Mayank Agarwal-led Punjab Kings will take on Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals in the first match of Saturday’s doubleheader on 7 May.
Punjab Kings come into this game high on confidence after their last encounter against Gujarat Titans. The team has five victories in ten fixtures so far. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have six victories and four defeats to their name. Both these sides are part of the mid-table muddle. This makes this clash a crucial fixture for their playoffs hopes.
Interestingly, both these sides are dependent on their top order. While Jos Buttler has been superb for Rajasthan, Shikhar Dhawan has been consistent for Punjab Kings. However, both these teams would need their middle order to be far more consistent if they have to make it to the playoffs.
