IPL 2022: KKR vs RR Match Preview:

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have made a mess of their campaign in the ongoing IPL 2022. They started off pretty well with three wins in the first four matches and were reckoned as the team to beat in the tournament. However, their downfall began after Delhi Capitals hammered them in a high scoring contest and exposed their batting unit. 

KKR is on a five-match losing streak currently and would be hoping to bounce back with a win against Rajasthan Royals in its next assignment. 

The two-time champions have a couple of issues that should be repaired if they want to remain in the race. The opening combination hasn’t worked for them, the middle order hasn’t been consistent either. Moreover, bowling has disappointed them to a large extent. Barring Umesh Yadav, no other bowler has fetched good results for the team.

On the other side, Rajasthan Royals have suffered a defeat against Mumbai Indians (MI) in their last match. Mumbai brought up their first win of the season defeating Rajasthan by five wickets in the DY Patil Stadium. 

The only issue with RR is their awful luck during the flip of the coin. Skipper Sanju Samson has lost eight tosses in nine matches.

IPL 2022: KKR vs RR Pitch Report:

The pitch seems to be great for the batters. The ball comes onto the bat nicely and scoring has been fairly easy on this surface despite the pitch getting old. On this surface, Ruturaj Gaikwad scored a quickfire 99 against SRH’s deadly bowling unit, last night. Devon Conway dug 85 runs and CSK put up a total of 203 runs. Dew will be a major factor and will trouble the team bowling second.
