With Mike Hesson taking over as coach and Steve Smith back in action, Rajasthan Royals will be hoping to utilise the big sums of money they spent at the auctions when they face Kings XI Punjab in their opening clash in Jaipur on Monday. Rajasthan Royals have an outstanding record in IPL matches at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur; their win-loss record reads: won – 29, lost – 11. Kings XI Punjab have never won a match in five visits to the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.
Ravichandran Ashwin-led Punjab side would rely heavily on their openers Chris Gayle and KL Rahul to provide them a fiery start and if swashbuckling West Indian opener happens to be in his elements, the Kings XI may be able to draw the first blood. Skipper Ashwin would be desperate to prove that he can still make a difference in this format. Steve Smith returns to playing XI of Rajasthan Royals. Kings XI Punjab have lost KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal.
