Here we have to discuss PBKS vs RR Playing 11, Match Preview, Pitch Report And, Fantasy Cricket Winning Tips & Injury Updates For Match 52 IPL-2022, Live score and Points table of IPL 2022
Rajasthan Royals(RR) will try to overcome their batting shortcomings and get back on the winning track in the IPL match against Punjab Kings(PBKS) on Saturday. The team of Royals was once giving tough competition to Gujarat Titans (GT) for the top spot but recently its performance got disturbed. He will now face Punjab after losing to Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) and Mumbai Indians(MI).
RR - Rajasthan team under the captaincy of Sanju Samson is currently in third place in the points table. The main credit for this goes to Jos Buttler, who has scored the highest 588 runs in the current tournament so far. On the other hand, Mayank Agarwal-led PBKS - Punjab Kings would like to continue their winning campaign to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Two other top-order batsmen Devdutt Padikkal and captain Sanju Samson have been able to perform well in pieces. Both of them need to take more responsibility. The team has been trying out different players at number four and if Shimron Hetmyer is fielded at this position, then its top four batsmen can tear apart any bowling attack.
Rajasthan need to score big in position to bat first as they got three out of four losses when they did not score big while batting first. Rajasthans bowling attack is strong but their bowlers were unable to defend the scores of 158 and 152 in the last two matches.
It was definitely a low score as Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Sen, and Pramukh Krishna, who is currently the highest wicket-taker in the tournament, bowled impressively. It will not be easy for the Punjab batsmen to face the bowling of the Royals. Punjabs batting lacks consistency. Shikhar Dhawan is currently the most successful batsman in the team. Liam Livingstone and Bhanuka Rajapakse have also batted well in the middle but they need to put together a good game.
Jonny Bairstow has not been able to bat explosively according to his fame, while Agarwals bat is also not working, which is a matter of concern for the team. In the last match, Punjab bowlers did well to restrict Gujarat to less than 150 runs. Kagiso Rabada returned to form with four wickets each in the last two matches. Arshdeep Singh has bowled very well for Punjab. He hasnt taken many wickets but has bowled economically.
The match between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals will be played under harsh sunlight. The pitch at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has been helpful for the batsmen. However, the spinners have also managed to show their strength here. Considering the depth of batting of Punjab and Rajasthan, high-scoring matches are expected to be played here. So far 13 matches have been played here and most of the matches have seen big scores being scored. Here the last match was played between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, where the score went beyond 150 runs. Looking at the batsmen of Punjab and Rajasthan, the score of 170 is expected to be crossed here.
