KXIP vs RR Dream11 Team |  Kings XI Punjab vs Rajasthan Royals Preview & Prediction | Fantasy Team & Team News

Kings XI Punjab will host Rajasthan Royals in their next match in Indian Premier League. Both the teams are performing below expectations and the time is running out for them to make the playoffs. Rajasthan Royals, in particular, are entering the do or die phase where they need to win as many matches as possible to stay alive.

The KXIP vs RR Dream11 Match Preview

The last time these teams played against each other saw one of the most controversial events to happen in the history of IPL. R Ashwin, the captain of KXIP, dismissed Joss Buttler of RR by ‘mankading’ and the cricket world came in hard with their opinions. Some said it was against the spirit of the game while the other supported Ashwin by stating that whatever he did was a part of the cricketing rules.

The match which got marred by the controversy was won by Kings XI Punjab in the end. Understandably, Rajasthan Royals and Buttler, in particular, will be fueled by the fire of revenge for this match. The visitors should make the most of the emotion to register a win.

Meanwhile, KXIP will work hard to win at home and jump up a few places in the table.  KKR’s loss against CSK has opened up the race to the second place wide and KXIP will hope to get involved in the equation.  The home team has 8 points from 8 matches so far. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have just 4 from their 7 matches.

History of the fixture – The two teams have played 18 matches against each other.  Rajasthan Royals have won 10 of them while Kings XI Punjab have won the remaining 8.
