RPS would also look to avenge their massive 97-run loss they suffered at the hands of DD earlier this season. Adam Zampa is likely to get a game as Imran Tahir - RPS’ leading wicket-taker - has left for national duty.
Overall, RPS lead 2-1 (vs DD), with both their wins coming last season. The stakes are bigger for Rising Pune Supergiant tonight.
