Sanju Samson will battle it out with Faf du Plessis in today’s game of the TATA IPL.

The Royals are looking the heavier team right now with two wins and are sitting right at the top of the points table. They have won both of their games and would love to extend their winning streak by defeating the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Looking upon their previous fixtures, Rajasthan last won against the Chennai Super Kings by easily chasing down 211.

They have quality batsmen and bowlers in their lineup and this has enhanced the team to a whole new level.
