IPL 2018: Royals face a must-win situation against KXIP

Royals have won just 3 matches so far this season.

Key game for Rajasthan to stay in the contest.

Rajasthan Royals face a must-win situation against Kings XI Punjab when they play against each other in Indore. Punjab is coming into this match on the back of a loss against Mumbai Indians. Heading into a crucial stage of the tournament, with the race to make it to the playoffs heating up, Kings XI will be hoping for a quick turnaround as they take on Rajasthan Royals in their second home game in Indore.

Royals on the other hand, find themselves at the bottom of the points table. The Royals are on a bit of a losing streak which they need to address. They find themselves in must-win situation in every match that they play from here on. 

As far as team changes from both camps are concerned, there is a speculation to bring in Manoj Tiwary in place of Yuvraj Singh who has been going through a rough patch. There is also a possibility that the Kings tinker with their bowling attack.
