Steve Smith’s Rajasthan Royals will be full of confidence going into the clash against the Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders. Watch RR vs KKR live.
The in-form Rajasthan Royals will be on the lookout for a third-consecutive win in IPL 2020 when they face off against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.
Rajasthan Royals, led by Australian Steve Smith, have been on a roll, beating Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab in their first two games in the Indian Premier League.
Leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia played the innings of a lifetime against KXIP, smashing five sixes of a Sheldon Cottrell over to snatch victory for the Royals.
RR’s batsmen, especially Sanju Samson have been on fire, scoring 200-plus in both games, and with Jos Buttler back in the starting XI, one can expect that trend to continue.
However, the match against KKR will be RR’s first outside Sharjah and the slow nature and big ground at Dubai could pose a different challenge. Watch RR vs KKR on live streaming.
Meanwhile, the Shah Rukh Khan-owned Kolkata Knight Riders come into the clash with a comfortable victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous game.
Young batsman Shubman Gill anchored the chase well along with the experienced Eoin Morgan and their form bodes well for KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik.
The explosive Andre Russell is yet to come good for KKR this season and RR’s slightly jaded bowling attack could provide the perfect platform for the Jamaican power-hitter to launch his attack.
