RR had defeated CSK in the final of the inaugral IPL season in 2008.

Cricket Betting

RR’s 2019 IPL games were based in India, but in 2020 all the IPL matches were hosted in the UAE due to the first wave of COVID-19. In IPL 2021, RR played their first few matches in India, but then due to the worsening pandemic situation, the remaining IPL tournament was moved to the UAE.

RR Match Highlights

Though everyone expected a better show from RR in IPL 2019, especially after a Playoff finish in the previous season, RR finished 7th with 5 wins, 8 losses and 1 game ended with no results.

They had a good batting line-up comprising Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and the top-scorer Ajinkya Rahane (393 runs). Though, Smith joined the squad and led the side 9th match onwards after serving his 12-month ban. The lack of world-class bowlers was one of the main causes of their poor results.

Though, all-rounder and leg-breaker Shreyas Gopal was good for his 20 wickets from 14 matches. RR shone in their away win against KKR in the group stage as they successfully chased down the target of 176 with 3 wickets and 4 balls remaining. Rahane (34 runs) and Samson’s (22 runs) opening stand of 53 runs in 5.2 overs, Riyan Parag’s 47 off 31 in the middle and Jofra Archer’s cameo of 12-balls 27 contributed to RR’s victory.

In 2020, they did slightly better compared to 2019 in terms of the number of wins – 6 – but still remained at the bottom of the points table. Interestingly, the bottom-three teams shared the same points – 12, and the third and fourth-ranked teams were just two points ahead of these teams.

Rajasthan Royals managed to finish 7th in the points table of the last season.

Cricket Betting

In the match against PBKS, RR created an IPL record of the highest total chase in IPL history. PBKS had put up 223 runs on the board batting first. The Royals were 1 down in the third over, but Smith’s (50 runs off 27 balls)  quick half-century.

Then followed Samson’s magical innings of 85 runs from just 42 deliveries, which included 7 sixes. Rahul Tewatia (53 off 31) too joined the bandwagon. Jofra Archer’s 2 sixes in the penultimate over, followed by Tewatia’s another one, ensured the victory with 3 balls remaining.

IPL 2021 didn’t prove any better for RR. They again lingered at 7th place in the points table after managing to win just 5 out of 14 group stage games.

Among the group-stage matches, The Royals were especially remarkable in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, as they put up 220 runs batting first. The credit goes to Buttler’s 124 runs off just 64 deliveries. His centurion innings included 8 sixes and 11 fours. Mustafizur Rahman and Chris Morris took 3 wickets each as RR won the game by 55 runs.

RR Schedule

In the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League, RR’s schedule shows 14 matches at the group stage. They will start their campaign with the match against SRH on 29 March at 19:30 IST at MCA Stadium, Pune.

RR will play 7 games in the first half of the tournament, and their remaining 7 games are scheduled between 26 April to 20 May. Promising Sanju Samson-led RR will play their last group stage match against Chennai Super Kings at Brabourne Stadium at 19:30 IST.

We can see the majority of RR matches in April. They have just 1 game in March, 8 games in April, and the last 5 matches in May.

Like other IPL teams, Rajasthan Royals also have four games to play at Wankhede Stadium, where they will meet KKR, PBKS, RCB and LSG. The Royals will play 4 games at DY Patil Stadium, which are against MI (twice), GT and DC.

At Brabourne Stadium Mumbai, RR will face KKR, LSG and CSK, and they have matches against teams like SRH, DC and RCB at Pune’s MCA Stadium.

Watch out for the Royals’ matches against their key rivals like CSK, DC and SRH. While RR’s first match is against SRH, they will clash with DC twice – on 22 April and 11 May. Both games will begin at 19:30 IST. RR will face CSK very late in the tournament – on 20 May at 19:30 IST.

RR vs

The first IPL champions, RR have the best success ratio against Punjab Kings. Over the years, the two sides played 23 games, out of which RR won 13 games with a 56.52% win-loss ratio. Against Delhi Capitals, they are neck in neck. RR encountered DC 24 times since the first IPL season, and both sides won 12 games.

Rajasthan Royals have reached knockout stage only four times in 14 seasons.

Cricket Betting

The Royals are marginally behind Mumbai Indians. RR won 11 encounters and 13 games went against them, which is absolutely commendable considering they performed against the most successful team. The Royals carry a similar win-loss percentage against two-time IPL winners KKR – 11 wins and 13 losses from 24 games.

They are not too far behind RCB as well. Out of their 24 encounters, RR won 10 and lost 12, while two matches were abandoned. CSK have been their toughest opponent. The two sides clashed in 25 IPL games, out of which RR won 10 games, but lost 15 – resulting in a 40% winning percentage.

    RR Results by Season

RR vs CSK Prediction

CSK and RR matches have produced some of the greatest moments over the years. RR defeated CSK in the final of the first-ever IPL championship in 2008. CSK is known for their consistency. CSK have 9 IPL final appearances and 4 IPL trophies, while RR couldn’t add anything to their tally.  Head to our RR vs CSK prediction, head-to-head analysis and predictions for more insights into RR vs CSK contests.

RR vs SRH Prediction

IF we just compare the two sides in terms of the number of trophies – they are equal. Though, the difference between SRH and RR is that the former have consistently produced better outcomes and qualified for playoffs, while RR reached Playoffs only thrice in the past 11 IPL appearances. At Cricket Betting, you can find RR vs SRH prediction, in-depth analysis and head-to-head records loaded with key stats.

RCB vs RR Prediction

RR, the first IPL winners, have failed to reach the Playoffs in the previous three IPL seasons. On the other hand, RCB always looked promising and reached the IPL finals thrice, though they never won a trophy even with the best of T20 players by their side. Munch over some RCB vs RR prediction, in-depth analysis, head-to-head records and stats at the Cricket Betting.

MI VS RR Prediction

MI can turn any game to their favour, however impossible it may look. Who can forget the “Qualifying” Six by Aditya Tare against RR in 2014? On the other hand, RR just made it to the playoffs thrice after the first IPL championship. Cricket Betting presents MI vs RR prediction, head-to-head review, records along with detailed analysis over the years.

KKR VS RR Prediction

RR haven’t qualified in the Playoffs in the last three seasons. Perhaps they need a mentor as magical as Shane Warne to turn the table. KKR, the two-time champions, have an upper hand against RR. At Cricket Betting, you will get the analysis in the form of KKR vs RR prediction, a detailed head-to-head analysis loaded with notable stats.

PBKS VS RR Prediction

RR have better records against PBKS across all the seasons of IPL. For RR, a lot depends on their leader Sanju Samson, and players like R Ashwin and Devdutt Padikkal. Mayank Agarwal led PBKS will also miss KL Rahul immensely. Visit Cricket Betting for KKR vs PBKS prediction, their head-to-head records, detailed analysis and all kinds of stats.

RR have their highest winning percentage (56.52%) against PBKS in the IPL.

Cricket Betting

DC VS RR Prediction

The Delhi based franchise hasn’t won an IPL trophy, though they made it to the final of IPL 2020. RR lifted an IPL trophy 14 years back, but in the last three years, they lingered somewhere around the bottom of the points table. It’s difficult to believe The Royals were once IPL champions. At Cricket Betting, you can find DC vs RR prediction, in-depth analysis, head-to-head records and stats.
