After losing to the Kings XI Punjab in their last IPL 2020 match, the Royal Challengers Bangalore will be keen to return to winning ways when they battle the Rajasthan Royals in their ninth game of the season. RCB had won five of their seven games in the season's first half, but KXIP defeated them by eight wickets at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals have managed only three wins in eight matches of IPL 2020. The inaugural IPL winners won their first two games quite dominantly. However, they have registered only a single victory in their last six fixtures.

The Steve Smith-led outfit have made some tactical errors in their last few matches. They have used Ben Stokes as an opener and demoted Robin Uthappa to the middle-order. RCB also committed a similar mistake in their previous game as they promoted Washington Sundar and Shivam Dube above AB de Villiers.

Both teams have been a vital part of the IPL since 2008. Here's a look at their head-to-head stats before their second meeting in IPL 2020.

Yuzvendra Chahal had won the Player-of-the-Match award in the previous game between RR and RCB.
