Kolkata Knight Riders hasn't get going in this year IPL failing to Play according to their potential.
Rajasthan Royals do have a long Batting Lineup but Inconsistency of Sanju Samson has been an issue for the Royals.
Form of Andre Russel in the previous game against Chennai Super Kings has been the silver lining for KKR and has given relief to the side.
Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Both Teams are desperate to get 2 crucial Points on the points table. Kolkata Knight Riders played impressive cricket in their previous encounter but were few runs short. Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill will open the batting of KKR. We might see Sunil Narine at the top of the order. Morgan needs to find his form back As he has to lead from front. Batting of Andre Russell must have given sigh of relief for the team in the previous Match. Inclusion of Sunil Narine will strengthen the bowling as also gives a spin partner for Varun chakravarthy. Pat Cummins has the capability to pick up wickets up front along with impressive prasidh Krishna. Kamlesh Nagarkoti has been given a chance in the previous game but failed to impress.
Rajasthan Royals are also lagging behind in the Points Table with only 2 points to their name and also are at the Bottom of the Table. Jos Butler has played some good knocks for the team but unable to take the team forward towards victory. Manan Vohra has also wasted starts and failed to make it count. The biggest Issue in the batting Department has been the Inconsistency of Sanju Samson as he is the Pillar of the side with Stokes missing. Rahul Tewatia and Parag batted well against Bangalore in the middle overs. Onus will be Chris Morris to provide the finishing touch for the team. In Bowling Department Chetan Sakariya has impressed everyone with his bowling. Mustafizur and Morris are the two overseas Pacers for the side. Shreyas Gopal has been given chance in the previous game against RCB. The team might back him as his records are good against KKR.
The pitch at the Wankhede has been a batting beauty. If the team gets off to a decent start and does not lose too many wickets upfront, it can really go hard through the entire inning and make the opposition pay. Batting First Score of excess of 180+ will be on cards.
Team Winning the Toss would likely to Field first at this Venue as Chasing has been preferred by teams due to Due as a Factor and Batting becomes easy in the Second half of the Innings with ball coming nicely on to the Bat.
