IPL 2019 Match Preview M21 - RR VS KKR

IPL 2019 Match Report: M21 – RR VS KKR: Both teams are coming into this match at the back of wins against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Team news:

Rajasthan Royals: 

There is no solid reason as to why RR would want to change a winning combination. However, there is a strong case to slot Sanju Samson back into the playing eleven after he missed the last game due to an injury. One of Stuart Binny or Varun Aaron might have to make way for him.

Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane(c), Jos Buttler(w), Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith, Ben Stokes, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Varun Aaron/Stuart Binny

Kolkata Knight Riders: 

KKR’s pacers looked all at sea on a placid Chinnaswamy surface, but with a variety of bowling options to choose from, DK would be tempted to field the same eleven. With Rana chipping in and Russell in scintillating form, the selection headaches seems to be a non-existent factor for KKR.

Probable XI:Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna

What they said:

“We keep putting him in tough situations and he keeps lifting his game. He is just too good..” – Chris Lynn about Russell’s super-human abilities.

“We (wrist spinners) get to spin the ball both sides and that’s probably an advantage. It’s about bowling better areas and sticking to plans” – Shreyas Gopal after he won the MoM against RCB.

Head to Head in IPL

Overall: Matches – 18,Rajasthan Royals – 9, Kolkata Knight Riders – 9.
