Today’s and 4th match of the IPL 2021 will be played between RR (Rajasthan Royals) and PBKS (Punjab Kings) previously known as Kings XI Punjab(KXIP). The game will be starting at 7:30 PM April 12 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Both the team is waiting for victory in their 1st match.
The Rajasthan Royals’ bowling unit isn’t as powerful as Jofra Archer is recovering from a hand injury while Mustafizur Rahman won’t be available for the first game. However, the Royals can take heart from the fact that on the head-to-head, count, they are leading the Punjab-based team by 12-9.
As far as PBKS (Punjab Kings) is concerned, they roped in ICC’s no.1 ranked T20I batsman, Dawid Malan, but their bowling seems to lack a bit of experience. Both Punjab and Rajasthan are equally matched and a competitive game seems to be in the offing on Monday.

The pitch in Mumbai has been a batsman’s paradise and a bowler’s graveyard. The fact that dew is expected to play a part will make bowling an arduous task. Hence, batting second should be the way forward. The pacers are likely to get some assistance from the surface. The playing conditions would be clear with the temperature around 31 degrees Celsius. The humidity will mostly be in the 40s.
