RR vs PBKS: IPL 2023 Dream11 Prediction, Predicted Playing XI, Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings Squads for Today

RR vs PBKS: IPL 2023 Dream11 Prediction, Predicted Playing XI, Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings  Squads for Today

The Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) have played some exciting matches in recent seasons of the Indian Premier League (IPL). On April 5, Wednesday, they will face each other again in Guwahati for Match 8 of IPL 2023. Both teams won their first games this season, with Sanju Samson's team defeating the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), while the Kings narrowly beat the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a rain-affected match.

Neither team is expected to make significant changes to their playing XIs, although PBKS may have Kagiso Rabada available for selection. However, the introduction of the impact player rule and the option for captains to name their side after the toss result in IPL 2023 means that the predicted XIs may differ.

Devdutt Padikkal's place in the middle order is in jeopardy as he struggled against both pace and spin while batting at No. 4. The Royals may consider replacing him if he doesn't improve his form, but they are unlikely to do so early in the season. Kuldeep Sen was not included in the substitutes' list for the match against SRH, but he may be considered for the upcoming game in Guwahati. However, KM Asif performed well in the power play. After being brought on as a substitute, Navdeep Saini was very expensive. If needed, either Sen or Sandeep Sharma could step in for RR.

Reports suggest that Rabada is available for selection, which could result in Nathan Ellis being left out. PBKS will be happy to have Rabada's skills in the powerplay and as a strong bowler in the middle overs, but they will have to be cautious not to overuse him toward the end of the game. Aside from that, there are no significant changes expected. The overseas trio of Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Sikandar Raza, and Sam Curran performed well against KKR and will aim to cover for Livingstone's absence once again. If Punjab requires an additional pacer in Guwahati, Vidwath Kaverappa or Rishi Dhawan may step in. Another option is young all-rounder Raj Bawa.

Pitch Report

The playing field at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, formerly known as Feroz Shah Kotla, is known for its slower surface, but the outfield is speedy, and the boundaries are not too extensive. Therefore, the team batting first will strive to score around 170 runs to give itself a fair chance against the opposition in the chase. The pitch's sluggishness may benefit the spin bowlers, who can exploit it to their advantage.
