Match: Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Match 12
Date: 30th September 2020, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
What To Expect:
The pitch at the Dubai has played better in recent games, with the previous game between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians seeing more than 400 runs scored. There is some help on offer for the bowlers and changes of pace have proved to be quite effective as the match progresses.
The spinners have also enjoyed some turn off the surface, and this should make for a good battle in the middle overs with the batsmen targeting the square boundaries. Dew is expected to play a part in the second innings, which should persuade both sides to chase upon winning the toss. The average first innings score at this venue is 180 in IPL 2020.
After a historic win against KXIP, RR wouldn’t want to fiddle with their winning combination and might play the same XI. The only one change they might consider is bringing the extra batsman, Miller and thus dropping Tom Curran.
Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing XI:
Jos Buttler (WK), Steve Smith (C), Sanju Samson, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Robin Uthappa, Tom Curran/David Miller, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Ankit Rajpoot
Kolkata Knight Riders
Sunil Narine’s form with both bat and ball is a cause for concern, KKR’s all-round effort in the previous game should hold them in good stead. Their bowling attack, led by Pat Cummins, looks solid despite lacking experience. Like Rajasthan Royals, they too wouldn’t want to change their winning combination.
Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:
Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (C&WK), Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Pat Cummins
