In Match 65 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, the Rajasthan Royals (RR) will be locking horns with the Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on Wednesday (May 15). RR are on the verge of securing a spot in the playoffs, but their recent performances have seen a significant slump. This match is crucial for RR to regain their form and ensure their place in the next stage of the tournament.

On the other hand, the PBKS have already been knocked out of the season, joining Mumbai Indians (MI) as the second team to be eliminated. Despite their disappointing run, PBKS will aim to finish their bitter season on a sweet note by winning their remaining games. A victory against RR would not only boost their morale but also allow them to end the season with a sense of accomplishment.

RR vs PBKS: Head to Head Record:

RR and PBKS have faced each other 27 times since the inception of the IPL in 2008.
Rajasthan clearly holds the comfortable lead with 16 victories, whereas Punjab have only won 11 matches.

In their last game at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in 2023, PBKS merged victorious by 5 runs.
Both teams have displayed competitive fervor in recent meetings, making their clashes highly anticipated by cricket fans.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) Overview:

RR have had a rollercoaster season, with a strong start followed by a dip in form, losing their last three matches. Despite Riyan Parag‘s impressive performance in the previous match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the team struggled due to a lack of support from other batters. However, the bowling unit, led by Yuzvendra Chahal with excellent support from Ravichandran Ashwin and Nandre Burger, displayed a commendable effort, taking the game to the 19th over. RR will be hoping for their bowlers to maintain their good form and for the top-order batters to provide crucial support in the upcoming match.

Ravichandran Ashwin
Trent Boult
Avesh Khan
