RR vs RCB: In the Indian Premier League, today the first match will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai at 3:30 pm. For the second time this season, these two teams will clash. Earlier, when these two teams came face to face, RCB had won. In such a situation, Rajasthan will enter the field with the intention of avenging the previous defeat. However, Royal Challengers Bangalore, who have won five out of eight matches so far this season, will remain favorites in this match. At the same time, there will be pressure on Rajasthan Royals to perform well.
With the arrival of star all-rounder Ben Stokes, the Rajasthan Royals team looks very balanced. But captain Steve Smith should feed Stokes in the middle order and give Robin Uthappa a chance to start the innings with Jose Butler. With this, the middle order of Rajasthan will also be strengthened.
