Rajasthan Royals (RR) will take on the in-form Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in what promises to be a cracking contest at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. After KKR’s strong victory in Qualifier 1, the winner of this game will play SRH at Chepauk on Friday.

Incredibly, RCB have gone on a six-game winning streak to seal the greatest comeback in IPL history. They come into this game full of momentum, but the challenge will be to maintain this in the playoffs arena. However, they effectively had six knockout games, so they are prepared.

For RR, the opposite applies. They have not won since April 27, with four straight defeats and a washout. A good start is vital here as RCB have the confidence to carry on the momentum.

Here is a look at some fantasy cricket tips, Dream11 Prediction, Possible Playing XIIs & Ahmedabad Pitch Report for the IPL 2024 Eliminator between RR and RCB.

Riyan Parag531 runs807
Sanju Samson791 runs791
Faf du Plessis421 runs696
Cameron Green228 runs, 9 wickets633

Top batter picks:

  • Virat Kohli: The great batsman is the Orange Cap holder with 708 runs. Also, he is the only RCB or RR player with over 1,000 Dream11 fantasy points this season.
  • Kohli hit a century against RR earlier in IPL 2024. Overall, he has 731 runs vs the Royals at an average of 30.46 and strike rate of 119.44.
  • Rajat Patidar: The batsman has been key to RCB’s revival. He has smashed 52, 50, 2, 55, 52 and 41 in his past six knocks.
  • Sanju Samson: The RR captain is the team’s second-highest run-scorer in IPL 2024 (504) at an average of 56.00 and strike rate of 156.52. He smashed 69 off 42 against RCB earlier this season.

Top all-rounder picks:

  • Riyan Parag: RR’s highest run-scorer this season (531) has scored 77, 27, 47* and 48 in his past four knocks.
  • Cameron Green: The Australian is in form. In his past three games, Green has scored 46, 32* and 38*. He has also picked up two wickets.

Top bowler picks:

  • Trent Boult: The left-arm seamer can play the Mitchell Starc role of Qualifier 1. He has dismissed Faf du Plessis four times in 113 balls in T20s, conceding just 126 runs. He also has overall figures of 1/7 off 10 balls against Rajat Patidar.
  • Yash Dayal: RCB’s death-bowler can be a handy pick. He is their leading wicket-taker (15), with nine of those scalps coming between overs 16 and 20. Also, he has dismissed Jaiswal twice in 12 balls.

Other players to consider for your fantasy cricket team…

  • Faf du Plessis: The RCB captain won player of the match in the last game against CSK. Since the start of 2022, he has scored 238 runs against RR at an average of 39.67 and strike rate of 129.35.
  • Glenn Maxwell: RR have some left-handers in their lineup that Maxwell can target with his offspin, especially Jaiswal. He bowled beautifully last game against CSK (1/25) and can fetch strong fantasy points as a finisher.
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal: The left-hander has had an up and down season. He averages just 17.17 in six games against RCB. However, he can fire at any moment and can be a good selection in your Dream11 team.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal: Ahmedabad’s larger ground dimensions make Chahal a threat. He is RR’s leading wicket-taker in IPL 2024 (17), with four scalps in his past three matches.
  • Mohammed Siraj: The seamer has overall figures of 1/34 off 27 balls against Jaiswal and 3/36 off 31 balls against Samson.
  • Sandeep Sharma: RR’s reliable seamer has dismissed Kohli seven times for 87 runs in 67 balls in T20s.

Narendra Modi Stadium Ahmedabad Pitch Report and Weather

KKR blew SRH away in the Qualifier. So, such a result may prompt the team who wins the toss to bowl first here.

However, the two games before score scores of 231/3 (batting first) and RCB chasing 200 in 16 overs against GT. Expect a good batting surface here.

Another warm and clear evening is forecast in Ahmedabad.
