Batting first, RR amassed a respectable total of 175/8 thanks to Jos Buttler’s 52 off 36, R Ashwin’s 30, and Shimron Hetmyer’s 30, respectively.

Rajasthan Royals will be entering the match off of a narrow seven-run loss to RCB in their last encounter. They presently hold the third spot on the points table with four victories out of seven games, which is due to their higher NRR than other teams. As most players chipped in with significant contributions in various circumstances, RR has also been working well as a team.
