The teams of Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will face each other for the second time in the season today. This match will be played at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium (MCA). In the first encounter, the bet was lost to RCB by 4 wickets. Before this match, the Bangalore team was all out for just 68 runs against SRH.
RR is playing like champions for the first time after season 1. The biggest proof of this is that Orange Cap winner Jos Buttler and Purple Cap winner Yuzvendra Chahal are part of the Rajasthan team. Seeing the form of Butler, it seems that he is fully determined to break the record for most runs in a season.

We have seen a good batting track in MCA Stadium, Pune. RR had scored 210 against the SRH on this ground of this season. There is some assistance for bowlers also in the initial period of innings.
Most of the strips are of Red soil, which gives good bounce and pace to bat on. We can't forget the whole IPL is going to play in only 4 venues so there will be some assistance to spin too in the mid way of the tournament.
