The last time when Royal Challengers and Royals had faced each other was during an IPL 2020 league match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Chasing a 178-run target, RCB had sealed the change in the last over primarily due to wicket-keeper batsman AB de Villiers scoring a match-winning 55* (22) with the help of a four and six sixes.
Given the form de Villiers is in this season, it won’t be a surprise if he plays another such innings to power Bangalore to their third consecutive victory against Rajasthan.
