RCB vs RR Highlights, IPL 2019 Match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Full cricket score: Match called off due to rain; RCB knocked out


00:51 (IST)

It was a cruel day for cricket fans! Rain delayed the start by over two hours and the five-a-side match was also called off due to more rain. Still we had something to cherish. Shreyas Gopal took a hat-trick including the wickets of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. RCB are now officially out of IPL 2019. RR's playoff chances still hang by a thread.

That's it from our end for tonight. Good night!

IPL 2019, RCB vs RR Today’s Match Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Rajasthan Royals in match 49 of IPL 2019 on Tuesday in what will be a bottom-of-the-table clash. RCB are at the bottom of the points table with eight points from 12 matches while RR are seventh with 10 points in the same number of matches.

The hopes of playoffs qualification hang by a thread for both the sides and Tuesday's clash is an opportunity for either side to spoil their opponent's party.

Both RCB and RR need to win both of their remaining two matches and hope Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals get the better of their opponents to have any chance of qualification.

RR have been severely weakened by the loss of English players leaving for the World Cup camp. Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Jofra Archer have so far left the Rajasthan camp.

But despite the exodus, RR have been able to script a mini-revival since Steve Smith was made captain. They will come into the match on the back of two consecutive wins.

Meanwhile, RCB are also in a good form, having won three out of their last four games. However, they lost their last match against DC by 16 runs.

In the 20 matches played between these two sides, RR have won 10 while two matches have ended with no result.

RR registered a seven-wicket win over RCB in the reverse fixture between these two sides earlier this season.
