PBKS vs RR: Tense Situation at HPCA!

RR would be harmed by the loss of Jaiswal, who was batting well. Hetmyer is on a roll, but he’ll need some strong help from the opposite side. Parag takes the field, although he hasn’t been in terrific form. Perhaps today will be his big night this season. RR must score 47 runs off 21 balls to overtake RCB’s NRR. Royals are 141/4 after 15 overs.

PBKS vs RR: Padikkal dismissed at the halfway mark!

Fifty and Out for Padikkal! But this has been a very impactful knock! The one which ensured Rajasthan Royals stay in touch with the required rate! They need 102 runs in 8.3 overs effectively for NRR! Punjab Kings are eliminated realistically now! Rajasthan Royals are 86/2 after 10 overs. The history suggest that PBKS vs RR game is never a straight-forward finish!.. What’s in store in the last 10??

PBKS vs RR: A good start for the Royals!

Despite losing Buttler early, Rajasthan Royals have scored at 9.50 runs per over in the powerplay. Devdutt Padikkal was sent up to counter the swing and he has done a decent job tonight! He is striking them just under 200 tonight! Jaiswal has been very fluent, just like the whole season! RR are 57/1 after 6 overs and need 131 runs in 84 balls to win! They need to score these in 75 balls to beat RCB on NRR!

Hat-trick of ducks for Jos Buttler!

It has been a season to forget for Jos Buttler! Just a season ago he was smashing centuries for fun, but has been way far from his best this season! Buttler is pinned in front the wicket by Kagiso Rabada for his fifth duck of the season, and third in a row! The moment the ball struck his pad, he started walking! A good start for the Kings and Devdutt Paddikal walks out to bat at no.3 for the Rajasthan Royals! RR are 16/1 after 2 overs.

Jos Buttler in IPL!

2016-2022: 1 duck

2023: 5 ducks

Also, No batter has recorded five ducks in a season!

Impact Player (PBKS): Nathan Ellis is the Impact Player for Punjab. He replaces Prabhsimran Singh

PBKS vs RR: 46 runs in the last two overs!

Punjab Kings have finished strong at Dharamshala! It was Chahal and Boult bowling last two overs and they have went for 46 runs! Chahal conceded 28 runs in the penultimate over. A mature anchor by Sam Curran and late-blitz by Shah Rukh Khan has given Punjab Kings 187/5 in 20 overs. 190 is considered par at this ground as ball swings early and powerplays are hard to score off!

The target for Rajasthan Royals is 188 runs in 120 balls. The Royals need to chase this in 18.3 overs or fewer to overtake Royal Challengers Bangalore on NRR. Punjab Kings need to bundle out Royals under 70 runs to have a better NRR! Rajasthan Royals have a better chance realistically but they are chasing a little more than they would have liked!.. The two teams on show tonight have produced many close encounters in recent times! Will we see another one tonight??. What will happen?.. The second innings is coming up with the answers!

PBKS vs RR: Royals in control!

Just when Jitesh Sharma turned the game on, Saini deceived him with a slower one! And the wicket pushed Punjab Kings on the back foot again! Sam Curran and Shahrukh Khan in the middle and they need to provide a big finish! Punjab Kings are 117/5 after 15 overs and they need 180 minimum to put Royals under pressure! Anything less is a cake walk for Royals batting-order! It’s a matter of one big over where they take 20-25 runs.. Can PBKS do it?.. The last five overs coming-up!

PBKS vs RR: PBKS recover from early blows!

Navdeep Saini cleaned up Liam Livingstone immediately after the powerplay! Saini has justified his selection so far with some disciplined bowling! He has scalped two big wickets in Atharva Taide and Liam Livingstone. Sam Curran and Jitesh Sharma are rebuilding the innings and Rajasthan bowlers are making their work tough with accurate bowling. This is a solid batting track and PBKS do need 190 at least to make a game out of it! Jitesh is starting to tee off! PBKS are 78/4 after 10 overs. Can these two pull a rescue act for Punjab Kings?

PBKS vs RR: Kings lose three in the powerplay!

Trent Boult removed Prabhsimran Singh on the second ball if the innings! Shikhar Dhawan and Atharva Taide took the attack back to the RR new-ball bowlers but now both have been dismissed. The last two overs of the powerplay have yielded only 6 runs. PBKS are 48/3 after 6 overs. A similar start for Punjab Kings, just like the last game!

PBKS has won six of its first thirteen games and is now eighth in the points standings. RR have won six of their thirteen matches, placing them sixth in the points table. The outcome of this game may not have much of an influence on PBKS’ prospects of qualifying for the playoffs, although RR will keep their qualification hopes hanging by a thread if they win the game.

Royal Challengers Bangalore humbled the Rajasthan Royals with a heavy defeat in their previous encounter at their home venue in Jaipur. Punjab Kings were defeated in a tight game that ebbed and flowed throughout.

What to Expect?…. The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium’s surface is ideal for batting. The ball swings a little in the early overs, but things settle down as the game develops. Anything near 200 is a fantastic total, and bowling first is great because Dew may play a big role in the second half of the match.
