As both teams are competing for a place in the Top 4 in the points table, both teams would be dependent on the performances of their key players.
Rajasthan Royals (RR) will seek revenge against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a Sunday afternoon match at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur in the 2023 Indian Premier League. Rajasthan found their winning form in their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders ( KKR) courtesy of Yashasvi Jaiswal’s explosive century. Although RR has only won two games out of their last 7, the team led by Sanju Samson is one of the most explosive teams in the tournament.
RCB took a brutal beating at the hands of Mumbai Indians (MI) in their last match when the team failed to defend a total of 200 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
As both teams are competing for a place in the Top 4 in the points table, both teams would be dependent on the performances of their key players. Both teams are unlikely to make any changes from their previous Playing XI.

Top 3 matchups to watch out for:
1). Jos Buttler and Mohammed Siraj – Star RR batsman Jos Buttler has seen a lot of ups and downs this IPL season. The Orange Cap starter from last year has found himself in some trouble this season. Buttler has been struggling to hit the bowl in the early stages of his innings against the Pacemakers. Bangalore’s Mohammed Siraj, who brought Buttler down on a duck in their meeting earlier this season in Bengaluru, would once again pose a serious threat to the RR batsman.

2). Virat Kohli and Trent Boult: It’s apparent to the world that Virat Kohli struggles against left-arm closers in the early stages of his innings. Trent Boult’s record against Kohli has remained dominant over the past few years. Faced with his in-swingers, Kohli has found no response or counterattack. Boult will be the key RR in today’s match to get rid of Kohli in the early RCB innings phase.
3). Ravi Ashwin and Gleen Maxwell: Maxwell has been in explosive shape this season. The Aussie has beaten all kinds of bowlers this season, including spinners. He has been playing fearlessly for his team. Getting him back to the arena as soon as possible would be RR’s priority in today’s match. Outline Ravi Ashwin has troubled Maxwell with variations on him in the past.
