Rajasthan Royals will gear up for their first game of IPL 2019 as they take on Kings XI Punjab. The Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur will host the 4th game of the season on March 25. Keep reading to find out the IPL 2019 RR vs KXIP Match 4 Prediction.
The Royals will sport a new look this season. Putting aside their traditional blue jersey, they will don the pink color this year. The pink color will be synonymous for Jaipur which is also known as the Pink City. Last year, they lost in the Eliminator against Kolkata Knight Riders. However, the Ajinkya Rahane led side will be boosted by the return of Steve Smith and would love to go the distance.
On the other hand, Kings XI have plenty of new faces amongst the rank. But they will rest on the trusted shoulders of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle to deliver with the bat. Their skipper Ravichandran Ashwin will spearhead the bowling attack. His captaincy would be one to watch as he pulled off some innovative stuff last year.
