It’s a clash of two underachievers. Punjab Kings, the biggest auction spenders vs Rajasthan Royals looking to start afresh under a new captain in Sanju Samson.
Experts have suggested that while Punjab is stronger team and Rajasthan lacks experienced players Rajasthan has advantage of home ground due to lack of audience. Rajasthan has almost no fab base are used to no cheer for its players and are hence self-motivated while Punjab players would want to have its fans on the ground cheering for the team. Due to Covid restrictions games are played with empty stadium giving Rajasthan players feel of home grounds.
Cricket Expert Akash Chopra has said that it’s an opportune moment for Rajasthan to win the IPL title. “The second wave of Covid is blessing in disguise for Rajasthan Royals” said another cricket expert.
