This is the 17th season of IPL. Royal Challengers Bangalore will play the playoff match for the ninth time. Rajasthan Royals, playing its 15th season, has reached the playoffs for the sixth time. This means that in terms of reaching the playoffs, Virat Kohli's team has the upper hand over Sanju Samson's Rajasthan Royals.

Rajasthan Royals won the title of the first season of IPL. But after that they never reached the final. Royal Challengers have not won a single title yet, but they have reached the final 3 times. This means that even if the RCB team gets stuck in the final, its record in crossing the first round of the playoffs is good.

Talking about the form in IPL 2024, RCB is performing at its best. It has reached the playoffs by winning 6 consecutive matches, which must be creating fear in the minds of Rajasthan Royals. Whereas Rajasthan Royals team last won on 27 April. After this, they had to face defeat in 4 out of 5 matches played. One match was washed out in the rain.

The good thing for RCB is that most of its batsmen are in form these days. Virat Kohli is the highest run scorer in the tournament. Opener Faf du Plessis is supporting him well while Rajat Patidar is handling the middle order. Cameron Green and Dinesh Karthik are also in form.

Rajasthan will miss Butler
Rajasthan Royals will miss Jos Buttler. England's Jos Buttler has left the IPL midway and returned home. Under the captaincy of Butler, the England team will play T20 series with Pakistan from Wednesday. In the absence of Butler, the pressure on Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson has increased.
