Dravid's Royals take on Kohli's Challengers at the Fortress

Virat Kohli and Rahul Dravid.
The first time these two met in this IPL. It was Chris Gayle who got the home team through with an innings that was very unusual from a batsmen like him. He scored 49 from 43 balls to take RCB to victory. But that story was back in Bangalore. Now the venue has shifted and it is Rajasthan's fortress, The Sawai Mansingh Stadium where the match will be played.

Rajasthan is high on confidence after a win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad thanks to some awesome team work and special efforts from the two Aussies, James Faulkner and Shane Watson. The Royal Challengers meanwhile suffered a humiliating loss to Mumbai Indians at the latter's home ground. None of their key players, Gayle, Kohli and Devilliers fired that day. Kohli was booed by the Mumbai Indian crowd calling him a cheater after the dismissal of Ambati Rayudu. 

Rajasthan is counting high on Faulkner, Watson, Rahane, Dravid and Trivedi to get them through, while RCB will be hopping for another Gayle Storm and that captain regains form. Interestingly we would love to see the battle between Orange cap holder Chris Gayle and the purple cap holder James Faulkner. The match would start live at 4:00pm and will be live on both Setmax and Youtube.
