April 16 - Kings XI Punjab v Rajasthan Royals 3:30 PM (2:30 GMT)
Kings XI Punjab will face off against Rajasthan Royals at Punjab's home ground at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
Kings XI Punjab are placed at the fifth spot in the points table with four wins and four losses from eight matches.
They have been doing decently with KL Rahul and Chris Gayle now coming back to full rhythm. Chris Gayle got strangled at 99 in the last match and missed a century by just one run. Rahul has also been playing beautifully.
In the bowling department, Murugan Ashwin and Ravichandran Ashwin complement each other while Mohammed Shami has been bowling as well as he ever has in his career.
Rajasthan got off to a good start while chasing a target of 188 against Mumbai Indians. RR openers Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Buttler got off the blocks quickly and had a 16-run partnership. Once Rahane departed, Buttler had a good partnership with Sanju Samson.
Post Buttler's dismissal, 11 shy of a century, Rajasthan Royals panicked. Despite needing just 30 runs from the last 30 balls, RR lost some quick wickets and stuttered home with just three balls remaining. Nevertheless, they have got the two points that they so desperately required and remain in contention for qualifying to the playoffs.
Jofra Archer was good in the last match against Mumbai Indians as he has been in the last couple of matches, and picked three wickets. The team's bowling is also bolstered by two spinning all-rounders Shreyas Gopal and Krishnappa Gowtham.
Probable playing XIs of both teams -
Kings XI Punjab- Lokesh Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, Nicholas Pooran, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin, Andrew Tye, Mohammed Shami, Murugan Ashwin
Rajasthan Royals- Ajinkya Rahane, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, Rahul Tripathi, Liam Livingstone, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni
