RR and PBKS have met each other on 27 occasions. The Royals lead the head-to-head record with 16 wins in the bank.

Former champions Rajasthan Royals will look to extend their dominance in the playoffs race as they take on Punjab Kings in their second home ground at the Barsapara Stadium, Guwahati. The Sanju Samson-led side has sealed a top-2 finish in the IPL 2024 after losing three games on the trot. While a loss may not hit their playoff chances, the side will look to win its last two games and move to 20 points to fight for the top spot.

The Royals will play in the absence of their in-form batsman Jos Buttler who left the side to join the England team for the upcoming series against Pakistan. The former winners are likely to opt for the services of another English player in the form of Tom Kohler-Cadmore in the opening unit.

The Barsapara Cricket Stadium has been a batting-friendly track in T20 matches where the teams have preferred to post a healthy total early on. However, the ground will host its first IPL match of the season. Last season, the ground hosted two IPL matches where both matches were won by teams batting first.
