The 3rd match of the second phase of IPL 2021 will see Punjab Kings go up against Rajasthan Royals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on September 21 (Tuesday). Both teams will be desperate to make a winning start to the UAE leg as they aim for a top-four finish.
RR, who are currently placed fifth in the points table, will rely heavily on Liam Livingstone to put runs on the board for them. The English international has been in superlative form with the bat in recent times and would be keen to make his presence felt in the IPL.

The spotlight will also be on Evin Lewis, who joined RR as Jos Buttler’s replacement. He comes to the IPL in top form, particularly against the spinners which will boost the Sanju Samson-led side.
PBKS also had a start-stop campaign in the first half of IPL 2021. With time running out, they have to start winning games to make it to the playoffs. However, the KL Rahul-led side will miss Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith, as they decided to opt-out of the second phase of IPL 2021.
The attention will be on young Australian pacer Nathan Ellis, who took a hat-trick on his international debut and will now look to make IPL debut eventful.
