In match number 50 Rajasthan Royals will take on Kings XI Punjab in their penultimate game of the league phase at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. The men in pink are coming off an impressive win against the defending champions Mumbai Indians and would love to continue that winning momentum as they head towards the climax of the round-robin stage of the tournament.
Kings XI Punjab have won five games on the bounce and are the in-form team of the IPL currently. The Royals’ first game against the Kings was one for the ages, that featured one of the most surreal and exemplary innings in the history of the IPL. Both teams are coming off important wins and would hope to once again put on a show for the masses in what is one of the most important games of the season yet for the two sides.
The Royals continue their sojourn at Abu Dhabi in what is their final league game at the venue. It’s two wins from three at the Sheikh Zayed stadium for Steve Smith’s side and they would look to continue this strong performance in the clash against the Kings.
