Date: 27th September 2020 (Sunday)
Time: 7:30 PM IST.
Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah
Pitch and Conditions:
The pitch in Sharjah is expected to be a bowler’s graveyard yet again. The short boundaries will make it tough for the bowlers. Spinners may extract something out of the surface. Sharjah encourages big hitting with a relatively flat wicket.
The Royals’ bowlers, barring Jofra Archer, were expensive last time and they’ll have to take care of the same. The temperature will be around the 24 degrees Celsius mark with the humidity mostly in the low-60s.
While both teams won batting first last time out, neither won the toss. While it goes against the norm, it would not be a surprise to see a team choosing to bat first this time.
Rajasthan Royal expected Team:
Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (wk), Steve Smith (C), Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat
Kings XI Punjab expected Team:
KL Rahul (C & WK), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle/Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Karun Nair, Sarfaraz Khan, James Neesham, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Sheldon Cottrell
