In the fourth encounter of the IPL 2021 season Rajasthan Royals (RR) is all set to battle it out with Punjab Kings (PBKS) in historic Wankhede Stadium on Monday.

Punjab Kings, formerly known as Kings XI Punjab, has changed its franchise name this season in an attempt to put an end to its losing streak while the right-handed fiery batsman Sanju Samson has been appointed as the new captain of the Rajasthan squad.

The sides will vie for a win from 7:45 pm in the Mumbai-based Wankhede Stadium.

After the first three matches of this year's season, Delhi Capitals (DC) sit at the top of the table with the best run rate as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) share two points each.

After winning the toss, RR have opted to bowl first in what is to potentially be another high scoring contest at Mumbai's belter pitch.
