  • RCB will take on RR in Match 15 of the IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

  • The two teams involved in the IPL have got a competitive head to head record.

Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Steve Smith’s Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the first match of Saturday’s doubleheader.


RCB have won two out of their first three games in the IPL 2020. After an embarrassing loss against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), they bounced back in the game against the Mumbai Indians (MI). They held their nerve in the Super Over and just about hopped across the finish line.

The Royals, on the other hand, after two brilliant performances in their first two games, faltered in the last match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi will be yet another new venue for them. They need to adapt and play according to the conditions prevailing there.


Pitch Report:

The pitch at Abu Dhabi is a good one to bat on. There is assistance on offer for the bowlers as well if they hit the right areas.
