There is too much inconsistency with Bangalore and their form, purely because they are over-reliant on their batting top-order. Rajasthan are much better in that aspect and should fancy their chances. My prediction is in the sixes market though with Rajasthan tipped to score the most 6s of the match.
- Royal Challengers Bangalore have conceded the most 6s of the match in their last 2 matches in 2023 (IPL)
- Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost 3 of their last 4 completed matches at this venue against Rajasthan Royals (IPL)
- Rajasthan Royals have hit the most 6s in their last 4 matches against Royal Challengers Bangalore (IPL)
- Rajasthan Royals have hit the most 6s in 5 of their last 6 matches in 2023 (IPL)
- Jos Buttler has scores of 106 & 70 in 2 of his last 3 matches against Royals Challengers Bangalore (IPL)
Head to Head
In the 25 completed IPL matches between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals, there have been 13 wins for Bangalore and 12 wins for Rajasthan. At this venue, the record is 4-2 in favour of the Royals.
Last season the sides played three times with Bangalore winning the first by four wickets, Rajasthan winning the next two by 29 runs and seven wickets.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Form
Royal Challengers Bangalore have six points from six matches with three wins and losses each. They have won two of their last three matches including a 24-run win in Mohali last time out.
Captain Faf du Plessis (343) and Virat Kohli (279) have been their batting mainstays while Mohammed Siraj (12 wickets) has been on fire with the ball.
The worry for Bangalore is that beyond Faf, Virat and Glenn Maxwell there’s no one firing with the bat. Spin remains an issue with the ball.

Josh Hazlewood remains in rehabilitation as he builds up fitness for his first game this season. Faf du Plessis played as an impact player in the previous match and could be checked for fitness prior to toss.
Rajasthan Royals Form
Rajasthan Royals are top of the table with eight points from six matches, although Lucknow could overtake them with a win on Saturday. The Royals have won three of their last four, although losing their latest to Lucknow.
Four batters have scored at least 150 for Rajasthan led by Jos Buttler (244). With the ball, Yuzvendra Chahal (11 wickets) has been leading their pack.
The inconsistent form of their middle-order remains a worry for the team especially with the middle overs not proving to be their best.
Rajasthan Royals Team News
There aren’t any fitness worries for Rajasthan with the prime concern being the form of Riyan Parag. Joe Root remains available but that would mean a whole lot of changes elsewhere to accommodate him in the foreigner quota.

What time does Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals IPL start?
This Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals IPL match is being played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru at 3:30pm IST on Sunday, April 23.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have been over-reliant on their top-three for runs and Siraj for wickets. With very little support around them, any team that plays out Siraj and keeps Faf and Virat quiet are able to go past them. Our pick in this match is in the sixes count. I am backing Rajasthan Royals to hit the most 6s of the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
