Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they take on in-form Rajasthan Royals at the MCA Stadium in Pune in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 on Tuesday. RCB were mauled by nine wickets in their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad as they succumbed to the lowest total by any team in IPL 2022.

RCB were bundled out for a paltry 68 runs as their batting line-up suffered a terrible collapse. Faf du Plessis & Co. will be hoping to keep aside the batting woes from their last game and put on an improved show against Sanju Samson-led RR. RCB’s top-order has been far from consistent this season as barring skipper Du Plessis none of the other two batters – Virat Kohli and Anuj Rawat have managed to make an impact.

While Kohli has bagged a string of low-key scores in his last few outings, Rawat has failed to impress despite being backed consistently by the franchise. RCB’s middle-order has saved the side on a number of occasions already this year with the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik and Shahbaz Ahmed in top-notch form.

However, they were left exposed by SRH in their last game and the Rajasthan Royals will be looking to do the same at the MCA Stadium on Tuesday. Rajasthan Royals are heading into the clash on the back of a 15-run win against Delhi Capitals where their batters once again fired all cylinders with Jos Buttler notching up his second ton of the season.

Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has also continued his fine form with the ball while the likes of Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna have been among the wickets. RR have five wins in seven matches so far this season and will be hoping to continue their winning momentum against RCB on Tuesday.
