RR vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction: 4th Match, IPL 2021
RR vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and match preview of IPL 2021. Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings will play against each other in the 4th match at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Rajasthan Royals have been inconsistent throughout the history of IPL. They managed to win the title only in the first season, and after that, they have struggled a lot even to qualify for playoffs. In the last season, they finished at the bottom of the points table.
Ben Stokes opened the innings for RR in the last season and successfully provided an excellent start and is likely to continue this season. Jos Buttler is a good finisher as well as an opening batsman. If Buttler is decided as the finisher, then the youngster Yashaswi Jaiswal might get a chance to open alongside Ben Stokes.
The new captain of the team, Sanju Samson, is most likely to play at No.3. In the middle-order, players like Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, David Miller, and all-rounders like Chris Morris, Shivam Dube will play a crucial role in the lower middle-order.
Jofra Archer has opted out of IPL this season, and this would be a significant disadvantage, but RR still has got a lot of good options. Chris Morris, Andrew Tye, Mustafizur Rahman, Ben Stokes, Jaydev Unadkat, and Kartik Tyagi can look after the pace attack. Their spin department lacks experience, but they have some decent players like Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia.
Rajasthan Royals appear to be a little imbalanced, but they have some excellent individual players who can turn the game just by their performance.
For the last 13 seasons, the team that was called Kings XI Punjab has now changed its name to Punjab Kings. They have had decent players across many seasons, but they were unlucky not to win a single title. They performed well in the second half of last season and finished at the 5th position on the table.
KL Rahul is the captain of the team and opens the innings along with Mayank Agarwal. They both had some excellent partnerships in the last season and gave a fantastic start in most matches. Rahul was also awarded the Orange cap in the previous season. Chris Gayle might bat at No.3, but it is not sure as he did not play the initial games in the last season.
The middle-order of PBKS appears to be a little weak as there are not many experienced players. Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, Deepak Hooda, and Sharukh Khan are Indian players, and they do not have experience of Internation Cricket. Moises Henriques, Nicholas Pooran, Dawid Malan, and Fabian Allen might play a crucial role this season.
Mohammad Shami, Jhye Richardson, Chris Jordan, Riley Meredith, and Ishan Porel will form the core pace attack, and it is one of the most substantial sets of fast bowlers this season. Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi will be the team’s spin department.
Punjab Kings looks like an excellent team and has all the departments’ good players, and they have a perfect chance of winning the title this year.
