Match 39 of IPL 2022 will see Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Rajasthan Royals in Pune. RCB are licking their wounds after suffering an ignominious defeat a few days ago at the hands of SRH, having been skittled out for 68. Their openers haven’t fired for most of the tournament, and Virat Kohli’s lean patch has made things worse. On the contrary, Rajasthan Royals opener Jos Buttler has smashed three hundreds and is by a fair distance the leading run-getter of the tournament with 491 runs so far, at an average of 81.83 and strike rate of 161.51.
