Rajasthan Royals (RR) faces Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a battle between the two bottom-placed IPL teams, at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Tuesday. Both RR (10 points) and RCB (8 points) have flattered to deceive thus far, leaving their fans disappointed.

RR is in a better position, but only just. Consecutive wins in the last two matches have injected some life late in the campaign.

RR now also needs to win its two remaining fixtures to stay in playoffs contention.

The visitors, however, will miss the services of all-rounders Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer.

The two key players recently left the squad to join the England team. Archer, in particular, had provided tremendous value with both bat and ball.

In the Kolkata Knight Riders game, Archer smashed an unbeaten 12-ball 27 to help RR seal a three-wicket victory, while his express pace and tight length has troubled opposition batsmen right through the season.
