Final Results:

Rajasthan Royals (152/7) Beat Punjab Kings (147/8) BY 3 Wickets In Mullanpur on Saturday. Yashasvi Jaiswal 39, Shimron Hetmyer 27*

Yet another thrilling clash unfolded between these formidable adversaries! Following the first innings, Rajasthan Royals appeared to hold a commanding position, but Punjab put up a resilient fight. Opting to bat first, Punjab struggled to gain momentum with the bat. Ashutosh Sharma, entering the fray as the Impact Player at number eight, displayed a stellar performance, notching a brisk 16-ball 31 to propel his team's total close to the 150-run mark on a sluggish pitch. In response, Rajasthan cruised through the powerplay without losing a wicket, albeit scoring a mere 38 runs in that phase. Kotian, occupying the top order, encountered difficulties and perished in the ninth over. While the required run rate remained manageable, Rabada's two quick scalps (Jaiswal and Samson) in successive overs injected tension into the proceedings. The Punjab bowlers valiantly applied pressure to unsettle the Rajasthan batters.

Toss Update:

Rajasthan Royals win the toss and opt to bowl first against Punjab Kings in Mullanpure. Sam Curran will be leading PBKS as Shikhar Dhawan has picked up a niggle. Liam Livingstone is back for Punjab, and Atharva Taide comes in for Dhawan.

The Royals will be missing two key players in Jos Buttler and Ravichandran Ashwin. Rovman Powell and debutant Tanush Kotian will play as their replacement.
