KKR vs RR Team Previews

Kolkata Knight Riders

Aaron Finch, Venkatesh Iyer, Baba Indrajith, and Harshit Rana were all brought back into KKR’s batting lineup for the previous match, as well as Harshit Rana, who made his debut. The Delhi Capitals had no answer for them as they cruised to a convincing victory.

In the previous match, only three KKR players scored in excess of ten points. Those three players were Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, and Rinku Singh. If we had to pick a KKR batsman, we would go with Iyer, Rana, or Russell.

Despite his tendency to perform better under duress, Iyer did spend some valuable time at the wicketkeeper’s end. You can also put your money on him to get on base.

You never want to write off an Andre Russell-led team, but with the top-order struggling and the presence of two of India’s best spinners, things could get tough for KKR once again.

With Umesh Yadav and Sunil Narine in command of the bowling, the team has been on top of the world with the new ball! However, the rest of the team’s bowling attack is a concern. It’s hard to know what to expect from Tim Southee, Harshit Rana, or Andre Russell because they are all untested.

You should also keep in mind that the current state of the team is not good.

Rajasthan Royals

In the previous match, the Rajasthan Royals were defeated by the Mumbai Indians. For the most part, Jos Buttler appeared to be struggling to find his rhythm but ended up with six sixes to his name. The inning showed the kind of damage he can do even if he only spends a few minutes at the crease each time.

As a result, RR has been reduced to just five batsmen, with Riyan Parag filling in at number 6. In recent games, we’ve seen their batting put to the test because of this risky strategy. Of course, with the likes of Buttler, Samson, and Hetmyer in top form, the team is more than capable of scoring big totals.

Otherwise, there will be some debate about Devdutt Padiakkal’s and Daryl Mitchell’s place in the batting order.

Samson and Buttler’s current form suggests that placing a bet on them to hit a six is a safe bet. Rajasthan Royals’ top batsman could be either of these two players, depending on your preference.

The Rajasthan Royals’ bowling line-up is a model of excellence. While Ashwin, Chahal, and Boult have already established themselves as top-tier T20 players, Prasiddh Krishna and Kuldeep Sen appear to be ready for the international stage as well.

This is where RR has the opportunity to make a big difference in this game. Even though Daryl Mitchell scored a lot of runs in his previous game, we still consider him a valuable all-rounder to have on the team.

Because of its success, Royal Rajasthan has acquired the best Indian players from all sides of the auction.

So far, the cricketing conditions in Mumbai have been exceptional. Despite being used on a daily basis, the pitches have held up exceptionally well and allowed the batsmen to play freely. Just one day before this game, the Wankhede had seen over 400 runs scored.

As a result, the spinners may be brought into play a little more by the use of a different pitch from the square. Although the Wankhede is a high-scoring ground, teams should aim for at least 170 points in order to be considered successful.

KKR vs RR Betting Tips

The Rajasthan Royals are our pick to win this game. There is some scepticism because KKR has lost five games in a row, but that will change sooner or later. Teams in the Indian Premier League are simply too good to keep losing time and time again, and the T20 format is no exception. But based on current form, strength, and balance of the two teams, Rajasthan Royals are superior in every way to Kolkata Knight Riders.

Make a bet on the Rajasthan Royals to triumph.
