It's a battle between wicketkeeper-captains, as KL Rahul's Punjab Kings - they used to be Kings XI Punjab earlier - take on Rajasthan Royals, to be led by Sanju Samson this season.
For the Kings, it's yet another opportunity to get things right from the start, and make a dash for the title, which they have never won. They are likely to open with Rahul and his Karnataka team-mate Mayank Agarwal, with Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Moises Henriques and Riley Meredith likely to be the overseas foursome in the XI. And we might get our first sighter in the IPL of Shahrukh Khan too, and that should be fun. Not to forget Mohammed Shami's likely reappearance since fracturing his arm in Australia.
Much of Samson's bowling plans would have been centred on Jofra Archer, but he isn't here yet. But Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler are, as are Chris Morris and Andrew Tye, who are expected to shoulder much of the burden in Archer's absence.
