Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: IPL 2020 - Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab - Match 9
The 9th match of the Indian Premier League 2020 will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah in the UAE.
Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab have met each other in 19 encounters in the Indian Premier League, out of which the record is pretty even stevens, with Rajasthan winning 10 games and Punjab winning 9 of them.
In IPL 2019, Punjab were successful in winning both the games against Rajasthan and might have good memories of that.
While Punjab have started off their IPL 2020 campaign at a good note with a win following a super over defeat against Delhi, Rajasthan exceeded expectations with a victory over Chennai Super Kings in their first match of the competition.
Punjab are expected to go in with an unchanged playing XI. Jos Buttler is likely to come in for David Miller for RR.
KL Rahul will be the player to watch out for in the match as he has been in terrific form. Rahul, who smashed a brilliant century in the last game, really promises to have an exceptional season.
Punjab's four overseas picks are Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, James Neesham and Sheldon Cottrell while Rajasthan will go in with Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Tom Curran and Jofra Archer as their overseas options.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) - Lokesh Rahul(c & wk), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Sarfaraz Khan, James Neesham, Mohammed Shami, Murugan Ashwin, Sheldon Cottrell, Ravi Bishnoi
Rajasthan Royals (RR) - Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler(wk), Sanju Samson, Steve Smith(c), Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Tom Curran, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat
