A middling performance from the batters and bowlers have pushed Punjab Kings to the bottom half of the points table. A superb rear-guard action and explosive hitting from the lower order, especially Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma helped the Kings take the game till the final ball of the match. However, they didn't get support from other batters, especially top-order batters. A left-heavy bowling attack, Punjab bowlers haven’t been able to dictate terms with the ball in hand. Except Rabada and Arshdeep, other bowlers are not able to run through the opposition batting order. The Kings would like to come back to their winning momentum.

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals are having a fantastic season until the last game. The Royals opened their season with four straight wins. It would have been 5 in a row, but Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia staged a comeback of epic proportions in the death overs to take Gujarat Titans over the line, handing Royals the first defeat of the season. After the openers went early, Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag played magnificent innings that helped Rajasthan to post a huge total of 196. However, their loss in the previous match came down to the lack of execution of the death bowling. The Royals would like to be back on the winning track.
