The second match of Sunday’s doubleheader will be played between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals. Both the teams will face each other at Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore. The match will begin at 08:00 PM.
Kings XI Punjab who are sitting at 4th position with 5 wins in 8 matches lost by 6 wickets in the last game against Mumbai Indians at the same ground.
Rajasthan Royals, on the opposite, lost by 4 runs against Delhi Daredevils in the rain-affected match. Rajasthan Royals are currently bottom placed with 3 wins in 8 matches so far. They would be desperately looking for a win to improve their position.
So, let’s move forwards to KXIP vs RR team news and KXIP vs RR dream11 prediction.
Rajasthan Royals are expected to stick to same playing 11 that fielded against Delhi Daredevils in the last game. Although they lost the last game management has no reason to tinker the combination.
In Punjab, a couple of changes may take place. Bringing in Yuvraj Singh, Axar Patel and M Stoinis didn’t work for them. Mohit Sharma might rope in at someone’s place.
Risky players: Yuvraj Singh might make way for M Tiwary and Axar Patel might make way for M Sharma

Punjab mainly relies upon their two opening batsman- C Gayle and KL Rahul for scoring runs. The duo is the leading run scorer for Punjab and is also the reason behind their couple of wins.
In bowling, Ankit Rajpoot has been outstanding so far. Apart from him, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Andrew Tye, and skipper R Ashwin will be crucial with the ball.
In Rajasthan, Jos Buttler and D Arcy Short were excellent in the rain-affected run chase. Coming up the order, Jos Buttler blasted 26-balls 67 while D Arcy Short contributed 44 of 25 balls. Apart from these two, Sanju Samson’s inning will also be crucial.
In bowling, Jaydev Unadkat took 3wickets in the last match while Jofra Archer and Dhawal Kulkarni will be crucial.
Both the teams are coming after losing their last encounter. While the main strengths of KXIP are C Gayle and KL Rahul, Rajasthan looked pretty good with Joss Buttler opening the innings and taking the charge. This might be the combination they were searching for since game 1.
Both the teams would be looking for a win. As per our PNJ vs RAJ Dream11 predictions, it is an evenly poised game.
