Pitch Report: As seen in the previous game, there was some help for the pace bowlers on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium wicket. The pitch has surely been challenging for the batsmen and they will have to bat really well to put up a big total while batting first. However, batting first will be a safe decision after winning the toss on this surface.
Toss Update: Punjab Kings won the toss and opted to bowl first.
It will be a good choice of decision from the fantasy point of view to pick a mixture of players from both the Punjab and Rajasthan teams. The likes of KL Rahul, Sanju Samson, Mayank Agarwal and Chris Morris are definite picks in this PBKS vs RR match. It will be a calculative move to include as many as fast bowlers to increase the chances of winning big contests.
WICKET-KEEPERS: KL Rahul, Sanju Samson, Nicholas Pooran
BATSMEN: Mayank Agarwal, Aiden Markram, Evin Lewis
ALL-ROUNDERS: Chris Morris, Deepak Hooda
BOWLERS: Arshdeep Singh, Adil Rashid, Chetan Sakariya
The Rajasthan Royals will be the favourites to win this match as they have some really good players both in the batting as well as bowling departments. They did well in these UAE conditions during IPL 2020. On the other hand, the Punjab Kings also have the ability and line-up to give a tough fight to their opponents in this game. Thus, it will be another crackerjack contest in IPL 2021.
The Punjab Kings will want to do well collectively both with the bat and ball in order to qualify for the playoffs. In this batting line-up, skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal’s opening partnership will be really crucial for the Punjab Kings alongside players like Deepak Hooda and Chris Gayle. The likes of Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh and Ravi Bishnoi will be their key bowlers.
Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul is coming into this second phase of IPL 2021 season after a spectacular performance in the recent Test series against England. Rahul also finished as the leading run-scorer when the IPL was last played in the UAE conditions. The right-handed opener was in a great form during the first half of the tournament scoring a total of 331 runs in just 7 innings at an average of 66.20.
For the Punjab Kings, opening batsman Mayank Agarwal has performed sensational well in the first half of the IPL 2021 season and also delivered with the bat in the IPL 2020 played in the UAE. In his last IPL match against Delhi Captains, Mayank played a captain’s knock of 99 runs off just 58 balls in some challenging conditions. He has already scored more than 250 runs this season.

For the Rajasthan Royals, both their batsmen and bowlers have lacked consistency in the Indian Premier League 2021 season so far. RR skipper Sanju Samson has played a significant role with the bat for his franchise in the last two years but consistency has been a serious problem for him. The likes of Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag and Liam Livingstone will have to play well in this important match. On the other hand, Chris Morris alongside Kartik Tyagi and Chetan Sakariya will be their important bowlers.
Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson smashed a remarkable hundred in the first match for his side in IPL 2021 against the same opposition. The right-hander has scored more than 2500 runs and is quite an experienced performer over the years in the IPL. He has scored a total of 13 fifties and 3 centuries alongwith an impressive strike-rate of 134.83.
For the Rajasthan Royals, the most expensive player in the history of the IPL, Chris Morris, delivered two brilliant performances both with the bat and ball each in the first half of the competition. Morris picked up 14 wickets from 7 matches at an economy of 8.61. He registered excellent figures of 4 for 23 against Kolkata Knight Riders earlier this season and also played an important cameo of 36 runs off only 18 balls to help Rajasthan Royals win a nail-biting encounter against Delhi Capitals.
