Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru IPL 2024 Performance Review

The contrasting performance of Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the first three matches of IPL 2024 sets them far apart in the ranking positions of the points table:

Rajasthan Royals (RR): 2nd Position

Rajasthan Royals (RR) along with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have continued as the unbeaten teams of the IPL 2024 tournament so far. However, Sanju Samson’s led side ranks at the 2nd position in the points table with +1.249 Net-Run-Rate(NRR) and needs a win in the forthcoming match by a huge margin to overtake the leading position of KKR (+ 2.518 NRR ).

Specifically, the batting line-up of the Rajasthan Royals has been exceptional with the brilliant performances of Riyan Parag.

On the other side, it is a huge challenge for Yashasvi Jaiswal to score big runs for his team as he scored only 39 runs in 3 innings this season. The 22-year-old batter needs to replicate his exceptional performance similar to the previous season.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB): 8th Position

Apart from securing a 4-wicket win against the Punjab Kings (PBKS), the Royal Challengers Bengaluru have lost 3 matches against these teams:

  • Chennai Super Kings(CSK): Lost by 6 wickets
  • Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR): Lost by 7 wickets
  • Lucknow Super Giants (LSG): Lost by 28 runs

Mainly, the weak bowling line-up of RCB has provided many advantageous moments for the opponent team’s batters.

Also, RCB’s batting lineup has been inconsistent. Apart from Virat Kohli’s opening blast and Dinesh Karthik’s cameo as a finisher, the batting performance has been lacklustre despite the presence of the best power-hitting batsmen namely:

  • Faf du Plessis
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Cameron Green 
  • Mahipal Lomror

As a result, the sluggish middle-order finds it difficult to anchor the innings upon the early dismissal of the opening batters.

Mainly, RCB needs to focus on their batting skills and work hard to strengthen their bowling attack. This is seen as a crucial factor for the Faf du Plessis’s led side to win the remaining matches of the tournament and keep their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs.
