19:04 IST: TOSS – Bangalore have won the toss and they have elected to BOWL first!

19:00 IST: PITCH REPORT – Deep Dasgupta is down near the pitch. He says that this is the pitch that was used where Kolkata had chased down 160 when Pat Cummins played that blinder of an innings. Adds that it looks quite green and seamers might get help, but it’s abrasive under the grass which means that it could grip and it’s a two-paced wicket. Traditionally it’s been a chasing ground. 

18:38 IST: Honestly, Rajasthan have been the most prolific team around this season, with the top scorer, Jos Buttler, and the highest wicket-taker, Yuzvendra Chahal in them. They do look like a solid team and will fancy a win here against Bangalore who were demolished by Hyderabad in their last match. They will be itching to bounce back with a solid performance and will hope that Virat Kohli breaks the shackles and find some form. If you look at the last few battles between these two, it is Bangalore who dominates the chart. This one promises to be an exciting match. Stay tuned for the toss and other updates.

18:36 IST: Hello and a warm welcome to the coverage of match number 39 where Bangalore will meet Rajasthan. The last time these two met earlier, it was the team from South who won the clash. Will they do the double or Rajasthan will take the revenge? We will find out.
