PBKS vs RR Prediction - May 07, 2022

Just when it looked that this edition of the Indian Premier League would finish on the expected lines, things started getting muddling in the middle of the points table. We now have five teams having either 12 points or 10 points to their names and none of the ten teams have qualified yet, at least mathematically. While Gujarat Titans will be looking to finish among the top two sides, the battle for the third and the fourth spot is growing with every passing match.

Up next in the tournament, Rajasthan Royals will be taking on the Punjab Kings in what is an important match for both these sides. The Royals have a foot inside the door guarding the playoffs but would need to win at least two of their remaining fixtures. Punjab Kings, on the other hand, are in the lower half of the ladder, but a win here will push them right back into the contention. This is, by all means, going to be a decisive match for both these sides and we expect them both to come out hard at each other.

The match between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals is to be played at the iconic venue of the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on 7th May 2022.

PBKS vs RR Team Previews

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings flipped almost their complete lineup coming into the competition but their campaign hasn't been too different from what it was like last year. They have struggled for consistency and that is apparent by the situation they are in at the moment. They practically can afford to lose only one match going forward and given the fixtures they have lined up next, it is not going to be easy.

At the moment on the ladder, the Kings are placed at the seventh spot with 10 points from as many matches. Going forward, they would not only have to gather some points but also improve on their net run rate of -0.229, which could come in handy as things get tight up ahead. A loss here would put them in a difficult spot and they will be desperate to avoid that in this match.

We saw the Kings make a few adjustments to their batting order in the last match with Jonny Bairstow coming up the order to open with Shikhar Dhawan. Even though Punjab Kings ended up winning the match, the promotion of Bairstow didn't really prove to be the solution that they were looking for. We expect them to persist with the change, given that Mayank Agarwal is a better player of spin and is, therefore, better equipped to handle middle-overs.

On paper, Punjab Kings have an excellent side with all bases covered. Shikhar Dhawan has played the role of anchor beautifully of late while Bhanuka Rajapaksha and Liam Livingstone have been terrific exponents of middle-over enforcers. A lot would depend on how the middle-order does for them, especially given the depth, or lack thereof, in the Kings' batting order.

On the bowling front as well, the Kings are a bit too over-reliant on Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada. Even though Arshdeep has been economical, he has not picked up wickets. Rabada, on the other hand, has been amongst the wickets but has been a tad too expensive. With Rahul Chahar's wavering form, the onus will be on Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada to lead the Kings' bowling attack against what is one of the most potent batting units of the competition.

Overall, Punjab Kings rely heavily on the individuals to turn up and it has been apparent with the way their matches have panned out. They would need their match-winners to contribute big time here and if that happens, the Royals will have their work cut out.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals started their wagon in a spectacular fashion, maintaining a position in the top two for most part of their campaign. However, they are beginning to lose a bit of steam as the tournament is progressing and their limitations are popping up. Having said that, they have been a tad unlucky with the toss and will be hoping to see the coin fall their way in the matches to come.

As it currently stands on the points table, Rajasthan Royals are placed at the third spot and another win here could push them to the second spot, thanks to their decent net run rate of 0.340. The thing that works against them is that a loss here will mean that they drop down into the mid-table muddle, which is something that they would be desperate to avoid, especially after the kind of start they had.

On paper, Rajasthan Royals have a decent unit with a power-packed batting unit coupled with an equipped bowling attack. While they have so far been carried well by Jos Buttler, they have a decent enough set of batsmen to follow in the middle-order who all can hit the ground running. Having said that, the issue with respect to the depth in their batting has been apparent. Also, they have been guilty of sending in Shimron Hetmyer a little too late in the last couple of matches.

On the bowling front, the Royals have done an excellent job with Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Ashwin being their stalwarts in the middle-overs. Although they were not able to defend the total in the last match, the effort that they put in was certainly commendable.

All in all, there isn't a lot that the Royals have done wrong and their position on the ladder reflects that. Another win here will boost their qualification chances massively and that is exactly what they will be aiming for. With the kind of form the likes of Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, Sanju Samson, and Yuzvendra Chahal are in, beating them will take some effort from the Kings.

PBKS vs RR Toss Prediction

Teams generally tend to bat second in this format but things can change when the conditions are as hot as they are here in Mumbai. Fielding first on a hot afternoon is really going to test the fitness and no side would want to try that. Also, the surface might get slower as the match progresses, especially with the sun baking down. For that and the reasons stated above, expect the captain winning the toss to bat first.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

This is a ground with short boundaries and the ball just flies of the bat. While scoring in the day game is not going to be as easy as it is in the evening games here, batsmen will still relish playing here. Spinners will come into the game as the ball gets older but defending in slog overs is not going to be easy. With dew not being a factor here, bowlers will be taking a sigh of relief. It is a hot day and surface might well start breaking up a bit towards the end of the match. In spite of all that it is expected to be a high-scoring match. Keeping all that into consideration, the team batting first would be targeting to score a total of at least 185 runs.

PBKS vs RR Betting Tips

Punjab Kings would be eyeing to get some consistency going in the back-end of the tournament and they cannot afford to take things lightly given the position they are in. The Royals too will want to get back to the winning ways and clear the minor blemishes that have popped up, of late. This will arguably be a battle between Punjab's middle-order and Rajasthan's spinners and the team that holds its nerves will likely come out on top. Considering how the two sides have done in the tournament so far and their respective on-paper combinations, a bet on Rajasthan Royals to emerge on top should be the way to go.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. 10CRIC


    Jos Buttler - To Score a Fifty - Yes



Rajasthan Royals have done incredibly well as compared to their run in the last seasons and one of the major reasons for that is the performances by Jos Buttler. Buttler has already smashed three centuries and looks good for one more. Having said that, the safe bet here would be bet on Jos to score a fifty and that seems to be a pretty lucrative prospect given the odds on offer.

  1. ComeOn


    Best Bowler - Rajashthan Royals - Yuzvendra Chahal



This is a day game and spinners will have a big role to play. They are also likely to draw some extra assistance from the surface. Rajashthan Royals have two of them, who both can be mighty impressive against a batting lineup that is full of overseas players in the middle. Considering that and the wicket-taking abilities of Yuzvendra Chahal, bet on Chahal to be the best bowler of the day for the Royals.

  1. 10CRIC


    Best Batsman - Punjab Kings - Shikhar Dhawan



Shikhar Dhawan was slow to get off the blocks but with a couple of decent knocks in the last few matches, he seems to be back at his best. Dhawan plays the sheet anchor role for the Kings and is unlikely to take any undue risks. For that reason, a bet on Dhawan to be the best batsman of the day for the Royals looks a good one.

  1. ComeOn


    Total Runs - Match - Over 319.5



This is a day game and although runs will not be as easy to come by as those are in evening games, this will still be a high-scoring ground. The boundaries are short and fall just flies of the bat here at the Wankhede. Also, the numbers suggest that it is going to be a high-scoring match. For that reason, a bet on match total to exceed 319 seems to be make a lot of sense.
