Rajasthan Royals were the title winners in the very first season of IPL. However, they have not been able to repeat that success again. They have failed to qualify for the playoffs in the last two seasons. Earlier, they lost in the eliminator in their comeback season in IPL 2018. On the other hand, Punjab Kings would hope to improve their previous performance. Last year, their start was miserable but made a good comeback later on.
Head to Head record:
These teams have met in 21 matches so far in IPL, of which 12 have been won by Rajasthan Royals, and the rest 9 by Punjab Kings. These two sides have never met in an IPL playoff match.
