The second encounter between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals this 2021 is going to take place on 21st September 2021 in Dubai at Dubai International Cricket stadium. Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings are currently standing in the 5th and 6th position respectively both with 6 points. As the IPL competition becoming even tighter, Rajasthan Royals are in a good position to take advantage over Punjab Kings. Rajasthan Royals have predominantly secured their name when it comes to batting. Earlier this season, they managed to win against Delhi capitals with 3 wickets making them even more lethal. Rajasthan Royals are however facing a major challenge as they are overdependently rely on new foreign recruits who have generally weakened the team.
A win over Delhi capitals by seven wickets in the last match played by Punjab Kings is a great motivation. Despite key players such as Mohammad Shami coming back from the injury, Punjab Kings lucks much experience in the game. Another setback that may leave Punjab kings exposed is the inexperienced bowling line up. Unlike Rajasthan Royals, who have a well know bowling lineup, Punjab Kings will suffer yet another defeat this season.
