    With one spot in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 final already secured by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), it is now time for Eliminator to determine who will face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Qualifier 2. In Eliminator, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) will clash with Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. 

    It will be a royal battle, both literally and metaphorically. Captained by Faf du Plessis and powered by Virat Kohli, RCB are on a roll, while the Sanju Samson-led RR have had their moments and will be no pushovers.

    RR vs RCB:

    Talking about the two sides, the Rajasthan team lost their top spot and moved to the No. 3 spot after not winning a single game in May. They will focus on regrouping and strategizing better for their upcoming game.

    On the other hand, the Bengaluru franchise had a remarkable turnaround, winning six games on the trot in May after losing most of their games in April—a feat no other team has achieved this IPL season. They literally jumped from the 10th spot to the 4th after their back-to-back victories.

    Ahmedabad weather:

    While rain has interrupted play towards the end of the league stage, the skies in Ahmedabad look clear for the much-awaited Eliminator. There is no chance of rain interrupting the match and with a 0% chance of precipitation, viewers can enjoy the game without any halts. The temperature is expected to be between 31°C and 32°C, making for a hot, sunny day followed by a clear and hot evening.
