May 19 2023


Series: Indian Premier League 2023

Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals, 66th Match 19th May 7.30 PM IST

Venue: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala

The Punjab Kings will be up against the Rajasthan Royals in the 66th game of the Indian Premier League 2023. Technically, both teams can qualify for
the next round, and this game will have high stakes. The Kings lost their last game against the Delhi Capitals. The Rajasthan Royals have hit a rough patch, and they come here after a loss against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
With the stakes high for both teams, expect this contest to go down the wire. The Rajasthan Royals have lost the last four out of five games.
Their batsmen have failed in the last two games, and there will be pressure on the side. The two sides have played once earlier,
where the Punjab Kings had won.

Punjab Kings Preview
Shikhar Dhawan’s side went down against the Delhi Capitals by 15 runs in the last game. They bowled poorly in the game and paid the price.
As they play their last game, they will need a massive win to finish with 14 points and improve their run rate. They have the firepower with the bat,
and Dhawan would like to see a better show from his bowlers.

Rajasthan Royals Preview
Sanju Samson’s side has won only once in the last five games. Their loss of form at this crucial stage is hurting the side. It has been big losses
for them in the last two games, and they went down against Royal Challengers Bangalore by 112 runs. They will need a massive win here and hope a few
other results will go in their favor for a berth in the playoffs.

Pitch Report
HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala, does offer something for the fast bowlers. The ball moves here, and it can create doubts among the batsmen.
However, stroke players have done well due to the smaller size of the ground. Spinners have to bowl tight lines, as the ball doesn’t turn
here as much on other tracks in the country.

key players PKBS : Atharva Taide, Liam Livingstone, Nathan Ellis, Arshdeep Singh

key players RR : Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult

Prediction: Rajasthan Royals to win the match
