RR vs KKR Match Details
Apr 18 2018 – 08:00 PM IST
IPL 15th, T20 Match, Indian Premier League at Jaipur
|Kolkata Knight Riders|
Under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane, the team defeated Delhi Daredevils in the first rain-effected match and then defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore. In the previous match, Sanju Samson played 92 runs in 45 balls and the Royals would once again expect them to make a big innings. Apart from Samson, Rahane is also making good contributions in batting. Their bowlers also have the strength to withstand pressure. Rajasthan, on the domestic grounds, would not be easy to beat, but the hosts would have to avoid self- defeating against Kolkata because Dinesh Karthik’s led team defeated Delhi in a one-sided match.
In the top order in KKR, there are big hitter like Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine, and then Captain Dinesh Karthik, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana and Andre Russell are capable of giving big scores to the team in middle overs. There is also good balance in KKR bowling.
In addition to Sunil Narine, spinners Piyush Chawla and Chinnaman Kuldeep Yadav have the ability to curb any team’s batsmen. Shivam Mavi and Andre Russell are sharpening the pace attack
