It has been a sorry season for Royal Challengers Bangalore - 4 wins and 8 losses in 12 matches and are currently placed last on the points table. Their playoff chances could well have ended, but when they take on Rajasthan Royals, there will be pride at stake.

Also, for captain Virat Kohli, it will be chance to script a record. The skipper needs 77 more runs to complete 500 runs this season. If he does get to this feat, it will be his 6th season where he breaches the 500-run mark and will become the first batsman to do it six times.

After Delhi Capitals handed RCB their 8th loss in their previous fixture, Kohli said that he wants his side to have fun and not to take too much pressure about the result.

“We just decided to have a lot of fun and that’s why we won four out of the last six games we have played. The important thing now, with two games left, is to go out there and have fun. Not take too much pressure. Obviously we want to perform as best as we can, but the fun factor should not go away. We put ourselves under too much pressure in the first six games and then it is always hard work in the latter half. We have to go out there and play positive cricket. Once the last two games are done, sit down and see where the tournament goes,” Kohli said.
