IPL 2019 Rajasthan Royals Vs Kolkata Knight Riders
Today its Rahane’s RR Vs Dinesh Kartik’s KKR at Jaipur.
Head-to-head 19 matches, RR-9, KKR-9, and one match had no result.
The temperature will reach just about 34 degrees, and the pitch is likely to favor batsmen.
About the game:
RR only with a single win in the season for sure will make an effort hard to find a break-through to win the game.
KKR will be willing to destroy RR team on their own home ground and reach the top of the table.
In RR if Sanju Samson has restored his form after injury, he is expected to join the team and replace Stuart Binny. Buttler and Stokes be supposed to show their potential to boost the team score. Rahane and Smith have got to contribute to the team through their bat and fielding to strengthen their side.
From the bowling side, Archer, Varun Aaron & Kulkarni have got to remove the KKR batsmen without letting them build partnerships.
In KKR of course, Russell would surely be a huge warning for the opposite team both during batting and fielding. With a good quality team, KKR’s openers must setup strong partnership during power play overs and make it trouble-free for the middle-order batsmen to score runs.
When it comes to bowling, Kuldeep, Piyush Chawla & Ferguson must observe the opposite batsmen’s weak areas and send them back to the pavilion so soon.
KKR have the likelihood to lead the game against RR as they have a healthier team setup. If RR were capable to eliminate the KKR batsmen right from the early stage, then they can formulate their second victory of this season.
IPL spectacular catch:
During 2014 IPL, it was Chris Lynn’s debut in KKR and RCB was eager to reach the target of 151 set by KKR, ABD at the crease and 3 balls were remaining with 6 runs required for RCB to win. ABD hit Vinay Kumar’s throw which seemed to be a sixer but Lynn at the deep mid-wicket slithered at the beginning and dived backward to seize a spectacular and hard to believe catch leading RCB to, unfortunately, lose the competition by 2 runs.
