Rajasthan Royals has better balanced side as compared to Punjab kings.
Sam Curran and Sikandar Raza are in terrific touch and will surely make an impact with their all round game.
Rajasthan Royals have defeated Punjab Kings in last 4 encounters out of 5 played.
Punjab Kings started their campaign on a winning note defeating KKR through DLS method and would consider lucky as match would have gone either way. Shikhar Dhawan, who is playing his first full season as the skipper for the Kings, played a solid knock of 40 runs at the top of the order, while his opening partner, Prabhsimran Singh made a brisk 23. Bhanuka Rajapaksa played well to score his maiden IPL half-century and will be looking to put up a similar performance here. The middle order looks a bit weak when compared to the Royals as the likes of Jitesh Sharma, Sam Curran, and Sikandar Raza lack consistency with the bat.The Kings have a strong pace attack made up of Arshdeep Singh, Sam Curran, and Nathan Ellis. Arshdeep has bowled well for the national team over the past year and was quite impressive in the opening game too where he picked up 3 wickets. Rahul Chahar is the only full time spinner in side but would have assistance from Sikandar raza as well.
The Rajasthan Royals were pretty impressive in their opening encounter as they thrashed the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 72 runs. Thanks to the huge win, they have an excellent NRR and are at the top of the points table.Rajasthan once again started with their tested opening pair of Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal and the duo didn’t disappoint as they put up an 85-run partnership in just under 6 overs. Sanju Samson comes at number 3 following with Devdutt Paddikal . Riyan Parag and Hetmyer increases the depth in the lineup. Trent Boult will lead the pace battery for the side and have a healthy knack of taking wickets upfront. Yuzi Chahal and Ravi Ashwin will look after the Spin department.
