RR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: Rajasthan Royals (RR) after a record run-chase in their previous game against Kings XI Punjab are set to face Kolkata Knight Riders, who are also coming in this match after a comfortable win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. Royals are moving away from Sharjah, where they have enjoyed batting and have scored 200+ on both occasions, to Dubai and will have to adjust to the long boundaries. Royals have never won three matches in a row since 2015 and they have their task cut out as Kolkata brought their A-Game and we still haven’t seen IPL’s MVP, Andre Russell, fire with the bat yet. Both teams are blessed to have some world-class talent at disposal and their fight will be a visual delight for the fans.
Indian Premier League Season 13
Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders
Date – Wednesday, 30th September 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: The batters playing in IPL have made the mockery of the average scores the UAE grounds had and it’s not a surprise to everyone. It is not as high-scoring ground as Sharjah but batsmen can play through the line and hit on-the-up. The likes of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell among others would back themselves to clear the boundary at will here.
Team News RR: Rajasthan are missing the services of star all-rounder Ben Stokes but that hasn’t stopped them from winning two out of two. Their most expensive Indian bowler, Jaydev Unadkat, has once again failed to impress anyone and he might be replaced by young seamer Kartik Tyagi.
Team News KKR: Kolkata are one of the teams blessed to have all their options available and are spoilt for choices. Sunil Narine has failed at the top of the innings so we might see some change there but it not so much in the squad.

RR vs KKR Dream11 Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips
Jos Buttler: The English wicket-keeper missed the first match for Royals and failed in his first match against KXIP when he chipped a half-hearted flick straight to short mid-wicket. But that doesn’t change the fact that Buttler is one of the most dangerous white-ball players going around. Expect him to go big in this RR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction match.
Batting: 1390 Runs
Strike Rate: 150
Andre Russell: The big West Indian has only batted once so far and we still haven’t seen him clearing the boundary and we expect that to change in this match. Russell was incredible last season and the same is expected from him this time around. KKR must give Russell more time to bat because he is a gamechanger if there ever was one!
Steve Smith: The finicky Australian may not have the power game but he is pure class and finds gaps at will and has two fifties in two matches to show for that. He is consistent and backs his abilities, which makes him a safe bet to have as your vice-captain.
Strike Rate: 130
Dinesh Karthik: The captain of KKR batted at No. 3 in the first game and No. 4 in the second, failing to impress on both occasions. It seems he is putting too much pressure on himself and that is coming in the way of his natural game. Karthik must take a deep breath and remember the things that helped him become captain of such big franchise. He will be eager to go against Royals.
Batting: 3684 Runs
Strike Rate: 129
Sanju Samson: This man can do no wrong. Innings of 72 and 85 show the kind of form he is in especially with his strike-rate being over 200 in both those innings. He has hit 16 Sixes so far and has been brutal against both spinners and fast bowlers. He is an X-Factor that you just can’t afford to ignore. Yes, you must be thinking that law of averages will catch up with him but what if it doesn’t? Can you afford to take that risk!?
Strike Rate: 133
Nitish Rana: He is one of the most underrated hitters going around and that will work for you if you go with him. He showed his hitting prowess with a 13-ball 26 in KKR’s win over SRH and that would have given him a lot of confidence.
Batting: 1135 Runs
Strike Rate: 135
RR vs KKR Dream11 Today Match Prediction Most Affordable Players
Rahul Tewatia (Credits 8.5): We told you to pick him even before his heroics against KXIP in the last game. The leg-spinning all-rounder looks motivated in this tournament and can be lethal with both bowl and bat. He can make a telling difference in this RR vs KKR Today Match Prediction.
Shivam Mavi (Credits 8): After a brilliant first match (4-1-32-2) it was surprising to see him getting only two overs to bowl against SRH. Kolkata may give him the new ball once again and he can be threatening with the new rock.
