RR vs RCB Preview: Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru are set to clash in the mouth-watering IPL 2024 Eliminator on Wednesday, May 22. Rajasthan Royals' recent winless run makes them second-favourites against high-flying Royal Challengers Bengaluru at Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium.

Sanju Samson's Royals dominated the first half of the league stages with impressive all-round form but failed to finish in the top two after no win in their last five matches. Their last league-stage game in Guwahatoi was washed out due to rain as they finished third in the points table with eight wins in 14 matches in the points table.

On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bengaluru pulled off a memorable comeback to make a playoff this season. RCB registered just one win in their first eight matches but are riding on a tremendous form with six consecutive wins.

Bengaluru knocked out the defending champions Chennai Super Kings in a must-win game by 27 runs to finish fourth in the points table. Rajasthan recorded an impressive win over Bengaluru in their last meeting but the current form makes Faf du Plessis' side clear favourites in the Eliminator clash.
