VIVO IPL 2021: RR vs PBKS Preview & Dream 11 Prediction
- Rajasthan Royals a batting as well as settled bowling lineup.
- Punjab Kings have a strong batting and bowling lineup.
- Lack of captaincy experience a challenge for Sanju Samson.
Last year, Rajasthan Royals was finished in bottom of the table “Last Position”, Punjab Kings was Finished in 6th Position in IPL 2020. This time in VIVO IPL 2021, both teams will start season 14 with strong teams.
The organization of the Kings of Punjab has adopted the new team name and logo in search of a better change in the team in 2021. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals will be keen to make amends for a poor run in the IPL 2020. They started off so strongly but the tournament progressed and the tournament progressed under the leadership of Captain Steve Smith, who was released and joined the Delhi capitals. Rajasthan Royals vs Punjab Kings will be a good match as both the teams have some great players, and here is your chance to be a part of this competition.
Rajasthan Royals have a new captain in Sanju Samson and this will be a big test for them. He is their main batsman and now the pressure of captaincy also needs to be handled. Sanju has led Kerala in domestic cricket but the IPL is a different animal. The Royals will miss England fast bowler Jofra Archer for a long time in IPL 2021 due to elbow surgery. The look will be on the outing of Chris Morris, who was bought for Rs 16.5 crore, the highest bid for any player in IPL history. RR Batting will depend on Sanju, Jose Butler and Ben Stokes.
Punjab will be strong under the leadership of captain KL Rahul as they will have the biggest chance to upset any team. He already has Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal etc. and has added David Malan of England to the world No.1 T20I batsman. He has an exciting prospect in Australian fast bowler Riley Meredith. All they need is a coherent and consistent effort to go the distance.
