Rajasthan vs Bangalore: The Underdogs Face the Glamor Boys

Ever since their triumph in the inaugural season in 2008, Rajasthan have been cast as the plucky underdogs. Bangalore, by contrast, with a batting line-up consisting of Gayle, Kohli and de Villiers half a decade ago, were deemed the glamor boys. However, they have only 3 defeats in the final (2009, 2011 and 2016) to show for all the hype.

Bangalore currently sit 3rd in the points table, level on points with Chennai. The side has been boosted by the performance of their two big auction picks, Kyle Jamieson and Glenn Maxwell. Harshal Patel leads the wicket-taking charts with 17 wickets, and Yuzvendra Chahal has a point to prove after losing his place in the India squad.

Rajasthan’s hopes of making it to the play-offs for the first time since 2018 are further hit by the withdrawals of the English duo of Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. Jofra Archer remains out of the mix after a year ruined by injury. The onus will be on Sanju Samson with the bat and Chris Morris, their record signing, with the ball to take Rajasthan into the final four.
