Indian Premier League 2020, Match 54
Date & Time: 01 November, 2020 at 7:30PM IST
Dubai International Cricket Stadium, UAE

Strength

Kolkata Knight Riders:

  • Even though all their batsmen haven’t been consistent enough, on their day they are a strong force.
  • From a world champion bowler in Pat Cummins to mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy, KKR has a lot of varied bowling options to choose from.

Rajasthan Royals:

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

  • In Buttler, Smith, Stokes, and Samson, they have one of the most dynamic top four that a T20 team could ever wish for.
  • Most of their young players who bat in the lower middle order can be very handy with the bat. Players like Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag provides much greater batting depth to RR.
  • In Jofra Archer, they have one of the best T20 death over specialist.

Weakness

Kolkata Knight Riders:

  • After the opening slot, KKR does not have any fixed position for any of their batsmen. This fluid approach may affect the stability of the team in the long run.
  • The form of Dinesh Karthik is a huge worry for KKR.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • RR’s bowling is a huge worry. The domestic bowlers must complement Jofra Archer big time.
  • Sanju Samson and Steve Smith are struggling for consistency. Apart from a few matches, they haven’t clicked so far.

RR vs KKR Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

The UAE conditions still haven’t given any clue to the captains on what to expect from each surface. Despite having large boundaries, Dubai has seen 200+ scores and has also seen close games, which even went down to the super over. Dew is a major factor of concern that’ll prompt teams to field first. It is also to be noted that even 200+ scores have been chased down on this pitch. That being said, considering the line-ups of both the teams anything below 180 should be easy to chase down.

If Rajasthan Royals bats first: 160-170

If Kolkata Knight Riders bats first: 150-160
