Even though the Indian Premier League has only been going for a week, we have already seen some exciting matches. Both the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings, two of the league’s most storied franchises, are currently buried in the standings, much to the dismay of many. Although anything can happen at this point, both teams will need to pick themselves up and return to what appears to be a highly competitive tournament at this point.
The Rajasthan Royals, a team with one of the better records in the league, are on the other side of the standings. They’ll face the Royal Challengers Bangalore in a rivalry that may be in its infancy, but promises to be a major one beginning this season. Both teams have just won their previous matches and will be brimming with confidence going into this one. Spectators are in for quite the treat in this year’s Royal competition.
The match between the two Royals will take place on Tuesday, March 5, 2022, at the historic Wankhede Stadium.
RR vs RCB Team Previews
After two wins in a row, the Pink Panthers would be full of confidence. They became the only team to successfully defend a total twice in this tournament, a feat that has been extremely difficult to accomplish even once.
Power-hitting at the top and excellent bowling in the middle have been the Royals’ secret weapon in both of their victories so far. After two matches gone by, the Royals have scored an above-par total thanks to the likes of Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, and Shimron Hetmyer. Despite the difficult conditions, the bowlers have done an excellent job of keeping the opposition at bay.
Rajasthan Royals are currently at the top of the ladder with a net run rate of 2.1. Both of their victories were by wide margins, which attests to their overwhelming dominance.
