PBKS vs RR: In the second phase of IPL 2021, the match between Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings is going to be held today. The captain of this team is Sanju Samson and it is important for him that his team wins today’s match. The team has only six points and the chances of going to the playoffs are alive, for this it is necessary to win today’s match. However, from the first phase till now, many changes have been made in the team.
The special thing for this team is that the players who have been considered the strength of this team, have now become a problem for this team. England’s three star players Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes were once a part of this team’s playing XI in every match, but now the situation has become that all three players are out of the team. Along with this, now there is no Andrew Toy in the team.
However, the good thing for this team is that Liam Livingstone is joining the team and he can prove to be a master stroke for the team. At the same time, Evin Lewis is also in the team. Rajasthan Royals will try to secure a place in the playoffs once again after 2018.
As far as the team’s playing XI is concerned, the team has three options for the opener, the captain himself being Sanju Samson, Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal. It is understood that in this particular match, only Sanju Samson and Evin Lewis will enter as openers. The way Livingstone has performed in the past,
it should be understood that he will play a match-winning innings for the team. There are not so many foreign players, so David Miller’s place in the team is almost confirmed. Whatever money the team has spent on the most expensive player of IPL, Chris Morris, they have to show that Rajasthan Royals have not done any wrong thing by adding him with them.
As far as bowling is concerned, players like Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakaria and Mustafizur Rahman can prove to be the trump card with the team. However, the players who are not there, their lack will play. The team’s captain Sanju Samson has done well in Phase 1 and it should be believed that he will continue, if this happens, then alarm bells can be rung for Punjab Kings. The team has six points at the moment and Rajasthan Royals will have to win five matches from here, only then the place in the playoffs will be confirmed, less if and but condition will apply. Meanwhile, it can be said that today’s match will be very exciting.
