KKR Vs RR Preview
Kolkata has had a horror run lately and if there ever was a team that needs better team management it has to be Kolkata. Wherever they are right now is entire because of what miracles Russell was able to perform earlier in the tournament. Dinesh Karthik as a captain would be really under the scanner after the blunders he’s shown this season. Be it sending Shubhman Gill to bat at No.7 or be it leaving Russell in the dugout for just too long, these mistakes have caught up with KKR and are starting to hurt them now.
Rajasthan, on the other hand, ran into a Rishabh Pant special in the last game that was entirely overshadowed by Ajinkya Rahane class innings. The team doesn’t have that much of a chance of reaching the qualifiers now, but for sure it has started playing more and more like a team it was supposed to.
Kolkata needs to win this one badly while Rajasthan would just be looking to make the most of what has been a disappointing season. With such varied stakes on the line, it would be interesting how both teams go about things.

Form Guide (LLLLL)
For KKR the game plan needs to be simple. Russell need to bat at no lower a position than No. 5, and if they want to play Shubman Gill, he should be performed at No.3. The rest of the lineup is pretty flexible, and that’s how it should be ideally. Although ideally Kuldeep should be rested for now but it does seem that the team needs him badly to perform so he might make a return.
The player under the spotlight
This edition of IPL has seen a new Chris Lynn. Someone who’s not the most swashbuckling batsman but someone who digs deep and anchors the innings. It does seem that Lynn has gone on this path and sacrificed some of his impetuosity to provide stability to the batting order. The runs scored in the process would give Lynn some confidence for the future and should help him to accelerate better in the coming games.
Form Guide (LWLWL)
Rajasthan did most of the things right in their last match except finishing on a high while batting and running into a rampant Rishabh Pant. Ajinkya Rahane is back in form now and Sanju Samson also looks in decent touch. Smith is also gaining in confidence while Stuart Binny has been able to contribute ably since getting included in the team. Rajasthan might prioritize stability over further experimentation for this one.
The player under the spotlight
Steve Smith becoming the captain has certainly lit a fire under him. He’s made decent contributions, but it won’t be a far-fetched thing to say that he’s still not at his all-time best. We’re yet to see Smith in full flow, and whenever that happens, it’s going to be pretty amazing.
Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahana, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni
It’s a flat track at Kolkata, and it yielded more than 400 runs in the previous game. The surface usually offers some assistance to the bowlers but looking at the track record, a score of 180 could be par for this surface.
KKR Vs RR Betting Tips
Kolkata is a shattered bunch right now, so KKR management has been given off to the team to regroup ahead of the next game. Rajasthan are playing with a rejuvenated side and are the favorites for this one.
