RR vs PBKS VIVO IPL 2021 Match 04 Preview:
The fourth match of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will be played between a team that won its first and only IPL trophy in the opening season of IPL, Rajasthan Royals, and a team that has never experienced the glory of winning an IPL trophy, Punjab Kings.
Talking about Rajasthan Royals, this team finished at the bottom of the table in the last season of IPL. Sanju Samson has been appointed as the new captain of this side and must be looking to successfully lead the team. Rajasthan has got an explosive opener in Jos Buttler, he can single-handedly change the game for his side.
It will be interesting to see who will be the second opener for Rajasthan with the best bet being Ben Stokes. In the middle order, the team has young players like Yashasvi Jaiswal and Riyan Parag. Rahul Tewatia, a newfound star for Rajasthan, will take the charge as a finisher for the team. In the bowling department, the unavailability of their best pacer, Jofra Archer, can make things difficult for Rajasthan.
Kartik Tyagi, Andrew Tye, Mustafizur Rahman, and Jaydev Unadkat are among the top pace options available for Rajasthan Royals this season. In the spin department, Shreyas Gopal is likely to lead the attack.
The Punjab Kings finished at the 6th spot in the previous season of VIVO IPL and will be looking to change their fortune this season. This team has gone through a rebranding this year and is also expecting to rebrand their performance. KL Rahul is leading this side and the squad of Punjab Kings looks promising with the only issue being the execution.
KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal provide a consistent start to the team but compromise on playing the universe boss Chris Gayle. This year we may witness a change in strategy and Chris Gayle may open for Punjab Kings.
The middle-order has players like Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, and Nicholas Pooran. Mohammed Shami will lead the pace attack for Punjab Kings. In the spin department, Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin will take the charge.
Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings have faced each other in 21 games, out of which Punjab won 9 games while Rajasthan won 12 games.
