RR vs PBKS Match Preview

As the IPL 2024 season approaches its end, Rajasthan Royals face Punjab Kings in what promises to be a high-stakes encounter. Rajasthan Royals, placed second on the points table, aim to solidify their playoff spot. Punjab Kings, already out of playoff contention, will look to play spoilers while aiming for a dignified end to their season. Notably, RR's Jos Buttler, as well as PBKS's Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone, have flown back to the UK and will not participate in the remainder of the IPL 2024.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan's lineup remains strong despite the absence of Jos Buttler. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sanju Samson will be crucial at the top, with Sanju Samson's role as captain and key batsman being more pivotal than ever. The middle order featuring Riyan Parag and Rovman Powell needs to continue their form. Bowling led by Trent Boult and supported by spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal will be crucial in containing the PBKS batsmen.

Rajasthan Royals Possible 11:

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Rovman Powell, Shubham Dubey, Dhruv Jurel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal.

The bowling attack, featuring Kagiso Rabada and Harshal Patel, will need to be at its best to challenge RR's strong batting lineup.

Prabhsimran Singh, Rilee Rossouw, Shashank Singh, Sam Curran (c), Jitesh Sharma, Ashutosh Sharma, Harshal Patel, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada. Impact sub: Vidhwath Kaverappa.
