Rajasthan Royals (RR) won the toss and elected to bat in their Indian Premier League match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium here on Saturday.

RCB have made two changes, bringing in batsman Gurkeerat Singh Mann to replace pace bowler Mohammed Siraj. Bengal left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed replaces all-rounder Shivam Dube.
