Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer and Yuzi Chahal are in excellent form and it will not be easy to deal with them. The Royals have been far more consistent in both departments of the game and it shows in the numbers they bet. Punjab Kings rely a little too much on Liam Livingstone to play the role of enforcer and finisher in the mid-overs.Bet Now!
The Kings are currently seventh on the leaderboard with 10 points from as many games. Going forward, they would not only need to rack up some points, but also improve their net run rate of -0.229, which could come in handy when things get tight. Losing here would put them in a difficult position and they will definitely want to avoid that in this match.
We saw the Kings make some adjustments to their batting order in the last game, with Jonny Bairstow leading the opening order with Shikhar Dhawan. Although the Punjab Kings ended up winning the match, Bairstow's promotion didn't really prove to be the solution they were looking for. We expect them to stick with the change as Mayank Agarwal is a better spin player and therefore better equipped for mid-overs.
On paper, Punjab Kings have an excellent site with all the bases covered. Shikhar Dhawan has played the anchor role beautifully lately, while Bhanuka Rajapaksha and Liam Livingstone have been great representatives of middle-over enforcers. Much would depend on how the middle order performs for them, especially given the depth or lack of it in the King's batting order.
The Kings also rely a little too heavily on Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada for bowling. Despite being frugal, Arshdeep has not picked up wickets. Rabada, on the other hand, was among the wickets but was a bit too expensive. With Rahul Chahar's form faltering, the onus lies on Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada to lead the Kings' bowling attack against one of the strongest hitters in the competition.
Overall, Punjab Kings rely heavily on the people showing up and it was evident how their games went. They would need their match winners to make a big contribution here and when that happens the royals will have their work cut out.
As it currently stands on the points table, the Rajasthan Royals are in third place and another win here could put them in second place thanks to their decent .340 net run rate. What works against them is that a loss here means they slip into a midfield mess, which they'd be keen to avoid, especially after the kind of start they've had.
On paper, the Rajasthan Royals have a decent unit with a powerful hitting unit coupled with an equipped Bowling Attack. While they've been carried well by Jos Buttler so far, they have a decent group of batsmen to follow in the middle order, all of whom can run to the ground. However, the problem with the depth of their punches was obvious. Also, they've used Shimron Hetmyer a little late in the last few games.
On the bowling front, the royals did an excellent job, with Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Ashwin being their mainstays in the mid-overs. Even if they couldn't defend the overall victory in the last game, their effort was quite commendable.
All in all, there isn't much the royals did wrong and their position on the ladder reflects that. Another win here will massively increase their chances of qualifying and that's what they'll be aiming for. With the kind of form that Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, Sanju Samson and Yuzvendra Chahal are in, it will take some effort for the kings to beat them.
