IPL Highlights 2024 PBKS vs RR: Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals: Shimron Hetmyer finished it off in style for Rajasthan Royals and helped them claim the two crucial points with a three-wicket win over Punjab Kings. In the last-over thriller, Hetmyer scored 10-ball 27* to take the Royals over the line with a ball to spare. The Punjab Kings bowlers did quite well and hung in there till the final over but in the end, it was not enough for them. Kagiso Rabada was the pick of the bowlers for them with the figures of 2/18 in 4 overs....Read More

Earlier, Ashutosh Sharma once again produced an impactful cameo with the bat to give Punjab Kings a fighting chance as they posted 147/8 in 20 overs. He scored 31 runs off 16 balls to help PBKS cross the 140-run mark which looked unlikely at the halfway stage of the innings. Keshav Maharaj and Avesh Khan were the pick of the bowlers for Rajasthan Royals with two wickets each.

Sanju Samson won the toss and elected to bowl against Shikhar Dhawan-less Punjab Kings at Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium, Mullanpur, Chandigarh. Dhawan missed the mega clash due to a niggle as Sam Curran took over the leadership charge for the hosts. Royals also missed their two experienced stars Ravichandran Ashwin and Jos Buttler due to injuries.

Sanju Samson's Rajasthan Royals are aiming to rebound from a disappointing defeat as they face Punjab Kings in the upcoming 2024 Indian Premier League match. After a strong start to the season, Royals suffered a setback when Gujarat Titans snatched victory in a last-ball thriller earlier this week. 

The defeat against the Titans revealed some tactical shortcomings for Rajasthan; key bowlers like Kuldip Sen and Avesh Khan struggled in the crucial 19th and 20th overs, conceding 35 runs in just 12 balls. Additionally, the decision not to utilise experienced campaigner Trent Boult fully was questioned, as the Kiwi pacer could have potentially influenced the outcome with his expertise in pressure situations.

Rajasthan will be looking to address these tactical lapses and regroup against Punjab Kings, who have displayed inconsistent form in the tournament so far. Punjab's batting lineup has been reliant on sporadic contributions from players like Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma, with established names like Jonny Bairstow and Jitesh Sharma yet to hit their stride.

Sam Curran has been a standout performer with the ball for Punjab, but his impact with the bat has waned in recent matches. The absence of Liam Livingstone due to injury has further weakened Punjab's middle-order, highlighting the need for stability and depth in their batting unit.

On the bowling front, Punjab's Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh have shown promise but have struggled to contain runs consistently. Their ability to restrict Rajasthan's formidable batting lineup will be crucial in determining the outcome of the match.

Rajasthan, historically strong starters in the IPL, are wary of their tendency to taper off as the season progresses. Despite their promising starts, they have struggled to maintain momentum in previous seasons, resulting in limited playoff appearances. Avoiding a mid-season slump will be a priority for Sanju Samson's side as they aim to secure a playoff berth.

Both teams understand the significance of this encounter in shaping their respective campaigns. Rajasthan will be eager to bounce back and consolidate their position near the top of the table, while Punjab seeks to build momentum and address their inconsistencies.

IPL Live Score 2024 PBKS vs RR, Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals: Despite winning four out of five matches, Sanju Samson has not utilised his resources well this season on a couple of occasions.

Royals controlled the match for the major part of it but lost control in the last overs where Kuldip Sen and Avesh Khan leaked too many in the final two.

IPL Live Score 2024 PBKS vs RR, Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals: ‘Big Star-Poor Show’ for Punjab Kings

IPL Live Score 2024 PBKS vs RR, Punjab Kings vs Rajasthan Royals: Opener Jonny Bairstow (5 matches, 81 runs) and middle-order batter Jitesh Sharma (5 matches, 77 runs) are the most underwhelming of the lot, and it has robbed them of momentum upfront and in the business end of their innings. Sam Curran has been above average with the ball, taking six wickets from five matches but the England all-rounder’s needle has fallen behind from the halfway mark with the bat, despite scoring a 63.

Punjab needed Jitesh to play a big knock to take them closer to the 184-run target but he failed to do sod. The wicketkeeper batter started off strong and hit a four and six but threw his wicket away in an attempt for a big shot.
