PBKS vs RR record: While most of the matches have been one-sided with either RR or PBKS winning with dominance, in one instance, it as close as it could be. In IPL 2015, Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) edged out RR in the one-over eliminator.

Rajasthan Royals set a 192-run target for PBKS, batting first with Ajinkya Rahane scoring 54-ball 74 and Shane Watson hitting 35-ball 45. Two quickfire knocks of Karun Nair and Stuart Binny also helped. But Shaun Marsh with a 40-ball 65 set the tone for Punjab’s chase before David Miller scored 54 off 30 balls. However, that was not enough to achieve the target as the match ended in a tie. In the Super Over, PBKS set a 16-run target that RR failed to achieve after scoring just 6/2.
