Punjab Kings won the toss and opted to bat first against Rajasthan Royals in the 52nd match of the ongoing IPL 2022 season at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday.
Currently, at the seventh spot in the points table, Punjab need to keep winning in order to keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the playoffs. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals are at the third spot with 12 points and they would look to peak at the right time to cement their place in the top four.
Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal are the current holders of the Orange and Purple Cap and the duo have been a big reason why Rajasthan have tasted success this season. Punjab would have their hands full in order to stop the duo at Wankhede.
Punjab Kings: Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal(c), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma(w), Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh, Sandeep Sharma
