RR vs PBKS

Mullanpur, April 13: They have almost similar journey so far in the Indian Premier League (IPL) since 2008. They have not performed consistently well in the last 16 years. Both sides have often lost crunch games and have shied away from winning at crucial junctures.

The only major difference is, Rajasthan Royals (RR) have played two IPL finals and have won the inaugural edition title. Otherwise, there is not much to choose between RR and Punjab Kings (PBKS).

But this edition, Rajasthan (before Saturday's clash with Punjab), still have four wins from five matches and were at the top of Points Table. 

But in a long tournament like IPL, that can change very fast. Unfortunately, RR have faced that in the past as well. They would be keen not to slip down in the Points Table, after being at the top initially.

This season, RR have lost only one match, when they blundered and messed up against  Gujarat Titans during the final stage of the game.  On the other hand, Punjab Kings were at the eighth position, with two wins in five matches. 

Before they meet each other in Mullanpur on Saturday evening in the 27th match of the IPL 2024, RR however, have slight edge over PBKS when past rivalry records are analysed.

Punjab and Rajasthan have faced each other in 26 matches in IPL. Out of these 26 games, Punjab have won 11 whereas Rajasthan have come out victorious on 15 occasions.
