In the Indian Premier League on Sunday, when Kings XI Punjab will play their third match, the Rajasthan Royals, who were excited in front, beat Chennai Super Kings in their first match. Kings XI Punjab captain Lokesh Rahul had a record innings of 132 not out with the help of seven sixes in just 69 balls during his 97-run win against Royal Challengers Bangalore. During this time, however, he got life twice by missing a catch from the captain of the opposition team, Virat Kohli. The 28-year-old Rahul holds the record for the highest score by an Indian player in IPL history and would like to continue this form on a ground whose boundaries are small on all sides. Mayank Agarwal, who is seen in color from the last two matches, will also be eyeing. Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell would like to make up for his five-run score in the previous match. In the bowling department, Mohammed Shami and West Indies Sheldon Cottrell led the fast bowling department for Kings XI Punjab while leg-spinners Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin took three wickets each against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The return of the first match hero Sanju Samson and Jose Butler will further strengthen the Rajasthan Royals team. Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals would like to continue this winning rhythm after registering a morale-winning win. There will also be competition to score the most sixes between the two. Young Samson hit nine sixes during his 32-ball 74-run knock to the tune of CSK bowlers at the same stadium, and then pacer Jofra Archer also hit four sixes in the final over. Rajasthan captain Steve Smith also hit an innings of 69 off 47 balls, he is expected to open the innings with Yashasvi Jaiswal while Smith will replace David Miller in the batting order. Tom Karan and Jofra Archer will then join a combination of four foreign players. The Royals team managed to defend their 216-run score well with Archer bowling brilliantly in the death over and leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia (3 for 37) sent the top-order to the pavilion. Karthik Tyagi or Varun Aaron may get a chance to replace Jaydev Unadkat.
