Team News for Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS)

The biggest asset of the team is Ben Stoke’s magnificent form and his all-round performance. He picked up his form at the right time bringing Pune so closer to Play-off round. His performance will be crucial to his team’s cause tomorrow. However, after tomorrow’s match – Stokes will leave for national duty.

Until now, RPS have won four out of the six games at home. They will try to repeat their successful performance one more time. Leg spinner Adam Zampa’s four-over spell will be crucial as he is the one who can stop the run-flow of Punjab. Jayadev Unadkat’s medium pace bowling will be another factor to watch out for. If he gives away anything more than 8 RPO then KXIP can comfortably put around 180+ run on the scorebard.

Team News for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)

Team Punjab’s performance will largely depend upon how their fast bowling duo of Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma will perform tomorrow. They are the ones who can provide an initial breakthrough to RPS’s team. Also, Axar Patel’s left-arm-orthodox bowling at crucial juncture will be a key to Punjab’s bowling. His batting will be also vital for the team down the order.

Without Amla and Miller, Punjab will have to cautiously bat tomorrow. Kiwi opener Martin Guptill is expected to open the innings alongside Vohra with Shaun Marsh, Maxwell and Saha are set to follow. Punjab have won its two previous matches and will try to outsmart RPS tomorrow as well.
