In the IPL match today KXIP vs RR, Rajasthan Royals, and Kings XI Punjab face each other again. Having played each other this Sunday only, the two teams are well aware of each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and strategies. This will make the match a tightly contested one, with Punjab looking to go level on points with CSK with a win. Rajasthan who lost the fixture between the two, two days back will be hoping for a royal turnaround as they fight for that elusive last playoff spot.

Failing terribly in Indore on Sunday, Rajasthan were a shambles of a team on the day. It looked almost as if they were too scared to come out and play against the mighty Punjab side. And this ended up costing them badly after they could only muster up an average 152. Their bowlers fared no better, handing the match to Punjab on a platter by 6 wickets.
Rather than team selection, the focus for the Royals will be getting their strategy and game plan right against Punjab this time around. The first thing on the drawing board for them will be how to contain the mercurial and aggressive KL Rahul and Chris Gayle at the top of Punjab’s batting order. Failure to restrict the both had cost them the match last time, after Rahul took a fancy to their bowlers, hitting them for 84. A change in tactics should see Rajasthan playing an extra spinner to combat the pair who are known for their struggles against spinners. The batting also needs to sort it head out with heavy reliance on Sanju Sampson costing Rajasthan more matches than they would have liked.
