Rajasthan led by new captain Sanju Samson will face KL Rahul led Punjab in match number 4 of the Indian T20 League coming your way from the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. While both the teams failed to qualify for the playoffs last season, RR at least have a trophy to show to their name for their efforts over the 13 seasons. Punjab, meanwhile, are still chasing their elusive title. Can a new identity (change in name) help them go the distance this year or will it be a new captain that will lead his side to glory after their heroics of the inaugural season? The journey for both teams will begin on Monday.

It was a contrasting season for both these teams last year in the Indian T20 League. While Punjab had got off to a poor start in the tournament and then stitched a few wins together to keep the hope of qualification alive, Rajasthan had a relatively good start before not being able to find a way to win matches. In the end, both the teams could not make it to the final four. Moreover, Rajasthan finished last and Steve Smith was removed as the captain of the team.

However, in a fresh start to 2021, both teams would not want to give an inch away to the opposition. While Punjab seemed to have great depth as well as options in their squad now, Rajasthan would also believe that their key players put up a rather consistent show this year and not run out of form into the second half of the league stage. Both teams could also have to sort out their batting orders with plenty of options available at their disposal. But given how Punjab played when they got it going for them last year and the experience of KL Rahul as captain, Punjab have a slight advantage.
