RCB vs RR – Yesterday’s IPL Match The IPL 2024 match between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur turned out to be an absolute cracker of a contest. In a high-scoring thriller, RCB posted an imposing 183/3 in their 20 overs, riding on a spectacular unbeaten 113 off just 72 balls from Virat Kohli.
