    Venue Details | Pitch Report

    The pitch at the HPCA Stadium is a batting-friendly surface. Here the fast bowlers get a little help.  In the last match, we have seen a high-scoring game where in both innings the teams scored 200 runs. Here the boundaries are short in size and the ball comes on to the bat nicely which helps the batters to score quickly in the game. It is expected to be another high-scoring game between PBKS and RR.

    Rajasthan Royals vs Punjab Kings | Team News

    Punjab Kings:

    Punjab lost their last game here at Dharmashala against Delhi. This is a must win game for them where they need to win by a big margin to boost their net run rate. Livingstone played a superb knock of 94 runs but failed to finish the game. But their bowlers aren't in good form in the tournament and leaked a lot of runs in the last match. They need to fight back to win the game and stay in the hunt for playoffs.

    Rajasthan Royals:

    Rajasthan had a thrashing defeat against RCB in the last game and they need to come out from that defeat. This is a must win game for them and their last chance to keep the playoff berth. They have good batsmen in their lineup and they scored consistently in the tournament. Jaiswal and Buttler have a good tournament and scored a lot of runs. Their bowlers also have a good tournament and need to perform well once more to keep their playoff berth alive.
