The fourth match of the season will be played between Rajasthan Royals taking on Punjab Kings on 12th April 2021 at Mumbai. New Season with New Changes and both the teams have changed quite a look towards the team.
Talking about the Punjab Kings they renamed their franchise name from Kings XI Punjab. The franchise has changed their name and logo with few fluctuations since 13 IPL Seasons. Now it might be a hope for good signs for lifting their maiden IPL Title.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals had named a new skipper of their new edition and this time Sanju Samson is going to lead the franchise. It will be interesting to see him In the role of skipper.
Both the teams didn’t have a quite good season in the previous edition and struggled a lot in the tournament. Rajasthan Royals ended their IPL-2020 Journey by spotting at 8th place while Punjab Kings at 6th Place.
Before the commencement of their match, Rajasthan Royals had a huge blow as their star player Jofra Archer won’t feature the team due to injury and might miss the whole season and another seamer Mustafizur Rahman will also miss the first two matches for the team that is against Punjab Kings on 12th April and Delhi Capitals on 15th April due to quarantine norms as he reached India on 1st April from New Zealand.
So it will be a major concern for the RR Camp to select the possible playing XI.
Punjab Kings had a good auction for IPL-2021 as with the likes of Dawid Malan, Jhye Richardson, franchise looks even more strong and it will be interesting to see How KL Rahul keeps the team combination ahead for their opening match against RR.
Punjab Kings is still in a search of their maiden title and would try to get over that while Rajasthan Royals has one IPL Title in their name that is of inaugural edition-2008, Sanju Samson and co members will aim to break the 13 year No-Title Streak to name their second title for their franchise.
