IPL 2023 PBKS vs RR Match 66: Fantasy Team, Playing XIs, Pitch Report, Injury Update and Head to Head Record

Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals will square off against each other in Match 66 of the Indian Premier League on Friday, May 19 at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. This is the last league match for both the teams. Punjab are eighth in the points table six victories and seven defeats from 13 matches. The stats are similar for the Royals, have won six and lost seven from 13 games. Currently, the chances for both the teams to make it to the playoffs are little to none.

This will be the return fixture between the two teams. When the two teams met earlier in the tournament, Punjab won by five runs. Prabhsimran Singh and Shikhar Dhawan scored half centuries to take Punjab to a first innings total of 197 for 4, which was successfully defended by their bowlers. Nathan Ellis picked up four wickets to help defend the target. For Rajasthan, Sanju Samson top scored with a knock of 42 while down the order, Shimron Hetmyer and Dhruv Jorel also played good cameos, but were unable to take the team to the finishing line.

Punjab have struggled in the last few games largely due to the fact that the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada have not been able to deliver the kind of match winning performances they delivered in the first half of the season.
