Jaipur, May 7 (CRICKETNMORE) - Desperate to stay alive in the Indian Premier League (IPL), bottom-placed Rajasthan Royals will be aiming to avenge Sunday's six-wicket loss to Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), when the two sides face off in the 40th match of IPL 2018 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, here on Tuesday.

The Ajinkya Rahane-led side now needs to win all their remaining five matches to keep themselves alive in the tournament. Rajasthan have just six points with three wins from nine games while Punjab are placed third after six wins from nine games and 12 points in their kitty.
