RCB vs RR: Team previews

Royal Challengers Bengaluru

Led Faf du Plessis, Royal Challengers Bengaluru had a disastrous first half as they lost seven of their first eight group-stage fixtures. However, their comeback was extraordinary, to say the least, as the Red Brigade won six matches on the trot to secure a berth in the playoffs. 

Barring Virat Kohli's incredible consistency, what has gone right for RCB is the improved performance from their middle order batters, particularly Rajat Patidar. The stylish batter has been well supported by Cameron Green and Faf du Plessis, who have been impressive of late. 

Additionally, the likes of Mohammed Siraj and Yash Dayal have chipped in with crucial breakthroughs, with Swapnil Singh gaining popularity for his impressive defensive bowling. 

Therefore, RCB look spirited and composed heading to the eliminator and it won't be surprising if they overpower the Royals in this knockout game.

Contrary to their counterparts, the Royals saw their IPL 2024 campaign turning upside down following their surreal dominance in the first half. 

Considering they were once ranked number one in the points table with eight wins in nine outings, it's shambolic that they will feature in the eliminator instead of making it into the qualifier.

Barring Jos Buttler's absence, the things that have gone wrong for RR is the inconsistency of two key players- Yashasvi Jaiswal and Yuzvendra Chahal. With fitness concerns looming over Dhruv Jurel and Shimron Hetmyer, the Royals look absolutely lacklustre on paper. 

So, if there's anyone who can power them to victory in the Royal-battle, he is Sanju Samson, who has been fantastic as a batter and leader. Also, the responsibility will also lie on Riyan Parag, who has showcased his brilliance as a matured middle-order batter this season.

RCB vs RR: Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report

The surface at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will be slightly on the drier side as compared to the initial games. 

So, the ball might not come onto the bat initially, with hit-the-deck pacers prevailing over the batters for most parts of the game. Also, there might be some assistance for the spinners, who will capitalise on the old ball in the middle overs. 

However, the pitch could play slightly better in the second half, with dew expected to play a crucial role. So, keeping this in mind, the toss-winner might opt to bowl first.
