Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals will clash against each other in the 32nd match of IPL 2021 at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. We will cover PBKS vs RR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.
PBKS vs RR Dream11 Match Preview
Punjab Kings had a tough time in the first half as they won only three out of the eight matches in the first half of IPL 2021 and are currently at the sixth position on the points table.
The skipper and opener of the team, KL Rahul, has been in sublime form and is the second-highest run-scorer this season, and Mayank Agarwal was not completely fit the last time. At No.3, Chris Gayle will be crucial in batting for the Punjab Kings.
In the middle-order, Nicholas Pooran performed poorly in the first half but hoping to turn around things this time. Deepak Hooda and Sharukh Khan played some good innings, and in the lower-order, Harpreet Brar impressed everyone with his performance.
The bowlers have done a decent job for PBKS. Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh have been the leading wicket-takers of the team, and with Nathan Ellis coming into the team, the pace attack looks even more robust. Ravi Bishnoi and Harpreet Brar have impressed everyone with their performance in the spin department.
Punjab Kings would be hoping to make a comeback by winning most of the remaining matches.
Rajasthan Royals are in decent form as they have won three out of the seven matches and are currently at the 5th position on the points table.
There have been a lot of changes in the squad after the first leg of IPL. Liam Livingstone or Evin Lewis is likely to open the innings in the absence of Jos Buttler. The youngster Jaiswal has started performing well on the big stage. Skipper Samson has played some crucial knocks this season.
The middle-order has a good mixture of young and experienced talent. David Miller and Rayan Parag are expected to be the finishers, and Shivam Dube has not scored runs at a reasonable strike rate this season. Tewatia can be the surprising element in their batting order.
There have been changes even in the bowling department. Oshane Thomas and Tabraiz Shamsi have been added to the squad. Chris Morris has been the highest wicket-taker of the team. The debutant Sakariya has been impressive so far this season.
Rajasthan Royals has to win as many matches to stay in the competition for the playoffs.
