In match 15 of the Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL 2020), Rajasthan Royals (RR) captain Steve Smith won the toss and elected to bat first against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Saturday.
Playing 11 of both the teams:
RCB Playing 11: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli(c), AB de Villiers(w), Shivam Dube, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Adam Zampa, Yuzvendra Chahal.
RR Playing 11: Jos Buttler(w), Steven Smith(c), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Tom Curran, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Mahipal Lomror, Jaydev Unadkat.
Having played its first two games at Sharjah, the smallest of the three venues, Royals got its strategy wrong in the game against Kolkata Knight Riders in Dubai. The Abu Dhabi ground too is on the bigger side and Royals' experience of playing in Dubai will help them take more informed decisions. RCB will also be making its first appearance at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium. With the batsmen unable to hit through the line as consistently as they could do in Sharjah, Royals failed to chase 175 against KKR on Wednesday.

Since Rajasthan has a settled overseas players' combination, one possible change in its playing 11 could be replacing pacer Ankit Rajpoot with Varun Aaron, who is yet to get a game.
