RCB’s chances of entering the playoffs were buried with its defeat at the hands of DC on Sunday. The team regained its position at the bottom of the points table again and probably will stay there. RCB and RR held the same points two matches ago (6 and 6 points) but with RR’s victory in two straight matches, the team went ahead a notch (to 10 points) while RCB stayed at the bottom by losing one (8 points).
With 10 points RR still has a chance of entering the playoffs if it wins in both the upcoming matches. RR still has two matches to play one against RCB and one against Delhi Capitals. Today’s match against RCB is crucial for the RR team to win since a defeat could bury its chances of entering the playoffs.
Rajasthan Royals already won their first match against RCB so the team will be at some sort of psychological ease when it comes to facing them again. This confidence combined with the cruciality of the match in keeping its chances of entering the playoffs alive, RR might be able to defeat RCB again in Bengaluru.
RCB while is motivated with their previous defeat against RR and with the advantage of home ground, might fight harder than ever to win this match. Today’s match serves as a revenge for the RCB team against RR which can be a great motivator. Both the teams are equally strong and possess the power to win but to know which one has done it, one must watch tonight’s match.
