PBKS vs RR IPL 2021, Match 32, Match Preview: Punjab Kings will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 32nd match of IPL 2021 on Tuesday. The two teams are sitting at the bottom half of the points table. Rajasthan Royals have managed to win 3 matches out of seven and thus find themselves at fifth position on the points table at the end of the first half of the tournament. Sanju Samson scored the bulk of their runs. Unlike previous years, Samson has been consistent this season.
He leads the run-chart for the Royals this season, scoring 277 runs in 7 matches at an average of 46.17. With the ball, Chris Morris has lived up to his billing. He was the wicket-taker in chief for Rajasthan in the first leg of the tournament, picking 14 wickets in 7 matches. Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer will continue to miss the second half this season and Jos Buttler has also made himself unavailable for the second leg. Rajasthan Royals, however, have made some notable inclusions Tabraiz Shamsi, Glenn Phillips, Evin Lewis and Oshane Thomas.
Punjab Kings, on the other hand, have won 3 games in 8 matches. Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul have made the bulk of the scoring. KL Rahul is currently the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament, scoring 331 runs in 7 matches. Mayank has amassed 260 runs in 7 matches. The likes of Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran and Moises Henriques endured disappointing returns.
The franchise would hope that they turn up with good returns in the second half of the tournament. With the ball, Mohammed Shami and Chris Jordan are likely to share the fast bowling duties. They have included Rashid Khan to bolster the spin bowling department. Both the teams find themselves at the bottom half of the table and would be keen to reach the top four.
