Both teams would like to take advantage of their strengths and make sure they have the valuable two points at the end of this match.
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Jos Butler has shown why he is regarded as one of the most dangerous batters in T20 cricket. He struck every ball that came his way and showed his power and skills for the Rajasthan Royals in various matches over the years. This is why he may be the best batter of the match between the Rajasthan Royals and the Punjab Kings.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
For several seasons now, Arshdeep Singh has been a standout bowler for Punjab Kings. He has also been in good form this season. He would like to keep up the same approach and make sure he emerges as the top bowler in the contest between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.
The 66th match of the TATA Indian Premier League 2023 will take place on May 19 from the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Stadium in Dharamshala and pit the Punjab Kings against the Rajasthan Royals. The game will be broadcast live for viewers at 7:30 pm on the Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile device.
The HPCA Stadium, which is situated in the valleys of Himachal Pradesh, is one of the most stunning stadiums in the entire world. Due to the location of the stadium, the Pacers frequently benefit from the field. The pitch also has a predictable bounce, which the batters will find useful after the first few overs. Additionally, the pitch offers assistance, and the set hitters are free to use their own strokes. If you play between September and March, the dew also affects the evening significantly. Teams prefer to chase at this location because of this.
Today’s match prediction: Final Thoughts
It is expected to be a cracker of a contest as two strong teams will be against each other and both teams would like to make amends and get a win. The form and the merits suggest that Rajasthan Royals might emerge victorious but Punjab Kings will look to give a tough fight.
