IPL 2022 RR vs RCB: Match preview, head-to-head and sponsors

The two teams have squared off in 25 games in IPL.

In the 13th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Rajasthan Royals (RR) will lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday, April 5 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai at 7:30 PM IST.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will walk into this fixture with their heads up high after clinching the last over low-scoring thriller against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) last week. The bowlers – Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj were right on the money after an underwhelming performance against Punjab Kings (PBKS). The RCB top-order couldn’t survive the swinging conditions in the powerplay. The likes of Dinesh Karthik, Shahbaz Ahmed and Harshal Patel, through their short cameos, turned the game upside down. Faf du Plessis and the team will count on their main batters at the top to capitalise in the powerplay.

Rajasthan Royals have been playing some top-notch cricket since the commencement of the new season. They are one of the only two teams to have won both their games so far. In their previous fixture, they beat the five-time IPL champions, Mumbai Indians (MI) by 23 runs. Jos Butler, Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer have been making some serious contributions with their willow. The spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal along with the swing bowler Trent Boult defines the bowling attack of the franchise. The team coached by Kumar Sangakara and Lasith Malinga seems invincible at the moment and will look to continue the momentum.


In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, RCB have the upper hand. The two teams have squared off in 25 games, Bangalore won 12 fixtures while Rajasthan emerged victorious on 10 occasions.

In the last outing between the two teams, RCB won the game by seven wickets.
