RR's batting line-up has found a new hope in Ben Stokeswho went on to score a quickfire 41 runs against DC. Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler and Robin Uthappa too contributed with the bat in the match against DC. However, Steve Smith has been out of form for some matches now and that is a big concern for the side. 

Rajasthan's inconsistent batting may prove pale against RCB's formidable bowling unit. 

Besides, Virat Kohli would ask RCB bowlers to strike early and destabilise RR innings to take the lead in the match. Kohli would also look to bring back AB de Villiers into his usual batting position because the otherwise move cost the team dearly.
