RR vs RCB: IPL 2021: Preview
Rajasthan Royals suffered a surprising defeat in the last game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad and this has pushed them down the points table. Sanju Sampson has been the lone warrior for Rajasthan Royals and other batsmen have been inconsistent. The side wasted a good start in the last game & fell short by at least 20 runs. Rajasthan Royals must win this game to get into the playoffs.
Royal Challengers come here with a massive win against defending champions Mumbai Indians. It was a strong statement by Virat Kohli’s side in their last game against the Mumbai Indians. The side which had made a poor start in UAE put that behind with their 54-run win in the game and have taken a step towards playoffs. Kohli who is leading from the front would like to maintain this momentum

RR vs RCB: IPL 2021: Pitch Report
Dubai International Cricket Stadium has a large outfield, but it is lightning quick. The surface here is flat, and this allows batsmen to play on the rise and score quick runs. It is a very challenging surface for the fast bowlers with little assistance for them. Spinners have enjoyed a good record here in the past.

RR vs RCB: IPL 2021: Match Prediction
There would be a lot of pressure on the Rajasthan Royals to win this game. A loss here would nearly end all their hopes of making it to the playoffs. Their batting has been inconsistent, and this is something the side would have to work on here. Royal Challengers Bangalore on the other hand come here with a big win and this would add to their confidence and put them slightly ahead of Rajasthan Royals in this game. We expect Royal Challengers Bangalore to win the game.
