The 4th Match of Vivo IPL 2021 will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings (Previously known as Kings XI Punjab) on 12th April 2021 at 7.30 PM Indian time.
RR vs. PBKS Dream 11 Preview:
This time, we will witness one of the big battles between two classy franchises, which is none other than Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings. This is the 4th Match of Vivo IPL 2021, which will happen at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. Both teams are equally strong and would be desperate to start the 14th season of IPL with a big win.
The bowling unit of Rajasthan Royals is not of full strength as the key bowler Jofra Archer is unfit and suffering from a hand injury. Mustafizur Rahman is another key bowler for RR who won’t be available for the first game. But the positive thing for Rajasthan Royals is on the head-to-head stats; they are ahead of PBKS as they are leaders in the battle with a record of 12-9.
This season we will see the young new captain Sanju Samsun from Rajasthan Royals; on the other hand, KL Rahul will lead the Punjab Kings team. Both teams are equally balanced, and this season Rajasthan Royals also added one of the key south African all-rounder, Chris Morris, to their squad.
Last season Punjab Kings faced a lack of bowling firepower, but this season they added Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith to improve their bowling lineup. Overall, IPL is a game of plan and execution with some amazing performances. Let’s see who will be the winner of this big battle.
