Can the Royals halt Punjab's winning run in their battle for survival?

Oct 30, 2020 09:38 IST

Kings XI Punjab may have turned their campaign around with 5 consecutive wins but they need to continue that when KL Rahul's men face Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi on Friday. While Punjab still need to win remaining 2 games in order to book a berth in the playoffs, Rajasthan in addition to that will also have to look to improve their net run rate and then depend on other results to go their way. Giving them hope is Ben Stokes, who slammed a match-winning ton against Mumbai in the previous outing. Though Rajasthan hold a 11-9 head-to-head advantage vs Punjab, but beating them this time around won't be easy as the momentum is with the Kings XI. They may be on a roll but the Royals have no option but to come up trumps.
