Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are all set to play Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the match no 14 of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL). The action will take place at Rajasthan home ground Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. Neither teams have done well so far in IPL season 12, as both have played three matches and have not yet won a single game. RCB skipper Virat Kohli can become the topmost scorer in IPL against RR, by scoring 67 runs to surpass CSK batsman Suresh Raina.

Chennai left-handed batsman Raina has 5070 runs to his name, and he is currently leading the list of top run-scorers in Indian Premier League. Raina has made one century and 34 fifties in his IPL career. He has scored runs at an average of 34.25 and strike rate of 138.14.

Apart from Raina and Kohli at the top two positions of leading run scorers in IPL, the other cricketers in the list are Rohit Sharma with 4587 runs, followed by David Warner and Robin Uthappa with 4268 runs and 4242 runs respectively. Virat Kohli can head this list if he plays a good knock of 67 runs or more in the upcoming match against RR.

RCB faced a massive defeat against SRH in their previous game, where SRH posted a total of 231/2 in 20 overs, in reply RCB got all out on 113 runs. This loss has hit their Net Run Rate (NRR) very badly as their current NRR is -2.413. It's high time when RCB has to decide on the perfect playing XI and also execute proper strategy for the game.
