Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore and Steve Smith’s Rajasthan Royals headline the first double-header of IPL 2020. Watch RCB vs RR live!
It will be the first double-header of IPL 2020 on Saturday as Royal Challengers Bangalore face Rajasthan Royals at Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
The afternoon clash sees a true battle royale as Virat Kohli and Steve Smith, two of the best batsmen in the world, lead RCB and RR, respectively. Both teams had contrasting results in the previous game.
RCB beat defending champs Mumbai Indians in a Super Over in their last game, with Virat Kohli hitting the winning runs. Watch live streaming of RCB vs RR.
The form of his bowlers will be a concern for captain Virat Kohli, especially after conceding almost 80 runs in the last four overs. However, young Navdeep Saini stepped up when it mattered in the Super Over and that should please RCB going forward.
Steve Smith’s RR fell to their first defeat of the Indian Premier League season against Kolkata Knight Riders. RR’s batsmen could not fire on the night, but Smith will not be too worried as the KKR game only seemed to be a blip in what has otherwise been a stellar show from his batters.
Both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals have won two and lost one of their opening three matches of IPL 2020. RR is ahead of RCB in the IPL points table because of their Net Run Rate (NRR.)
