Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR)

This is a contest between two underperforming teams in the IPL. Both KXIP and RR haven’t really done well in the tournament. Punjab has only made it to the playoffs stage twice, with the last being in the 2014 season. Rajasthan won the tournament during the inaugural edition, but since then their performances have been below par.

When we look at the matches played between the two sides, the odds are evenly balanced. In the 19 games they have played, Rajasthan has won 10 and Punjab 9. With nothing much to differentiate between the two, it should be an interesting contest between an experienced side like RR and a young team like KXIP.

For Punjab, their captain K L Rahul has performed exceptionally well in the last 2 seasons and the same will be expected from him this season as well, thanks to his brilliant run in international cricket. A lot will be expected from power-hitters like Glenn Maxwell and Chris Gayle on the batting front. Mohammad Shami and Sheldon Cotrell will be the key bowlers for Punjab. Also, an experienced coach like Anil Kumble has the potential to turn their fortunes around. 

Rajasthan will play under the leadership of Steve Smith again. Their batting looks formidable with players like Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson, Jos Bulter, Steve Smith and David Miller and the same is the case with the bowling department with the likes of Andrwe Tye, Jaydev Unadkat and Jofra Archer.
