IPL 2020: Five Players to Watch Out for in RR-KXIP Clash

Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab have had a good time in the tournament so far and are in the top half of the points table at the moment. The reason for their success has been their entire team contributing in the match, and once these teams face off on Sunday, same will be expected from them.

Cricketnext takes a look at the players who hold key in the upcoming encounter:

KL Rahul

Punjab skipper KL Rahul is in sublime form and hit a majestic ton against RCB in the last match. He took the bowlers to the cleaners and smashed 132 from just 69 balls. Once again, something similar will be expected from him. Apart from that, he has impressed with his captaincy and work behind the wickets. Gautam Gambhir has already called him best IPL player.

Jos Buttler

Rajasthan will be pumped up with the availability of Buttler, and he is an automatic selection in the playing XI. He had excellent previous two seasons with the Royals, and would look to continue his form. Suddenly with his presence, RR look like a formidable team. Last year he played eight matches and scored 311 runs.

Jofra Archer

The England pacer has been excellent so far in this season, and has got some wickets too. Though it has only been one match for them, but Archer has been a proven performer for the Royals over the years. Once again the onus will be on him to get wickets upfront.

Mohammed Shami

Shami, by far has been the best bowler in the tournament. He has troubled batsmen with pace and bounce, and is looking hungry for wickets. It will be exciting to see how he fares against Sanju Samson, who has been in tremendous form in the IPL.

Sanju Samson

This wicket-keeper batsman has been doing his best for the last few years to cement his place in the Indian side. But this year looks like Samson's season and he has started with a brilliant fifty. If he can back it up with similar performances, he will certainly make the cut.
