  • Yash Dayal – The pace bowler was the most economical of the RCB quick bowlers in the defeat against Lucknow and he has been a consistent performer in the competition.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Suyash Prabhudesai, Mahipal Lomror, Karn Sharma, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Swapnil Singh

Mahipal Lomror came into the side during the batting innings in the last game but there is always the possibility of Dinesh Karthik dropping out during the fielding innings in this match.

RCB Team Form

RCB have picked up one victory so far this tournament but they have also been well beaten in three games.

RCB Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell, Rajat Patidar, Dinesh Khartik, Anuj Rawat (wk), Reece Topley, Mayank Dagar, Mohammed Siraj, Yash Dayal

Who will win Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru T20 Match?

Rajasthan Royals are producing the goods as a team in this 2024 IPL whereas RCB have been very inconsistent and are struggling. As a result, we have Rajasthan Royals as the top side ahead of this game.

🏆 RR vs RCB Prediction

There are not only four points between Rajasthan Royals and RCB already this season but also six places in the table. RCB have underperformed so far but, with confidence levels low, it will be very hard for the side to suddenly produce a match-winning team performance. Rajasthan Royals have been very impressive with bat and ball so we are backing them to get another win in front of their home fans in this match.
