IPL 2020 has finally completed a full week of action as the most awaited festival of cricket now steps into its second week. The first seven days were none less than a dramatic thriller. It had action, intensity, tension, dual battles, close-cut finishes, and what not? Now as IPL 2020 advances, Rajasthan Royals (RR) take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Matchday 9 of this year’s tournament.

Rajasthan Royals had a great opening in their IPL 2020 campaign as they beat the three-time champions, Chennai Super Kings in their first game of the season. The good news for Rajasthan is Jos Buttler’s availability. Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, lost their opening game to Delhi Capitals in the Super Over but made a comeback in style against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
