Indian Premier League, 2019 | Rajasthan Royals  vs Kolkata Knight Riders PREVIEW

RR vs KKR  Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Jaipur, April 07, Sunday at 08:00 PM IST

Looks like Kolkata Knight Riders have found the ultimate match-winning formula in the name of Andre Russell. The Jamaican power-hitter was once again on the task of rescuing his side as he bombarded 7 maximums in his 13 balls finishing knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Riding on Andre Russell’s 13-ball unbeaten 48, Kolkata Knight Riders registered their third win of the season against RCB yesterday and are travelling all the way to Jaipur for their next assignment.

The second fixture of Sunday’s doubleheader will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders at Sawai Man Singh Stadium in the night. While KKR has managed 3 wins and one defeat in four outings, the hosts have managed just one win four encounters and would be desperate for another win.

Placed bottom second, Rajasthan Royals started their campaign with three consecutive defeats. They opened their account by 7 wickets win over RCB in the last encounter and would be looking to continue their momentum. Playing in the home conditions, RR does have an advantage but they have a serious threat in the name of Andre Russell in the opposition.

Placed third, Kolkata Knight Riders have managed three wins in four encounters, courtesy Andre Russell’s havoc in each game. Their only defeat came against Delhi Capitals and that too in Super Over. The clash also brings an exciting contest between Andre Russell and Jofra Archer- RR’s death over specialists. Till then, let’s have a look at team news, probable playing11 and head to head stats.

In wicketkeeper, Joss Buttler can be a better pick as he comes up the order but Dinesh Karthik can sometimes prove out to be outstanding. You can pick any one of the two based on the points in the kitty.

In batsmen, Sanju Samson and Nitish Rana are the two most consistent batters in this season from both the sides. Both have scored plenty of runs in four encounters so far.  A Rahane, R Tripathi, R Uthappa and Shubhman Gill are the other options you can pick.

In all-rounders, Ben Stokes, Andre Russell and S Narine are must-have picked. All the three are the game changers.

In bowlers, Jofra Archer, Kuldeep Yadav, Shreyas Gopal and P Chawla will be perfect bets.
