Rajasthan Royals are set to play their first of two matches of the IPL 2023 season at their adopted home of Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati against Punjab Kings. Both teams will arrive in the state of Assam with wins under their belt as RR smashed SRH by a massive 72-run margin.
While PBKS scrapped past KKR by 7 runs via the DLS method. Royals vs Kings has been one of the most underrated rivalries in IPL in recent years so we should expect a keenly contested match between these two sides on April 5 in the Northeast.

In their last 5 matches since 2020, the toss record between RR and PBKS stands at 3-2, while both teams lost the toss in their first match of the IPL 2023. So expect the toss call to be a close one and the Royals have a better chance to win it than the Kings.
Rajasthan Royals are on a high as they are the only team to win away from home after the first round of matches in IPL 2023 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. On the other hand, Punjab Kings had to battle their way to a win against Kolkata Knight Riders. For both RR and PBKS, their top order looks in great batting form, but the difference might be the bowling department where the experience of the Royals pips the Kings.
Powerplay Score and First Innings Score:
Barsapara Cricket Stadium is a relatively new facility where we haven’t seen a lot of T20 Cricket being played so far. But this stadium in Guwahati has seen its fair share of high and low scores already. That’s why the powerplay score here might have a big variance in the range of 44-56 and similarly, the first innings score might go up to 158-172.
