Talking about head to head, KKR has a heavier pan. With the absence of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer in the team, Rajasthan’s team has failed to establish the right combination so far this year. At the same time, Kolkata Knight Riders had a tremendous fight against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their last match. Andre Russel scored 54 runs in 22 balls in that match.
These players will be watching
Nitish Rana batted well in the beginning of this season, but after that it seems that his batting has been noticed. Nitish Rana’s bat has become silent. As the tournament progresses, this KKR batsman must come into form. The sooner Rana comes in form, the more it will be beneficial for KKR.
Andre Russell, after batting brilliantly against CSK in the last match, has told that he has come in form. Andre Russell was required to be in form. Russell has the power to win the match alone. Andre Russell will be seen in this match.
RR captain Sanju Samson scored a brilliant century in the first match but after that his bat has calmed down. Sanju’s absence from form is a matter of concern for Rajasthan. It is very important for Sanju Samson to be in form. Today’s match will be interesting to see what amazing Sanju’s bat does.
Chris Morris has not done anything special in the IPL yet. In such a situation, everyone’s eyes are on Chris Morris.
