IPL2020: KKR vs RR- Match Preview, Probable 11, Fantasy Tips. Dream 11 IPL 2020: Match no 54, KKR vs RR – Match Preview, Probable 11, Fantasy Tips, Who will win?
Dream11 IPL2020: Match no 54 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) and Rajasthan Royals(RR) at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. The match will start as usual evening time 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT), 18:00 LOCAL on Sunday, 1st November. This will be the last match for both the teams.
As the tournament is progressing towards the business end, the race to Playoffs is getting complicated for the franchises but Interesting and thrilling for the fans at the same time. Both Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) and Rajasthan Royals(RR) have played 13 games each and just one game is left for them in the league stage. Kolkata is at number 6 in the points table while Rajasthan is sitting right above Kolkata in number 5.
The match on Sunday will be a do-or-die encounter for both sides. Even winning a game will not confirm their place in Playoffs. As said earlier the race has become complicated for Franchises, they will have to look up to other teams stats too in order to qualify.
KKR has struggled a lot this season in finding a right playing 11 for the team. The season was not fruitful this time. From changing their skippers in the middle of the season to dropping their most valuable player of last season of IPL from playing 11. Also, the batting for KKR has not been consistent throughout, none of the players have played consistent cricket for them. They have a lot of firepower in the squad but they are not at their right pace in this IPL. Even the costliest player (Pat Cummins) of IPL 2020 is conceding runs. This seems to be worrying for KKR. The addition of Lokie Ferguson to the playing 11 has strengthened their bowling unit along with pacer Pat Cummins and Spinner Varun Chakravarthy.
While Rajasthan Royals will be pretty confident in the match, having won the last two games comfortably. They defeated, defending champions Mumbai Indians with 8 wickets and then defeating dangerous-looking KXIP by 7 wickets and snatching their winning streak.
The good sign for the Royals is that their top order is performing consistently in the last few games. The addition of Ben Stokes to the squad has provided quality in the lineup. Ben Stokes, Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler and Steve Smith looked in good touch in the last game against KXIP.
Also, their bowling unit looks like a one-man army. None other than Jofra Archer has performed to a good extent. They have been conceding runs a lot. Only Jofra Archer cannot do the job done for a team. This loophole is a big issue for Rajasthan Royals in Sunday’s encounter against KKR.
Earlier, when both the teams met in 2020, Kolkata Knight Riders outplayed Royals in all departments, and won the match by 37 runs and earned 2 crucial points.
