Preview:

After losing a string of matches in the first half of the league stage, Punjab have been on a roll, winning matches on the trot and making their way back into the contention for the playoffs. They were pitted at the bottom of the points table for a considerable amount of time, but have now risen to the 4th spot, staging a great comeback.

Rajasthan, on the other hand, have had an on and off-season so far and are just on the brink of missing out for a place in the top 4 at the end of the league stages. In their last match, Rajasthan emerged out to be the victorious. But, in this match, scoring a win would be a difficult task for them as Punjab would be putting in all of their efforts to get to a win.
