By the end of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) Match 14, between the Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royals Challengers Bangalore (RCB), one of these teams would have registered their first win of the season. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane are facing the heat as three defeats in a row have dented their prospects of seeing their respective teams in the next round. Rajasthan Royals would consider themselves unlucky as they could have won at least two of the three games they have faced defeat in. But for Bangalore, it is been a poor show all-around with the loss at Hyderabad the lowest point. Let us have a quick look at the five players that can have the maximum impact in the game. RR vs RCB Head-to-Head Record: Ahead of IPL 2019 Clash, Here Are Match Results of Last 5 Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Encounters!
Jofra Archer (Rajasthan Royals)
The speedster bowled brilliantly in his four-over spell against Chennai and almost got them home with some excellent hitting right at the end. His economy rate is what makes him a real class bowler in T20 cricket. The Bangalore batsman folded easily against Hyderabad and for them to tackle Archer, it is going to take some skill.

Ben Stokes (Rajasthan Royals)
The English all-rounder hit form in the last game, and there is no better hitter in the game than him when he is on a song. He also picks up wickets in the middle overs where it is crucial to breaking partnerships. The Rajasthan management could well use him higher up the order just to see what impact he has in the powerplays.
Sanju Samson (Rajasthan Royals)
The Indian batsman is the kind of player that forges partnerships and around whom the hitters come into play. He has already hit a century in the IPL so he will be confident he can take on a weak Royal Challengers Bangalore bowling unit. Samson’s importance increases many folds if Rajasthan are chasing since he holds the innings.
AB de Villiers (Royal Challengers)
The South African legend has failed to be his real self in the league so far, but a champion innings by ABD is never far away. He is batting at no 4 which experts believe does not give him the freedom to express himself. We could see him bat higher against Rajasthan as they are in desperate need of some magic by Mr 360.
Yuzvendra Chahal (Royal Challengers)
The talented spinner has been amongst the wickets though a tad too expensive in the three games he has played. Chahal is a proper attacking spinner, and his role becomes crucial in the powerplays when the batsman look to dominate.
The two sides are clearly not in the best of forms but Rajasthan Royals playing at home will be confident they can get a much-needed win against Royal Challengers Bangalore who are an unsettled unit.
