PBKS vs RR Team News

Punjab Kings Team News

Without a doubt, India homegrown pairing of Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma have been the silver lining for PBKS this term. The duo salvaged a thundering victory against GT from the jaws of defeat and almost replicated these heroics against Hyderabad as well.

Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh marched into the purple cap race after picking up four wickets, to take his tally to eight, as the Indian international will spearhead the pace battery alongside Kagiso Rabada who has garnered seven wickets.

Punjab are touted to make some switches to their top-order with the likes of Prabhsimran Singh and Johnny Bairstow currently struggling to score runs for their side.

Rajasthan Royals Team News

Despite a narrow defeat against Gujrat Titans in their previous outing, Sanju Samson's men would be vying to stick with the same eleven that featured against Gujrat.

Young Indian speedster Kuldeep Sen relegated South African star Nandre Burger to the sidelines in his side's previous outing with the former wrapping up three crucial wickets for the Royals.

Riyan Parag continued his purple patch with the bat scoring 76 runs taking his grand total to 261 runs for the 2024 IPL campaign.

Parag will shoulder the stroking responibility alongside captain Sanju Samson with the Indian international spearheading his side from the front bagging his third fifty plus score in five outings.

The point of concern for the visitors would be the form of the opening duo of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler despite the latter's masterclass against RCB. The pair are tipped to retain their position in the eleven while Jaiswal's hunt for his first iconic knock this season continues.
