The pitch in Dubai is favouring the bowlers in recent matches as the wicket has slowed down considerably considering the start of the season. So spinners will play a vital role in this game and with the venue being one of the biggest in UAE, batsmen will need to try a bit more to get a big score. However, once settled, batsmen are expected to score runs.

The two teams have met 21 times in the Indian Premier League and Rajasthan Royals have the upper hand in the head-to-head record. RR have won this fixture 10 times compared to Bangalore’s nine wins, while two of the games have ended in no result.
