RR Team news

Their main bowler, Jofra Archer, is all set to miss out on the first few games, as he has undergone surgery just a few days back. Sanju Samson will lead the Rajasthan Royals this year, he has been a part of the time for so many years now and has been given the captaincy job. Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes will probably open for the team or Jaiswal could open as well. The biggest buy of IPL; Chris Morris, will be a part of this team and he will be hoped to go out there and perform very well for the team.

Injury update, unavailability: None

Jhye and Meredith will be confident to out their best for the team with Jordan and Shami.

Who will win today match

Rajasthan Royals will win this game. They have a decent squad and would have to put their best performances and be able to win this game. It will all come down on the batting order, who will have to perform. Buttler and Samson will be the two key players in their batting order. Their bowling will be lead by Morris in the absence of Archer, who could have been dangerous to Punjab’s batting order. Punjab’s bowling, as well as batting, is very lethal and they can also win this game. It will be interesting to see which team wins the Rajasthan vs Punjab Dream 11 prediction.
