Batting:  Sarfaraz Khan 44 (21)

Good end for RCB. Exactly 200 on the board. Its a average score at this venue. After the run-out of ABD, things were not looking good for the home team. But thanks to the late hitting of young Sarfaraz Khan RCB touches the magical figure of 200. Though The visitors still have a chance of winning the game as the conditions are batting friendly and the ground is small. However, Mitchell Starc will continue to be a threat with the new ball.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 match between the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) from M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. I am Sandipan Banerjee and I will be bringing you all the updates of the match here. READ: RCB vs RR Preview, Rejuvenated hosts take on the table toppers

The hosts, rejuvenated from their recent victories will be confident after ahead of this game. The match is being played a week after RCB beat RR at Ahmedabad by a comprehensive margin of nine wickets. Here is a game between two sides with contrasting fortunes. On the one hand, RCB have won their last two games on the ascent, on the other, RR have lost their previous two matches and are trying to regain the winning touch. READ: Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Shane Warne and other former IPL players who later turned support staff

The interesting thing is that RCB are yet to win a game at home in this season of IPL. However, they have managed to win all their away matches. They would want to correct this anomaly with a victory against RR, over whom they may have a psychological advantage after the victory in the previous encounter at Ahmedabad. READ: Best bowling figures by uncapped Indian players in IPL

RR had only one bad game, which was the loss against RCB. The defeat to Kings XI Punjab came in a Super Over contest, so one may not read too much in to it. The defeat to RCB could have been a slip-up, that a team may go through during a tournament. There is no need to push the panic button here. They missed a game against KKR as it was rained out and they have to regain the momentum on the field. READ: Virat Kohli is a very intense person: Harshal Patel
