With a win needed in almost every upcoming fixture, Rajasthan Royals are set to face Kings XI Punjab in the 40th game of the season. RR is currently on a three-game losing streak and a loss tonight might very well end up their feeble playoff chances. These two sides met only two days ago at Indore where Punjab emerged victorious following an excellent bowling display. Rajasthan have been failing miserably in recent games and if they do not put on an improvised show tonight, it will be curtains for them, this season.
The average score has been 158 in this edition.
RR have won two and lost two in the four games played here.
Ajinkya Rahane has three 30+ scores in those four games.
Jofra Archer has 6 wickets in two games played at this venue.
Jos Butler (If more than one keeper is allowed)
With lack of quality batsmen in both the teams, you can try selecting 2 or 3 all rounders and 4 or 5 bowlers depending upon the cost factor.
Though both the keepers are in good form, a comparatively weaker bowling unit of RR tempts us to choose Lokesh Rahul over Jos Buttler.
Darcy Short could possibly be replaced by Henrich Klassen for today’s clash.
