Kings XI Punjab are set to play Rajasthan Royals in their first match of the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) in Jaipur on Monday, 25 March. Led by Ajinkya Rahane, the Royals, will open their campaign at their home ground – the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

Punjab, who failed to reach the play-offs last year, are expected to perform on a different note this year after retaining, as well as pocketing, some valuable players in the auction.
The two teams have played each other 17 times. RR have won 10 times, while KXIP have come up trumps six times. One match ended without a result. Here’s all you need to know about the RR vs KXIP match to be played today.
