Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals will play the ninth match of IPL 2020 on Sunday. Both teams are coming off a win in their last encounters. With solid top-order line ups in both the sides, one can expect a promising contest, scheduled to be held at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Kings XI Punjab:

Kings Eleven Punjab

Kings XI Punjab registered an emphatic 97-run victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game. The match will be remembered for KL Rahul’s swashbuckling knock of 132 runs off just 69 balls. Ahead of the game against RR, KL Rahul will be one of the players to watch out for. His ally, Mayank Agarwal is also in terrific form. He played an outstanding knock in the first game but threw away his start against RCB. He would be hopeful of playing another stellar knock against Rajasthan.

The overseas stars Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Maxwell have struggled to get going in the tournament. However, leaving them from your fantasy eleven could be a risky proposition.

Mohammad Shami has led from the front for Kings XI Punjab in the tournament. He will be one of the biggest bets for Kings ahead of the game against Rajasthan Royals. Besides, Sheldon Cottrell has been brilliant with the ball as well. He picked 2 for 17 in three overs in the last game. Given that the spinners have found substantial success in UAE conditions, both Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi are expected to make telling contribution in the coming encounters.

 Rajasthan Royals:

All eyes will be on Sanju Samson when Rajasthan Royals will square up against Kings Eleven Punjab on Sunday. Samson scored a belligerent 69 off 47 balls against CSK in the last game. The fans just hope that he plays at least 3-4 more such knocks in the tournament.

Steve Smith too played a handy 69-run knock in the last game. For Rajasthan to ensure another victory, Smith’s role with the bat would be crucial. England batsman, Jos Buttler is likely to play his first game in this year’s IPL on Sunday. With so many batting stalwarts in both the sides, it’s going to be tough leaving out a few from your fantasy team.

Rajasthan Royals would be confident of Jofra Archer’s spell. However, other fast bowlers need to step up to the plate as well. Date:
