RR vs PBKS Betting Tips

  • Jos Buttler hit 54 runs from 22 balls in Match 4 and the opener is well worth backing as Rajasthan Royals’ highest run scorer against Punjab Kings. With the ball, Yuzvendra Chahal took 4-17 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and the spinner is our pick for Rajasthan Royals’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • Shikhar Dhawan has hit 47 IPL half-centuries and the skipper is our tip for Punjab Kings’ highest run scorer in this clash. Arshdeep Singh took 3-19 against KKR and has taken three wickets in two of his last three IPL matches. He is a strong choice for Punjab Kings’ top wicket taker against Rajasthan Royals.
  • The IPL runs keep on flowing for Jos Buttler. We recommend backing him to score over 31.5 runs in this match.

Rajasthan Royals are favorites to win

RR vs PBKS T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2023

After wins for both teams in their opening games of the 2023 Indian Premier League, Rajasthan Royals take on Punjab Kings in Match 8 on Wednesday evening in Guwahati. The Royals beat Sunrisers by 72 runs with the Kings defeating Kolkata Knight Riders by seven runs (DLS). Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium at 19:30 local time.

Rajasthan Royals went all the way to the final in 2022 and look to be one of the stronger sides again this year. They should have enough with the bat and ball to get another win in this game.

Punjab Kings have good variety in their bowling attack but are up against a very good batting line-up. We expect them to be competitive but may struggle to beat the Royals.

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

It was a powerful display from Rajasthan Royals in their opening game victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad and no injuries have been reported by the team management. As a result, we expect to see the same team selected for this game.

RR Key Players

  • Jos Buttler - The English right-handed opener remains in brilliant form across all series and has scored 288 runs from his last four IPL innings.
  • Trent Boult - The New Zealand left-arm pace bowler produced a brilliant opening over against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He produced a double-wicket maiden after dismissing Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal - The 32 year old leg-spinner won the Purple Cap in 2022 picked up the wickets of Mayank Agarwal, Harry Brook, Adil Rashid and Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Sunday.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin - We are expecting spinners to have a field day on this spin track. Ashwin can fetch a few wickets along with Chahal. In 185 matches, Ashwin has picked 158 wickets.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Navdeep Saini, Joe Root, Obed McCoy, Adam Zamp

Former England Test captain Joe Root could come into the team if the pitch is not as batter-friendly as expected. Navdeep Saini and Obed McCoy provide/m a pace bowling option with Adam Zampa offering spin.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals have won three of their last five IPL matches and four of their last five IPL group stage games.

PBKS Team News & Playing 11

PBKS Team News

After opening their IPL 2023 campaign with a victory for the third successive season, Punjab Kings will want to keep their changes to a minimum ahead of this match. Kagiso Rabada, who arrived in India on Monday, will come into the team with an excellent IPL record.

PBKS Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan - There are very few players who produce consistent IPL runs like Punjab Kings’ skipper. He hit six fours in Saturday’s win.
  • Arshdeep Singh - The left-arm pace bowler was not at his best during the 2022 IPL but looked back to top form in Saturday’s match. 
  • Kagiso Rabada - After missing the opening game due to international commitments, the South African pace bowler comes into the side needing one wicket to bring up 100 IPL dismissals.
  • Sikandar Raza: Raza has announced himself at the IPL in the first match after picking a wicket. We are expecting more from him in the upcoming match. He has the skills to smash those big shots and pick the crucial wickets.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Rishi Dhawan, Nathan Ellis, Matthew Short, Baltej Singh

Rishi Dhawan was used as an impact sub in the first game but conceded 15 runs from his only over with the ball. Nathan Ellis is likely to be left out for Kagiso Rabada but could still make an impact. Matthew Short is an excellent T20 batting option if required.

Who will win Rajasthan Royals vs Punjab Kings T20 Match?

After the way they dominated Sunrisers Hyderabad from the first ball on Sunday, it is no surprise to see Rajasthan Royals as heavy favourites with the bookies ahead of this game.

RR vs PBKS Top Team Batsmen

Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal are our batting tips for Rajasthan Royals. Samson struck four sixes and three fours in his innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Jaiswal struck his fifth T20 half-century in Sunday’s victory in Match 4.

For Punjab Kings, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Sikandar Raza are our batting selections. Raza has produced some excellent white-ball innings in international cricket over recent years. Rajapaksa hit 50 runs from 32 balls in the win over KKR.

RR vs PBKS Top Team Bowlers

For Rajasthan Royals, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult and Jason Holder are our bowling choices. Holder picked up a wicket and conceded only 16 runs from his three overs in the first game. Boult has taken 94 wickets from 79 IPL matches.

Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh and Sam Curran are our bowling picks for Punjab Kings. Curran can be expensive but very rarely goes wicketless in T20 cricket. Rabada will become the quickest bowler to 100 IPL wickets if he picks up a wicket over the next six matches.

🏆 RR vs PBKS Prediction

With both teams winning their opening matches, confidence will be high for the Royals and the Kings ahead of this game. When you consider that Kagiso Rabada will bolster an already strong bowling attack, Punjab Kings could be a real threat to Rajasthan Royals. However, the top order batting for the Royals is one of the best in the tournament. We are backing Rajasthan Royals to win a close match.
