How do the teams stack up?

Kolkata Knight Riders

This whole season KKR has shown team effort. They have tried to outperform their opponent in one or the other aspect of the game. Though the new captain was in limelight, KKR’s own Russell and Narine have again proved their worth with both, bat and ball. It has been a season with ups and downs but with only two games left, they would want to make the most of it and cement their position in Top 4. They might want to go with the same 3 spinners and exploit the most out of this ground. They might go with the same winning team.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals may have won their last three games but the question still remains! What happens when Butler has a bad day? The whole batting lineup looks dependent on Butler and Samson. Rahane, Short, Stokes have failed every chance they have been given. They need to take charge in these must win games now. Bowling department have been on the plus side. With addition of Archer and Ish Sodhi, the bowling looks really good. They might repeat history if they strengthen their batting lineup. They might want to bring Sodhi back for this match.
