Fourth match for DLF IPL 2012 between Rajasthan Royals Vs KingsXI Punjab both the teams would be looking for a kick start in their first league match of DLF IPL 2012 at Jaipur. Fan following for both the teams going to be huge because of its gorgeous franchise owners Shilpa Shetty from RR and Preity Zinta from KingsXI Punjab.
Rajasthan Royals for the first time would be without their premium mentor Shane Warne; he has been perfectly replaced by the perfectly into the capable hands of Rahul Dravid as captain and the team coach. Though Rahul dravid has retired from the international cricket but his main challenge would be lead the young lads under his belt and bring out best out of their team mates.
Expected eleven for the match:
Rajasthan Royals (likely):Rahul Dravid (captain), F.Fazal, A.Rahane, B. Hodge, J.Botha, A.Menaria, S. Goswami, S.Tait, B.Hogg, S.Trivedi, S.Sreesanth.
Kings XI Punjab (likely): Adam Gilchrist (captain), P Valthaty, S.Marsh, D.Hussey, A. Nayar, P.Chawla, P.Dogra, R.Powar, N. Rimmington.
Players to look forward from both sides would be the Adam Gilchrist the captain of Punjab and how we can forget the hero the last year IPL 2011 P.Valthaty who really made the impact in the small format game. From the Rajasthan royals side batting department responsibilities in the hands of senior fellow Rahul dravid and J.Botha as well the power pack A.Rahane.
The home team would be having the upper hands and looking to clinch the victory from the opponent team.
