Dube is an important part of the RR setup with its overall capabilities and power play. He has scored 145 runs in the six games he has played this season, which is the third highest score for RR in IPL 2021.
The 28-year-old was also part of the Indian setup for the T20Is when a regular fast bowler all-rounder Hardik Pandya was out with an injury. He plays 13 T20Is for India in a period of only four months (November 2019-February 2020).
Rajasthan Royals led by Sanju Samson are currently in sixth place in the points table with three wins and six points from their seven games this season. While KL Rahul led by Punjab Kings is in seventh place with the same points but an inferior net interest rate. The last time RR played against PBKS, they ended up on the losing side in the 222-run chase where captain Samson scored an excellent century.
The match starts at 19:30 IST.
