IPL Match 38, Pre Match Analysis: KXIP look to get back on the saddle against RR1 min read

KXIP VS RR

IPL 2018 | Match 38 | KXIP vs RR: Kings XI Punjab will look to get back to their winning streak as they play against the Rajasthan Royals at Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore tonight at 20:00 IST.

KXIP, led by Ravichandran Ashwin, faced defeat in the hands of Mumbai Indians but rise unscathed with no change in their position on the IPL points table. They will look to rejuvenate themselves, however, against the Rajasthan Royals who have been placed at the bottom of the table.

The Ajinkya Rahane led side will want to shoot upwards as the Mumbai Indians have and escape an early elimination. Jos Buttler will be expected to lead the batting front for the team after his record-placing 18-ball fifty. With just three wins of eight games, RR has everything to lose with the match tonight. They have been pushed into a must-win situation after two straight defeats.

KXIP will want to secure their position for the playoffs and have more potential of doing so. However, their unexpected loss against MI has not swayed them as they remain confident of their skill at the game. Marcus Stoinis raised their score above 170 in the last over and may be placed higher to get the chance to display his talent for a longer period of time.

Two teams who have faced two straight defeats look to redeem themselves tonight. Watch to find out who emerges victorious.
