Rajasthan Royals (RR) are gearing up to face off against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the highly anticipated Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 Eliminator, set to take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday (May 22).

Under the leadership of Sanju Samson, RR secured the third playoff spot despite facing challenges with one league match washed out due to rain and a string of four consecutive losses.

On the other hand, Faf du Plessis‘ RCB secured their playoff berth as the fourth-placed team and are entering the eliminator with momentum on their side, having bounced back with a six-match winning streak following a previous six-match losing streak.

As the clash between the formidable teams approaches, it’s significant to recognize the considerable number of players who have represented both RR and RCB over the years in the IPL. These athletes have etched their legacy across both franchises, adding layers to the league’s vibrant cricketing heritage.
