KKR vs RR Dream11 Prediction for Match 56 of IPL 2023

Kolkata Knight Riders go head-to-head against Rajasthan Royals in the 56th match of the Indian Premier League at Eden Gardens Kolkata on 11th May, Thursday at 7:30 PM IST.

Kolkata Knight Riders won their game quite convincingly in the last game. Punjab were cruising at one stage, but it was their bowlers that tied them down and restricted them to 179. Varun Chakravarthy showing how worthy of a bowler he is and stepping up for the team when Sunil Narine is struggling for form this season.

In the run chase, Rahmanullah Gurbaz got out inside the powerplay, but Jason Roy contributed with a blistering 38. It was the skipper, Nitish Rana who stood tall and notched up a fifty. However, Kolkata found themselves in trouble at one stage, but Andre Russell and Rinku Singh’s partnership shut the door for Punjab and eventually won the game by 5 wickets.

Rajasthan Royals went down in a high-scoring thriller. Sunrisers Hyderabad came up with a heist where they hunted down a total of 215. Batting first, Rajasthan put up 214, thanks to a blistering knock from Jos Buttler who missed out on a well-deserved century. Sanju Samson joined the party and made a mockery of Sunrisers bowlers. It was with the ball that things went haywire for Rajasthan.

Chahal, the pick of the bowler of the last game for them picked up 4 wickets and Rajasthan were heading to seal the game before Glenn Phillips arrived in the middle. He clobbered Royals bowlers to all parts of the ground and scored a quick-fire 25 off 7 balls.

Suddenly Royals were under pressure, Sandeep Sharma bowling that final over succumbed to it and bowled a no-ball of the final over which Abdul Samad should’ve gotten out, but the next ball went to free-hit and Samad didn’t miss the second chance and hit a boundary to seal the game. It was agony for Rajasthan but they should take the positives out of the game and come out hard in this contest.

Bowlers will need to bring their variations in a smarter way. The average first innings score is 183 and teams winning the toss usually opt to bowl first and try to restrict the opposition.

Eden Gardens’ pitch proved yet again in the last game that it’s a belter to bat on. The ball comes onto the bat nicely and the bowlers are put to the sword. 3 wickets were picked by pacers while spinners scalped 8 wickets.
