The Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru will square off in the Eliminator at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad with just three games remaining in the IPL 2024 season.

With eight victories in their first nine games, Rajasthan enjoyed a fantastic start to the season and appeared headed for a top-two finish. They finished outside the top two in third place, though, having lost their next four games and been eliminated from their final league stage match. If Rajasthan wants to get back up and take the title seriously, this is their last chance. From Bengaluru's perspective, their run to the playoffs has been nothing short of extraordinary. Ahead of the pivotal clash, take4 a look at the Dream11 tips, predictions and other updates for the match.

IPL 2024, RR vs RCB Pitch Update

The Ahmedabad surface is predicted to be drier than previous matches. As a result, batters may struggle at first, as hit-the-deck pacers are likely to dominate. Spinners may also find some help, especially with the older ball during the middle innings. However, circumstances could improve in the second half of the game, with dew perhaps becoming a role. As a result, the toss-winning team may choose to bowl first, recognizing the possible advantage of chasing in dewy circumstances.
