KKR vs RR Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 54th game of the IPL 2020. The match will be played on the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.

We’re into the last phase of the IPL 2020 from now onwards, every match can be seen as a knock out game. Rajasthan Royals in the last two games have shown what they’re capable of. With two back to back wins they’ve kept their hopes alive in the tournament. However, they need to continue winning the matches as a loss will end their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs. In Ben Stokes they’ve got a match winner at the top. Sanju Samson too is back among the runs. With Buttler batting at 6, RR has enough depth in their batting. Their only concern will be a bleak bowling attack that is heavily dependent on Jofra Archer. They’ll need some of the other bowlers to put their hand up in this crunch game.

Kolkata on the other hand has completely lost the momentum in the last few games. They too face a must win situation to stay in contention for the play offs. Kolkata will majorly depend upon the trip of Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana and Eoin Morgan to the bulk of the scoring. Sunil Narine too on his day can get vital runs. KKR has a decent bowling attack in Lockie Ferguson, Pat Cummins and Sunil Narine. Overall, both teams have enough firepower in their kitty but RR has the momentum on their side which might just work in their favour.

KKR vs RR Toss Prediction

Toss is absolutely crucial here as teams batting second have a huge advantage due to dew.

Weather Report

The weather at Dubai will make it challenging for the players with temperature hovering in high thirties for most part of the day.

Pitch Condition

The match will be played on the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. During the first half of the tournament, batting first was the most feasible option but with dew around, teams chasing are having the best batting conditions in the last few games. It’s a tricky call for the captains. You need to put on additional 20 runs to cover up for the dew. 200 will be a good score here.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

Two back to back losses have got KKR's campaign into jeopardy. KKR have already tried out their bench strength and will most probably go in with the same playing XI. 

KKR Key Players

  • Nitish Rana - Nitish Rana wasn't at its best for most part of the tournament but it seems he's arrived just when it mattered the most. Rana has two 80+ scores post his promotion as an opener. He'll be absolutely crucial for KKR in setting the tone for the KKR's response with the bat.
  • Eoin Morgan - Eoin Morgan has been one of the most consistent batsmen of KKR in the second half of the IPL 2020. With Dinesh Karthik demoted down as a finisher, Morgan might come up the order to take charge of KKR's batting. 
  • Sunil Narine - Sunil Narine is KKR'S most valuable player. He might be not that consistent with the bat but as a bowler he's the best of all. He'll be hoping to make RR batsmen dance to his tunes. 

KKR Team Form

KKR'S campaign got off to a flying start but has completed lost momentum in the second half of the IPL. They now face a must win situation against Rajasthan Royals
