Matches: Rajasthan Royals v Kings XI Punjab at Jaipur
Series/Tournaments: Indian Premier League
Teams: India | Kings XI Punjab | Rajasthan Royals
Two of the greatest Test players of all time, both in their 40s, came together on a pitch that would look more at home in Test cricket, hard with an even sprinkling of the green. Rahul Dravid won the toss, and predictably decided to bowl against Adam Gilchrist’s Kings XI Punjab, who have never won in Jaipur.
Rajasthan Royals were forced to make a few injury-related changes, but they were also happy that Shane Watson was back. Dishant Yagnik was replaced by Kerala wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson. Offspinner Ajit Chandila took left-arm spinner Harmeet Singh’s place. Kings XI were unchanged.
