====================================================================================

Kings XI Punjab needed a miracle to win their last match against Bangalore and the miracle occurred in David Miller who hit a splendid century to lead his team to a much needed victory. They will be hoping for the same magic from their frontline batsmen this time around too. Shaun Marsh and Mandeep Singh will be expected to contribute a lot more and not leave the team stranded after getting fine starts. On the bowling front Parvinder Awana and Praveen Kumar will have to fire along with Piyush Chawla.

Rajasthan Royals have been very impressive this season. Their captain, Rahul Dravid, has led from the front and the advent of new players such as Sanju Samson and Stuart Binny has added to their performance. Ajinkya Rahane’s consistent performance with the bat has been vital to their success. Bowling has been a bit of concern for the Royals and they will be looking to sort it out in today’s match.
