Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Prediction & Betting Tips 2023

This would be the third T20 game that would be played at the venue and looking at the two games that were played here it looked a great wicket to bat on. Considering the fact how well both sides have batted this season, we expect this to be a high scoring game and total runs would be over 349.5.

With Liam Livingstone likely to miss this game after he suffered a hamstring injury, Punjab Kings lack the firepower which is essential in this format. On the other hand, even with the inconsistencies at the top for RR, their middle order has performed in every game thus far which makes us believe they would score more sixes than PBKS in the upcoming game.

Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Betting Odds

Rajasthan Royals to have a better opening partnership than Punjab Kings

Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings head into this fixture after a loss for both sides. Both sides’ top order has struggled for consistency this season which could play a key role as we head into the business end of the campaign. Even though Rajasthan Royals have had a brilliant start thus far, they have managed an opening stand of 13, 9, 10, 0 and 32 which showcases they struggle at the top order. On the other hand, Punjab Kings have managed an opening stand of 34, 17, 102, 13, 2 and in three of the last four matches they have conceded a bigger opening partnership. Even though Rajasthan Royals have a similar record thus far, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler are a far better opening pair especially with Jaiswal scoring 24 off 19 balls in the last game. We believe Rajasthan Royals would have a better opening stand in the upcoming game.

Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Kings Top Batters

Shikhar Dhawan to be Punjab Kings’ top batter

Shikhar Dhawan has faltered in the last two matches against GT and SRH, regardless we are going to stick with him once again as he has had a solid start to the campaign and with 152 runs, Dhawan is the leading run scorer for Punjab Kings this season which makes him our top pick in the upcoming game.

Riyan Parag to be Rajasthan Royals’ top batter

This was supposed to be a breakout season for Riyan Parag and he has not disappointed. He has been instrumental for Rajasthan Royals this season and with 261 runs, he is the leading run scorer for RR this term which includes three half centuries in five games which makes him our top pick in the upcoming game.

Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Top Team Bowlers

Arshdeep Singh to be Punjab Kings’ top bowler

After a couple of underwhelming games for Punjab Kings, Arshdeep Singh had a brilliant game against SRH as he ended the game with bowling figures of 4/29 and was the top wicket taker on the day. With eight wickets, he is the leading wicket taker for PBKS which makes him our top pick in the upcoming game.

Yuzvendra Chahal to be Rajasthan Royals’ top bowler

Yuzvendra Chahal continued his brilliant form against Gujarat Titans as ended the game with bowling figures (2/43) in the game. He has been one of the most consistent players for RR this season and with ten wickets, he is the leading wicket taker for RR which makes him our top pick in the upcoming game.

Our Prediction

Favorites to win

Rajasthan Royals

Even though Rajasthan Royals surrendered their winning run against Gujarat Titans they have been dominant this season and have a better head to head record against Rajasthan Royals in this tournament. The bookmakers have favoured RR in this game and have given odds as low as 1.75. We believe you should do the same as RR would bounce back and bag maximum points come Apr 13.
