Today, Rajasthan Royals (RR) will face off against RCB. The victor of this match will advance to Qualifier 2 on May 24 to compete against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). However, the losing team will be eliminated from the tournament.

In the IPL history, Rajasthan and Bengaluru have clashed 31 times, with RR securing 13 wins, RCB with 15 victories, and three matches ending in a draw. Rajasthan's highest score against Bengaluru stands at 217, while RCB's highest total against RR is 200.

The Narendra Modi Stadium, the world's largest cricket venue, boasts expansive boundaries. While the pitch generally favors batsmen, it offers assistance to pacers early on, with spinners also finding some turn as the game progresses.
