RR vs KKR Match & Analysis

While we are still pretty early in the tournament and a lot of strange things can happen, a loss here could have a deflating impact whereas a win here could go a long way in reviving the winner's run in this tournament. Comparing the two sides on paper and on-performance, they look evenly matched. However, the fact that the Royals have played all their matches at this venue weighs in their favor. For that reason, placing money on a Royals' win should be the way to go here.

RR vs KKR Team Previews

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals started the tournament in a flamboyant fashion by almost chasing down a towering total against Kings XI Punjab. Their fans have since then are waiting to see Royals put up a solid batting performance. To add to their woes, Ben Stokes was pushed out of the side due to a hand injury, which pushed Jos Buttler to the top, but he hasn't really been able to weave his magic yet.

Before the last match, Rajasthan's problem was primarily with their batting. However, the Royal Challengers Bangalore highlighted how single-dimensional the Royals' bowling attack is. With the bat, the Royals have tons of firepower in the middle-order, but that is being utilized more to rebuild the innings than to launch a late assault. Manan Vohra's form has been disappointing and we expect the Royals to make a change at the top in the upcoming match.

The Royals woes at the top with the bat are illustrated with the fact that no team in IPL 2021 has lost more wickets than the Royals in the powerplay. Besides, they are the team with the least run-rate in the same period amongst all teams. Royals do have a lot of options available in the dug-out and a change is certainly coming in this upcoming match.

With the ball, the Royals have blown hot and cold to say the least. At times, they have appeared to be one of the most resilient teams with the ball and at other times, they have looked listless. Against Punjab and Bangalore, the bowlers were taken away for plenty and we expect some change in this department as well.

All in all, the Royals are struggling at the moment. While they do have truckloads of talent available in Buttler, Samson, Miller, Tewatia, Parag, and Sakaria, they have been found wanting in the execution department. If they can pull things together in the upcoming match, the fans will see a royal show.

Rajasthan Royals Playing 11

Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, R Tewatia, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman.


Kolkata Knight Riders

Similar to the Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders are struggling to say the least. Their batting seems to be too over-dependent on Andre Russell to provide impetus to their innings and that is something that the Royals will be looking to take an advantage of. As it stands, KKR are placed at the seventh spot on the ladder with just two points and will be desperately searching for a win.

The Knight Riders are struggling to gather the momentum at the top order with Shubham Gill unable to get off the blocks quickly. Nitish Rana had a delightful start to the competition, but his form has faded after a couple of good knocks. The major disappointment for the Knight Riders has been the lack of runs from the bat of Eoin Morgan, who can ruin any bowling attacks' plan on his day, but is still to find his midas touch.

The Knight Riders will take heart from how their lower-order did against Chennai Super Kings as they bounced back from a position of no hope and almost chased down a gigantic total. The presence of Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, and Dinesh Karthik add depth to their batting order.

With the ball, however, Kolkata Knight Riders have been far from impressive. They lack someone with good death bowling skills and that has hurt them in the last couple of matches. We expect them to take a step towards fixing this issue in the upcoming match.

All in all, the Knights Riders have a terrific team on paper that has struggled to execute their plans. Additionally, death bowling could be an issue for them at Mumbai, which doesn't really suit the kind of bowlers KKR have. If they can find a way to overcome that, they'll be in business.

    Chetan Sakariya - Total Wickets - Over 0.5

    1.91

    Visit

Even though Chetan Sakariya is still pretty young and inexperienced, he has done exceedingly well in the tournament so far. He bowls in the powerplay and at the death both, which allows him maximum chances to take wickets. Bet on Sakariya to pick at least on wicket in this match.

    Eoin Morgan - To score a fifty - Yes

    4.00

    Visit

Eoin Morgan's form has been a cause of concern for the KKR and it is high time for him to step up for his side. The factor that weights in his favor is that he has an impeccable record against the Royals, scoring at an average of over 81. We expect him to continue doing well against the Royals and a fifty for him is certainly on the cards.

  1. 1xBet

    1xBet

    Andre Russell - Total Runs - Under 27.5

    1.832

    Visit

Andre Russell looked in imperious touch in the last match and will be a key man for the Knight Riders. However, apart from the last match, his tournament form has been far from rest. Besides, he is known to struggle against Chris Morris and out-and-out pace. Also, he generally too low to get enough time to settle in. Considering those factors , we expect him to score a personal score of less than 27.5 runs in the match.
