PBKS vs RR: IPL 2023 team news

This is the last league game for both teams. Whichever team loses will be eliminated from the playoff qualification race, while the winning team will manage to stay afloat in the tournament.

Punjab will be back at Dharamshala after losing their previous game against Delhi two nights back. Nathan Ellis and Kagiso Rabada played in that game, although Rabada didn’t complete his quota of overs. With Atharva Taide performing well for them at the top, they won’t need the services of Bhanuka Rajapska and might look to bring Sikandar Raza into the XI in place of Rabada.

Rajasthan suffered an embarrassing defeat in their previous match against Bangalore. They played Adam Zampa in place of Trent Boult in that game keeping in mind the conditions and the strengths of the opposition. That might change tonight with Boult regaining his place in the XI in place of Zampa.

Rajasthan also brought in Devdutt Padikkal as their Impact Player after their batting collapse. If they get off to a good start tonight, they might bring in Riyan Parag as the substitute.

Punjab almost chased down a huge total the last time they played here. With Rajasthan coming off a huge defeat, and Punjab having the experience and knowledge of the conditions having played here two nights back, Punjab will start off as slight favourites.
