RCB will face Rajasthan on April 5:

Faf du Plessis and his troops will face Rajasthan Royals in their next challenge on April 5 in the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. 

RCB will be high on confidence after their recent win against KKR. The franchise has several positives to take away from the match. The bowlers were absolutely fantastic to begin the destruction. 

The batters were also great in their execution, especially the middle order. Though the top order misfired, that won’t be an issue for the franchise.

The addition of experienced Dinesh Karthik in the middle order has fetched fruitful results for the team in the two matches played so far. Karthik has played superbly, giving RCB a much required experienced leader in the slog overs.
