RR vs KKR Prediction & Bettting Tips, IPL 2020

The tournament started with speculations of CSK, RCB, MI and KKR as the favourites to win the tournament but the way Rajasthan Royals have started their tournament, you’ll have to get them in contention as soon as possible. They’ve been outstanding in the two games they’ve played and at times have looked unbeatable. They started their tournament with a scintillating victory over Chennai Super Kings and backed it up with the record chase of 224 in their last game against Punjab. Two games, two 200 plus scores, Rajasthan Royals batting is making a statement early in the tournament. Both, Steven Smith and Sanju Samson have been terrific at the top while players Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer too have been outstanding with the bat. However, they’ll need their bowling to come good against KKR as you can’t expect your batsmen to put up 200 on the scoreboard in every match.

For KKR, they’re coming back from an impressive victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad. In Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine and Shivam Mavi, they’ve a venomous bowling attack that can demolish any batting line up. Varun Chakravarthy and Kamlesh Nagarkoti too have done well in the opportunity they got in the last match. As for their batting, KKR will be relieved to see Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana and Eoin Morgan back among the runs in the previous game. However, they’ll want Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell to hit the form as quickly as possible All in all, it’s all set up for an enthralling encounter in Dubai. However, RR looks a real force in this tournament and getting past them won’t be a cake walk for the Knight Riders.

Toss Prediction

Toss will be crucial for the teams as the pitch in Dubai is a bat first wicket. Teams chasing have lost all the four matches they’ve been played this IPL on this ground.

Weather Report

The weather in Dubai is expected to be warm with temperature going as high as 39 degrees.

Pitch Condition

The match will be played on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. The pitch in Dubai is a bat first wicket with it getting slower in the second innings. The stats prove the same as all the four matches played on this ground in IPL 2020 has been won by the team batting first. If the team batting first can get past 180, it would be very hard for the opposition to chase.

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Rajasthan Royals pulled off a record chase against Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2020, making a strong statement that can win from any given situation. They have a pretty solid top order with Smith, Samson in full flow. Rahul Tewatiya too played a miraculous knock in the last game. However, Rajasthan would be vary of the fact that their middle and lower-middle order hasn’t been tested as of yet. Robin Uthappa hasn’t scored many, so as Riyan Parag.

They’ll hope that these batsmen can also get some runs under their belt to feel more confident as the tournament progress. Another worry for Rajasthan will be their bowling. Apart from Jofra Archer, none has looked threatening by any means. They’ll need their bowlers to step up in the coming games as their batsmen won’t get 200 plus in every match. As of now, the only change we can expect of Rajasthan is them replacing Ankit Rajpoot with either Varun Aaron or Mayank Markande.

RR Key Players 

  • Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson, in the two matches he’s played has looked a man that means business. With scores of 74 and 85, he’s missed out on a century twice. He’ll be hoping that he gets third time lucky.
  • Steven Smith: Like Samson, Smith too has done bulk of the scoring for Rajasthan. He’s another batsman you can expect to score runs consistently.
  • Jofra Archer:  He hits sixes when he bats, takes wickets when he bows, it seems like Jofra Archer can’t do anything wrong in this IPL. Rajasthan banks upon Archer to come good and he obliges almost every time. 

RR Team Form

Rajasthan have won both their matches of the tournament.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler (wk), Steven Smith (C), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatiya, Shreyas Gopal, Riyan Parag, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Mayank Markande, Jayadev Unadkat.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

Kolkata Knight Riders went in with 7 genuine bowling options against SRH but might need extra batsmen in their XI considering that players like Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell hasn’t hit their strides yet. Rahul Tripathi can be good option. Apart from him any change in the playing XI looks highly unlikely. 

KKR Key Players

  • Eoin Morgan: Eoin Morgan looked good with a breezy 42 in the previous game and gave glimpses of a man returning to form. Once set, he can dominate any bowling attack in the world.
  • Dinesh Karthik: Dinesh Karthik hasn’t been at his best in the previous two matches but is an integral part of the KKR batting up. He is one batsman that plays according to the situation of the game. With players like Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell in the team, Karthik can get himself in and play a sheet anchor role to hold the innings together.
  • Andre Russell:Another man who hasn’t hit his strides yet but we all know what he can do on his day. Ande Russell will be crucial for KKR  if they’re chasing a big score.

KKR Team Form

After losing the first game, KKR bounced back strongly to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous game.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Shubhman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik (C/wk), Rahul Tripathi, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav/Varun Chakravarthy

RR vs KKR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper:

    In Jos Buttler at 10.5, Sanju Samson at 9.5, and Dinesh Karthik at 9.0, you have three terrific options to choose your wicketkeeper. All can also be selected as pure batsmen.
  • Batsmen:

    In the batting department, Steven Smith and Eoin Moragn at 10.0 and 9.0 credits respectively will make a cut into most teams. Other options that you can go for are Shubman Gill at 8.5, and Nitish Rana 9.0.
  • All-rounders:

    You’ve plenty to choose from in the all rounder’s section with players like Andre Russell (10.5 credits), Sunil Narine at (10) and Rahul Tewatiya at (8.5)
  • Bowlers:

    Pat Cummins at 9.0 and Jofra Archer at 9.0 are the top picks for bowlers. Shivam Mavi and Shreyas Gopal can also prove to be fruitful for your team.
  • Captain/Vice-captain:

    One of Sanju Samson and Steven Smith can be an ideal choice for the skipper. You can also select Eoin Morgan or Jos Buttler as your skipper but they’re not in the best of knick so the decision can also backfire. Andre Russel and Nitish Rana can be ideal picks for Vice-Captain.

RR vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Steven Smith, Sanju Samson(C), Eoin Morgan, Nitish Rana

  • All Rounder:Andre Russell (VC), Sunil Narine

  • Wicket Keeper:Jos Buttler, Dinesh Karthik

    I think today RR will win because RR has most balanced side with lights of Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler. Their bowling is little bit weak but I think they would manage it. But Dream11 IPL 2020 is going unpredictable so far.
