Rajasthan will host Bangalore team at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on Saturday in one of the most crucial encounters which will act as a decider to book a berth in the play-offs of Indian Premier League 2018.

At present, Rajasthan, Bangalore, Kolkata and Mumbai are fighting for two empty seats of the play-offs as Hyderabad and Chennai have already qualified in the play-offs.

Fifty-two matches have been played till now and still, the fight is very tough and that can be seen when Ajinkya Rahane-led Rajasthan will lock horns with Virat Kohli-led Bangalore.

A loss will definitely knock the team out the defeated team from the play-off race and a victory will give the team a better chance of going through.

There aren't any fresh news of injuries, players from both the teams are fit and healthy and it is expected that the skippers will enter the fields with the same squad.
