The second contest of the Sunday doubleheader is the clash of the two out-of-form teams – Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals.

The clash is also a ‘must win’ scenario for Rajasthan Royals. They have been disappointing and have won only 3 out of 8 fixtures. In their last encounter, they lost to DD by a thin margin despite 26-ball 67 by Buttler at the top.
