Watch live online as Rajasthan Royals seek revenge against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 29th match of IPL 2015, just five days after Bangalore administered a humiliating nine-wicket drubbing to the then-table topping Rajashthan side.
To find out how to watch the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Rajasthan Royals rematch live online from M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Banglaore, see the information at the bottom of this article. The match starts at 8 p.m. Indian Standard Time, which is 10:30 a.m. United States Eastern Time, 7:30 a.m. Pacific.
Royal Challengers Bangalore struggled to start the season, but since the arrival of Australian fast bowler — and Cricket World Cup Man of the Tournament — Mitchell Starc, RCB has been nearly unbeatable, winning two of the three games in which the dominating Starc has appeared.
The Virat Kohli-captained side now sits at 3-3, but with momentum on their side suddenly appear in excellent position to secure a postseason berth and a shot at the Indian Premier League championship. RCB currently sits in fourth place.
But a second win over Rajasthan would be hugely significant, not only boosting RCB over Kolkata Knight Riders into third place, but sending a clear message that the once-unstoppable Rajasthan Royals no longer have a secure hold on their own playoff berth.
Rajasthan has dropped two matches in a row after winning their first five but collected an 11th point from a rainout. But Bangalore destroyed Delhi Daredevils by 10 wickets, holding their opponents to just 95 in their most recent outing.
Starc has collected seven wickets in his 12 overs so far, and South African David Wiese has also bolstered the bowling attack for Royal Challengers Bangalore, while Chris Gayle and Kohli appear to have hit their stride as opening batsmen.
If there is anything working against RCB as they go up against Rajasthan Wednesday, it’s that their home ground in Bangalore has not been friendly. All three Royal Challengers wins have come on the road, and they have yet to record a victory in front of their home fans.
