RR vs PBKS Key Players

Sikandar Raza

Sikandar Raza finally gets an IPL deal. He has been in really good form over the last two years and deservedly got his call-up. Now, with Sikandar Raza likely to fight for his spot with Liam Livingstone, opportunities may be few and that will leave Raza with a lot to do.

Jos Buttler

With three centuries and over 800 runs last season, Jos Buttler was in a league of his own. His form remains solid and the distance he goes this season will be interesting to see, given how he was nearly unstoppable with his batting last season.
