The fourth match of the IPL will see Rajasthan Royals taking on Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 12th April.

The match between the two is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST. Star Sports will broadcast the match on TV, while the cricket live streaming of the game will also be available on the Disney+ Hotstar VIP app.

Preview: Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Punjab Kings (PK), 4th Match

Having finished on the 8th spot in IPL 2020, Rajasthan Royals made some notable changes in their squad ahead of the 14th edition of the league. The Jaipur-based franchise has spent a whopping sum of INR 24.20 crores to acquire the services of 8 players in the IPL auction, with Chris Morris being the biggest buy in IPL history. With the ability to hit the ball high, Jos Buttler will be a great opener for the Royals in the first IPL 2021 game. Also, Ben Stokes and Manan Vohra, who have played some great knocks for RR in the past, will be looking to post a good total for their side. With the likes of Shivam Dube and Rahul Tewatia handling the all-rounder unit, Rajasthan Royals has Jaydev Unadkat and Jofra Archer in its bowling department.

Their opposition, Punjab Kings has bought 9 players ahead of IPL 2021 – 5 overseas players and 4 Indian players. Punjab Kings suffered a lot in the initial stages in the absence of their star opener Chris Gayle, and they will ensure that they won’t repeat the same mistake again. Dawid Malan, who will make his debut in IPL 2021, will likely open alongside Chris Gayle. Speaking of their all-rounder unit, Deepak Hooda is the only good all-rounder Punjab Kings has. However, they’ve strengthened their bowling lineup by acquiring the services of Australian pacer Jhye Richardson. KL Rahul, who was the leading run-scorer in IPL 2020 with 670 runs in 14 innings, will be handling the captaincy duty for the side.
