Punjab Kings begin the second phase of their IPL 2021 campaign by taking on a spirited Rajasthan Royals in the 32nd match of the competition on Tuesday, September 21. Both sides are currently level of points but Rajasthan have an advantage as they have played one match less than their opponents on Tuesday. Despite having big names like Chris Gayle, Mohammed Shami and also Nicholas Pooran, Punjab have failed to exert their dominance in the competition. They began off with a cheeky four-run win against Rajasthan Royals but have blown hot and cold ever since. KL Rahul's side have failed to capitalise on their wins and maintain any sort of momentum and on Tuesday, he would expect his side to ensure that they don't put any wrong foot against Rajasthan Royals.
