Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) will play each other in the eliminator match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Narendra Modi Stadium on 21 May. This match is crucial, as both teams vie for a spot in the finals scheduled for May 26.

Rajasthan Royals started the season strong, demonstrating formidable form, but their momentum waned towards the end, culminating in four consecutive losses. 

Their previous match was unfortunately abandoned due to rain, adding further pressure on the team to secure a victory in this crucial eliminator.

RCB, on the other hand, enters this match with confidence, having won their last six fixtures, including a notable victory against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their final group stage encounter. Their consistent performance makes them a formidable opponent for the Royals.

In terms of team composition, RR might consider some strategic changes. Captain Sanju Samson could potentially bring in Shimron Hetmyer, provided he is fit, to replace Rovman Powell in the playing XI. However, Hetmyer's fitness remains uncertain, which could influence this decision.

On the bowling front, RR intoduced left-arm pacer Nandre Burger in last match to bolster their attack, joining forces with Avesh Khan and Sandeep Sharma. Leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is expected to feature as an impact player, replacing Tom Kohler-Cadmore when necessary.

The rest of the team appears solid, with no major changes anticipated.
