RCB vs RR Live score: Here’s what Virat Kohli said at the toss
“It was pretty easy to choose, we’d have batted first. This wicket looks dry and it will get drier and might break up first. I didn’t say that to Sanju, but I’m very happy to bat first. We both get to do what we wanted. They informed me last time saying I might have to captain a couple of games, nothing I’m not used to doing. So I’m happy to step in, ready to continue from whatever Faf has been doing. The team has responded well, we are playing with a lot of energy and that showed in the last game. One change for us, Wayne Parnell is out and he will be replaced by David Willey. Faf continues to play as an impact sub.”
RCB vs RR Live score: Here’s what Sanju Samson said at the toss
“We’ll bowl first. Looking at the conditions, our side and their side. So we’d prefer bowling. The dressing room is simple, honest and we need to respect the way we are playing. We are starting with the same XI, might add someone later on.”

RCB vs RR Live score: RCB’s Predicted XI
Here’s what we think Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Playing XI will look like against Rajasthan Royals. Read here.
RCB vs RR Live score: Hasaranga’s good form
RCB’s spin department is spearheaded by Sri Lankan Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva, who looked impressive in his three outings so far.
RCB vs RR Live score: RCB’s strong pace attack
RCB’s bowling attack is in the safe hands of Mohammed Siraj, who has been in sensational form, picking up 12 wickets from six games, including a four for 21 in their last match. Siraj is being ably supported by Wayne Parnell and Harshal Patel, who have picked up eight wickets apiece from four and six games, respectively. But both these bowlers have been a tad expensive and they would look to address this concern in the coming matches.
RCB vs RR Live score: Inconsistent middle order of RCB
Glenn Maxwell, too, has shown his hitting prowess in the tournament but has not been consistent enough. RCB would also be looking up to the likes of veteran Dinesh Karthik, Mahipal Lomlor, Shahbaz Ahmed and Suyash Prabhudessai in the middle-order.
RCB vs RR Live score: Lethal openers of RCB
Just like RR, RCB too boast of one of IPL’s most fearsome opening pairs in Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli. The two are in form this season, handing RCB terrific starts.
RCB vs RR Live score: Impressive Ravichandran Ashwin
In the spin department, Ravichandran Ashwin has impressed with his guile and tricks but Yuzvendra Chahal has been a tad expensive, and needs to lift his game.
RCB vs RR Live score: Strong pace attack of RR
In the experienced Trent Boult and Sandeep Sharma, RR have good opening bowlers and they will have their task cut out against Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli.
RCB vs RR Live score: RR’s weak middle-order
Skipper Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer have scored runs but have not been consistent enough, and the team banks on them to close out games. To make matters worse, Devdutt Padikkal and Riyan Parag have failed to live up to the expectations.
RCB vs RR Live score: RR’s strong opening pair
In Jaiswal and Buttler, RR probably have the most potent opening pair and the duo has been delivering for the side this season. But it is the performance of the middle-order which has become a worry for RR.
RCB vs RR Live score: RR faced 10-run defeat against LSG
RR have plenty to ponder going by their performance in the last game against Lucknow Super Giants at home. Chasing a gettable 155, RR were off to a great start with openers Yashasvi Jaiswal (44) and Jos Buttler (40) stitching 87 runs in 11.3 overs, before the middle-order crumbled to suffer a 10-run defeat.
RCB vs RR Live score: Table toppers RR
RR are currently leading the standings with eight points after four wins and two losses, while RCB are at the fifth spot with three victories and as many defeats.
RCB vs RR Live score: RR’s middle-order need to step up
