RR vs KOL Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today IPL Match 30 September

RR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: Rajasthan Royals have turned out to be a real surprise this year at least in the opening week. No one expected them to win both of their matches in the first week and one of them was from a precarious situation. But real test starts now for Rajasthan Royals as they will look to consolidate on their position. They will take on Kolkata Knight Riders today at Dubai. We will preview RR vs KOL Dream11 contest.

Fans will do well to still believe the last win from Rajasthan Royals. After a forgettable outing for almost all the bowlers, RR conceded 223 runs to Kings XI Punjab. Despite the fact that it was a flat pitch and small boundaries, the target looked like a mountain where you always fall short. Even so when they lost Jos Buttler very early in the chase. After that, Steve Smith and Sanju Samson combined again for a memorable partnership. Steve Smith was dismissed for 50 but Sanju Samson put on a clinic from the other end. They promoted Rahul Tewatia at no 4 position but he failed to score consistently as dot balls kept on mounting. At one point of time, Sanju Samson denied a single to Rahul Tewatia but things were about to change very soon for him. Rahul Tewatia slammed 30 runs from the 18th over of Sheldon Cottrell. And from nowhere Rajasthan Royals came storming back into the match and eventually winning it by 3 balls to spare.

Kolkata Knight Riders are also coming off from a win in their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They went in with a completely different strategy last time by giving themselves as many as 7 bowling options in the playing XI. Mainly due to their strength in this department, they restricted SRH to just 142 runs bowling first. All the bowlers bowled economically but Pat Cummins and Varun Chakravarthy were particularly impressive. In reply, young Shubman Gill guided the chase in a very composed manner with his unbeaten 70 and jolted a crucial partnership with Eoin Morgan after 3 early wickets in the powerplay. Kolkata Knight Riders won the match by 7 wickets and with 2 overs remaining.

In head-to-head comparisons, there is nothing to choose between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. Both won 10 matches each from a total of 20 matches played between them. Kolkata Knight Riders have dominated the proceedings in last 5 matches however by winning 4 games. When the last time they met in UAE, the match ended in a tie before Rajasthan Royals won the super over.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather in Dubai will remain clear but humidity will be on the higher side as usual. In terms of playing conditions, the same pitch will in use which was used during the match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier. One side of boundary will be considerably shorter than the other side and teams need to play it smart to have the maximum advantage of the boundary sizes.

Let’s take a look at the squad news and RR Vs KOL Dream11 predictions for today’s encounter.

Rajasthan Royals Team News

  • Rajasthan Royals are likely to go in with the same playing XI from the match against Kings XI Punjab.
  • Jos Buttler and Steve Smith will open the innings with Sanju Samson backing up at number 3 position. These top 3 will have to maintain their consistency all throughout the competition if RR are to produce something special this year.
  • Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia will form the middle order for RR but they may still one specialist batsman short there.
  • Jofra Archer is the leader of their packs in bowling department while Tom Curran, Ankit Rajpoot and Jaydev Unadkat will complement him in the fast-bowling options. Shreyas Gopal will remain their specialist spinner in RR vs KOL Dream11 predictions.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News

  • Kolkata Knight Riders also fielded bowling heavy playing XI in the last match and they should make some changes to strengthen the batting order.
  • Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine will open but if Sunil Narine fails to improve his game against short-pitch bowling, this experiment will soon come to an end.
  • Nitish Rana followed by three international superstars in Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell will constitute a formidable middle-order.
  • Pat Cummins at no 7 might be a position higher for him but that would give them more than enough bowling options. Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti will be given more opportunities while Kuldeep Yadav needs to find his mojo back as soon as possible for the good of KKR.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Sanju Samson is a straight forward choice for the captaincy position looking at the form he is in. He scored 74 against CSK in the first match and backed it up brilliantly with another 85 in the chase against KXIP. He is hitting the ball nicely but consistency will be a key for him going ahead.
  • Another promising Indian batsman on show today is Shubman Gill. After a failure in the first match, he played a very good hand of 70* in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He always plays some shots worth remembering. He will be a handy option for the small leagues as well.
  • Andre Russell shouldn’t be left out only because of his points scoring potential. Yes, his game time has remained limited in the first couple of matches but he can still make an impact better than the others. Only based on his skills and ability, Andre Russell can’t be counted out today.

For Grand Leagues

  • Jos Buttler will be a very good option in the grand leagues. He was dismissed cheaply in the last match but has been in terrific form in T20 cricket before the IPL. He was instrumental in England’s T20 series win against Australia earlier in the English summer.
  • Steve Smith has started this IPL brilliantly with impressive half-centuries in first couple of innings. He seemed to have turned his T20 batting upside down now. He is hitting the ball in unusual areas and if consistency is anything to go by, Steve Smith is your man today.
  • You can still bet upon Sunil Narine in the grand leagues. Yes, his batting stocks have fallen against quality fast-bowling recently but he is a banker in the bowling department. You can have him as a proper bowler in your team and any points with the bat will be a bonus for you.

Who will win RR vs KOL Today Match Prediction?

As per our Today Match Prediction, Kolkata Knight Riders are looking stronger of the two sides. The main strength of KKR will be their all-round options as most of their players are two-dimensional cricketers. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals will depend heavily on their top 3. But if they fail, RR will find it very difficult to make a contest out of this.
