Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Today Dream 11 Prediction Preview:
As the matchups between 10 teams are soon to close, the anxiety for playoffs is getting higher. The table is seemingly crunched at the middle-order with teams trying to move up, under close competitions, as an effort to register a berth in the top 4. Let’s dive into the PBKS vs RR Dream11 Prediction, Dream 11 Team Today, IPL Fantasy League, and match detail to learn more details below.
The 52nd match between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals is happening at a point when the IPL is observing do-or-die situations between the teams. The Kings’ win against Gujarat Titans in the last match showed its hidden ability to strike against one of the top teams.
Though Bairstow is yet to begin his natural bad-hitting knocks, Dhawan and Rajapaksa are seemingly a settled pair obtaining some good numbers. The presence of Agarwal in the middle-order makes Kings’ a stable team, besides Arshdeep Singh and Sandeep Sharma trying to establish momentum in plucking the wickets.
Meanwhile, the Royals’ are off their balance. They lost in their last two matches played against Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders. Despite Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson being relatively stable, the middle-order is yet to find its strong ground. Also, Yuzvendra Chahal’s attack spin has lost its sheen, even as, the fast bowlers like Trent Boult & Co suffering to add quick wickets.

New Players Availability:
The teams will play with their full potential.
As the game begins in the afternoon, the teams are expected to opt for bowling first after winning the toss. The dew factor can be considered as the primary reason for this. The pitch surface is favourable for the batsmen and spinners. As the dew factors set in, the seamers are likely to face more difficulties.
PBKS vs RR Probable XI:
Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, Mayank Agarwal (C), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh, Sandeep Sharma
Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (C & WK), Karun Nair, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen
Power Play scores:
An average projected Power Play score would be nearly 40 to 50 runs. Considering the previous matches, RR has more chances to score higher. Butter’s and Padikkal’s combination has proven some big numbers appearing on the scoreboard. Given this, more 10 to 20 runs can be added, especially when RR opts for first batting. Similarly, if Bairstow regains his natural batting style, then the PBKS Power Play score can reach 60 runs or above.
Death Over scores:
The team that bats first will look to use all the opportunities, especially on a deck that is not suitable for the team that bowls in the second innings. As this is the case, both PBKS and RR would use death overs to the maximum extent. The expected total scores during this period would be between 50 and 60 runs.
If the batsmen from both teams gain some momentum in the initial overs of the match, especially during the Power Play overs, the teams can reach scoring around 170 runs or beyond.
Who Wins Today’s IPL Match Between PBKS vs RR?
Likely, Punjab Kings have good chance to win the 52nd match with the team showcasing great strength after its win against GT. Dhawan and Rajapaksa played winning knocks with Liam Livingstone concluding with a 117 metres huge six. If both the bowling and batting departments work in tandem as per their earlier performances, then PBKS is likely to set the ball rolling in their favour.

PBKS vs RR Today Dream 11 Prediction:
PBKS is at seventh position in the IPL points table by winning five of the total 10 games played. Whereas RR is at the third position and it has lost four and won six games. If the batsmen of the top-order from the Kings’ team continue to perform, helping the scoreboard ticking since the beginning, besides the bowling team contributing with its full positive strength, then this match would fall in favour of PBKS. However, RR’s strong batting line-up and spin magic will try to give a tough competition. That said, it can be concluded by realising that PBKS has a little edge over RR in registering a win.
