The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been extremely entertaining this year in 2019, not less than it is any other season. Today, we have another interesting battle between Kings XI Punjab, who are currently #5 on the points table. They will be hosting Rajasthan Royals who are even further down at #7, with only 2 wins in 7 games thus far.
After a quick start to their IPL 2019 campaign, Punjab have slowed down a little with two consecutive losses, while Rajasthan are coming off a successful chase against Mumbai in Mumbai, securing a victory after a string of losses.

- Head to head, RR lead KXIP 10-8.
One important change that is expected or Punjab is bringing Hardus Viljoen back into the team, who missed out with illness in the last game. After winning the Purple Cap with 24 wickets last year, Tye has been expensive in IPL 2019 and he will be dropped. Pick Chris Gayle as he had a brilliant game in the reverse fixture and is coming off a 99* in the last game against his former team RCB.
All eyes will be on Ravichandran Ashwin, who dismissed Jos Buttler ‘mankaded’ in the reverse fixture. There will be a lot of eyes on Ashwin and I back him to prove himself. With the likes of Murugan Ashwin and R Ashwin himself in the side, we’re expecting the spinners to be bowled early and Jos Buttler to be dismissed early.
We’re all waiting for Ashton Turner to get a game in IPL 2019 and Ben Stokes missing out in the last game due to injury was the perfect chance. However, Royals went in for Liam Livingstone, who bowled only one over and scored only 1 run at #6. If Stokes is still unfit, Turner will make his IPL debut and if that happens, pick him. He will solve their middle over woes with some classical counter-attacking.
Very quietly, Shreyas Gopal has become a game-changer for the Royals. He has 8 wickets so far this season but has made an impact every time he has been brought on. Pick him and also pick Ajinkya Rahane, who looked good in the last game. He hasn’t been a popular fantasy league player as he isn’t a T20 batsman, but Rahane has over 340 runs against Punjab, the most for anyone in KXIP vs RR games.
