Jaipur (PTI): Hosts Rajasthan Royals will look to regroup and get back to winning ways after their unexpected loss to lowly Pune Warriors, when they take on Kings XI Punjab in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match here on Sunday. Aiding Rajasthan in their quest will be the home crowd and the track at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium. But skipper Rahul Dravid and his men will first have to put the loss to Pune behind. The team selection will surely be a brainstorming exercise for the hosts because of the fitness of the likes of Shane Watson, Shaun Tait and Rahul Shukla and the resurfacing of the 'slap gate' controversy, which might have affected medium pacer S Sreesanth, who tweeted 44 times in a two-hour span yesterday. This could have a bearing on the selection of the playing XI. Rajasthan Royals had begun the tournament with back-to-back convincing wins but were pegged back a bit after their humiliating loss to Pune, who had broken their eleven-match losing streak with a seven-wicket victory.
