IPL2022, RRvsRCB Preview: Playing XI predictions, Head-to-head, When, where, & how to watch!


Ahmedabad: If you believe in fairy tales, then one is about to written when the two ‘Royals’ teams will fight off for the spot in the Qualifier 2 to get a spot in summit clash of the Indian Premier League. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore can now  dream of their maiden silverware given the momentum they are moving ahead with in the tournament. By winning the last two most crucial games of the season, RCB have gained a confidence that a magic can save their sinking ship at the times when the tides are too high. 

In the last league fixture against Gujarat Titans, Virat Kohli found his mojo back and hit a 73-run knock to power RCB for a win and thus, a place in playoffs. In the Eliminator of the IPL, the Royals in Red almost lost hope when Plessis and Kohli went back to dressing room one after another. Then a miracle happened and an uncapped player, Rajat Patidar, became the first to hit a century in IPL playoffs, that too in just 49 balls. 

When Plessis’s side will walk the field of Narendra Modi Stadium today against Rajasthan Royals, all eyes will be set on top three players of the line-up.

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals are close to ending their trophy drought as their consistency in the tournament has been promising and the stats are also tiled towards in their favor. In past 11 years, the team finishing second in league phase has been the side to reach finals. 


The two Royals have met a total of 26 times and RR marked 11 wins and RCB 13 came out victorius in 13. Since 2018, RR have come out on top in four matches while RCB have won five.
