PBKS vs RR

Match Preview

Punjab Kings will be up against Rajasthan Royals in the Match 32 of IPL 2021 on 21 September at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, UAE. Royals were in 5th place in the points table with 3 wins in 7 matches before IPL 2021 was delayed earlier this year in May due to the COVID-19 pandemic, whereas Punjab Kings were in 6th place with 3 wins in 8 matches. Both RR and PBKS will be looking for victories as they try to secure a play-off berth, which is already a difficult assignment, and one more setback will make moving into the top four even more difficult.
