RR vs RCB Eliminator: Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals (RR) will take on Faf du Plessis-spearheaded Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the eliminator of the TATA IPL 2024. The fixture number two of the IPL 2024 playoffs is set to be held at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on May 22, starting at 7:30 PM IST.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) had opposite journeys to seal their place in the IPL 2024 playoffs. While RR started off on a strong note to push their case forward, RCB’s late outburst aided them in defying all the odds stacked against them to pull off a campaign which is nothing short of a miracle.

RCB were at the bottom of the points table midway through the tournament and were almost on the brink of elimination. However, they resuscitated their run following six wins on the bounce towards the end of the league stages.

Conversely, RR had a fairly easy run till the halfway stage as they clinched 8 wins in nine outings. However, what followed next in their campaign was not desirable at all. RR lost four games in a row while their last fixture resulted in a complete washout.

However, whatever happened during the league stage won’t matter in the playoffs. It’s a fresh contest with a lot at stake for both the IPL sides. RCB is eyeing their first IPL title, while RR is looking to add another feather to their cap following 16 long years.

A lot of how these two sides perform will depend upon the weather conditions and pitch report for that particular day. The fixture is scheduled at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and one of the biggest fears of the teams will be due to the untimely presence of rain.

Now let’s take a look at the RR vs RCB Eliminator Weather Forecast, Rain Chances for the RR vs RCB fixture, and Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report.

Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report

Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium has offered a balanced surface so far in the seventeenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While on some occasions the mark of 200 runs has been breached, some contests have been limited in the vicinity of 160s. Interestingly, the contest between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Delhi Capitals (DC) saw the home side score a mere 89 runs at this very venue.

There will be enough assistance for the bowlers. In fact in the ongoing qualifier 1 as well between KKR and SRH in Ahmedabad, the pacers have extracted decent help off the surface. The batters, too, have got rewards for their efforts.
