PBKS vs RR Dream11 Today Match Prediction: Rajasthan Royals were not terrible in the first half as the common perception says. They were hit by injuries and any team missing players of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer’s caliber would be handicapped but they still managed to punch above their weight and won 3 games in their first 7 matches. They could have won the game against Punjab Kings as well in their season opener as they were tantalizingly close to win the game.
Punjab Kings did some horror mistakes in the first leg and would be looking to rectify those in this leg in UAE.
Arshdeep Singh bowled a brilliant final over to restrict Sanju Samson who was playing one of the best innings in IPL history to buy PBKS a victory. It is never an easy job to defend 12 runs in the final over of a T20 game against a well set batter let alone Sanju Samson who was timing the ball beautifully that day.
Arshdeep Singh enjoyed bowling in UAE in 2020 and he was impressive in the first leg in India and he would like to continue his good form in the second leg as well. He will have to again bowl in all the phases along with Mohammad Shami.
The odds are surprisingly in favor of Punjab Kings for this game but Rajasthan Royals have a pretty strong playing XI when compared to Punjab Kings on paper. RR have a good mix of pace and spin power hitters while PBKS don’t have a very good pace power hitter barring KL Rahul unless they play Aiden Markram.
The lower middle order of PBKS is stronger when compared to RR provided PBKS play Fabian Allen but the death bowling department looks secured for RR with Chris Morris and Mustafizur Rahman while PBKS lacks big time there.
