RR vs PBKS Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the fourth match of IPL 2021.
The fourth match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings in Mumbai tomorrow.
While Royals would want to commence the league with an eye on their first title since IPL 2008, Kings will enter another season without a title under their belt.
With England fast bowler Jofra Archer set to miss the first half of IPL 2021, Rajasthan’s newly-elected captain Sanju Samson and team director Kumar Sangakkara have an enormous task of plugging that gap. Punjab, on the other hand, have roped in a couple of Australian pacers in Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith and would be wanting to make the most of the Australian pair this season.
As recently confirmed by Sangakkara, RR are yet to finalize their opening pair for tomorrow’s match at the Wankhede Stadium. As far as PBKS are concerned, their opening combination of captain Lokesh Rahul and Mayank Agarwal look set. However, it would be interesting to see if they include recent recruit Dawid Malan in place of Universe Boss Chris Gayle or not.
