Having gained winning momentum now, Indians look as formidable as they were before the tournament on paper. As far as Royals are concerned, they still have to address at least a couple of spots in the Playing XI. Having started the tournament on the back of two thumping wins, RR wouldn’t want to register their third consecutive loss.
