RR vs RCB Match Prediction: Who Will Triumph In Today's IPL 2024 Eliminator

On Wednesday, May 22, the Rajasthan Royals (RR) will face off against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the Eliminator match of IPL 2024 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The two teams have experienced contrasting fortunes towards the end of the league phase. Rajasthan Royals have struggled in May, failing to secure a single victory, whereas Royal Challengers Bengaluru have been on a roll, winning all four of their matches this month. Faf du Plessis and his team are riding a remarkable six-match winning streak, giving them strong momentum and confidence as they aim to advance to Qualifier 2 . In contrast, Rajasthan Royals started the season on a high note, winning eight out of their first nine games, but their performance has dipped with four consecutive losses followed by a washed-out game.

Despite the momentum favoring RCB, Rajasthan Royals possess several game-changers who could turn the tide. Notably, the inaugural IPL champions defeated RCB by six wickets earlier in the season in Jaipur, successfully chasing down a target of 184 with five balls to spare.
