The eliminator match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) is currently underway at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. This do-or-die encounter is critical for both teams; the losing side will be eliminated from the tournament, while the victor advances to Qualifier-2 to face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Faf du Plessis fixates on IPL trophy

RCB’s quest for their maiden IPL trophy is palpable, and this fervor was evident in the demeanor of their captain, Faf du Plessis. A viral photo on social media captures the South African veteran intently gazing at the IPL trophy, seemingly studying the engraved names of past winners. The image has sparked a flurry of reactions from fans, reflecting their excitement and anticipation.

Toss and team strategy

Royals’ captain Sanju Samson won the toss and elected to bowl first, a decision Du Plessis mentioned he would have made as well. Despite not winning the toss, Du Plessis conveyed confidence in his team’s strategy and emphasized a steady approach.

“Watching the game last night, there was assistance for the seam bowlers early on. This looks on the drier side with some fake grass on top. We’ve had that mindset right through. Focusing on your own skills, being true to the way you want to play. Last game against CSK was an unbelievable one. Less is more. People think when you get to the knockout stages, you need to be Superman. It’s just showing the boys that you trust them. Same team,” Du Plessis remarked.

RCB Playing XI: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Rajat Patidar, Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Karn Sharma, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Siraj, Lockie Ferguson
Impact Subs: Swapnil Singh, Anuj Rawat, Suyash Prabhudessai, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Himanshu Sharma

Faf du plessis looked very closly at the trophy and even held the trophy slightly while taking the photo because Faf will never hold the trophy or ever see it closer since they are not winning 🤣🤣
