Pune, May 20: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) face off tonight in Eliminator of the Indian Premier League 2015 (IPL 8). The winner goes on to play Qualifier 2 against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) while the loser exits from the tournament.
Virat Kohli-led RCB start as favourites due to their recent performances but playing for the first time this season in Pune could be tricky. RR, however, have played 1 game and won at the MCA International Stadium.
For RR, Shane Watson hit a century in the last league match and will be hoping to carry that form forward. Ajinkya Rahane and Steve Smith are the other two key batsmen.
