Date & Time: May 7th at 3:30 PM IST
Live Streaming: Star Sports Network and Disney+Hotstar
Punjab Kings will clash against Rajasthan Royals in the 52nd match of the IPL 2022 on Saturday. Punjab Kings had a good outing in the last game against Gujarat Titans where they sealed 8 wickets win in the end. Seamer, Rabada set up the things initially with the ball, and later collective batting heroics from Dhawan, Rajapaksa, and Livingstone steered them home comfortably. They are still very much in the playoffs contention and currently sit at the 7th spot in the standings with 10 points.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, are out of form at the moment having lost two back-to-back matches on the trot against Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians. They struggled to put huge runs on the board and settled for the marginal scores which affected them a lot. They mainly rely on Jos Buttler at the top of the order and Devdutt Padikkal’s inconsistency is a worrying thing. They still placed at the 3rd spot in the standings with 12 points.
