Punjab Kings go head-to-head against Rajasthan Royals in the 66th match of the Indian Premier League at HPCA Stadium Dharamsala on 19th May, Friday at 7:30 PM IST.
Punjab Kings needed to win that crucial game against Delhi Capitals but they went crashing down for another loss. With that Punjab needs a miracle to make it into the playoffs this season. Kings bowlers went for plenty and Delhi went on to post a mammoth 213 runs in the end. Punjab got off to the worst possible start as they lost their skipper for a duck.
It was Atharva Taide and Liam Livingstone that brought them back in the game and they were once threatening Delhi to take the game away but quick wickets went Punjab needed plenty at the end as they failed hit the big ones and lost the game by 15 runs.
When Rajasthan Royals needed to step up in a crunch game, they went down horribly. Against Royal Challengers Bangalore, they needed to win and did well until such time when they restricted Bangalore to 171, experts suggested that Bangalore might’ve got the par score. It was all on Rajasthan batting to get them off to the start they needed.
However, things took a U-turn right ball two, lost five wickets inside the powerplay which pretty much dented their chances of winning the game. Post powerplay things went from bad to worse as Rajasthan Royals succumbed to a 112-run loss, not only they lost a crucial game, and dented their net run rate too with such a heavy loss.

HPCA Stadium Pitch Report
The pitch in Dharamsala has been a belter for the batters but there’s a little more help for the pace bowlers. With short boundaries and a good surface to bat on, the ball will come onto the bat nicely, the wickets are fresh, and with a bit of cloud cover, the contest might just be even with the bat and ball.
The last game played here between Punjab and Delhi showed that it was a belter of a wicket to bat on. Delhi posted a mammoth 213 runs on that and Punjab almost went down chasing it. The pitch will remain true throughout and both the teams will have a chance to win it. 7 wickets were picked by pacers and a solitary wicket for the spinner.
