Match Preview

Both KKR and RR have won their previous encounters, and both would like to carry the momentum forward when they face each other at Dubai international stadium on Wednesday. KKR were quick to rectify the mistakes made in the earlier games and their star players rose to the occasion. Shubham Gill anchored the innings with his flawless 70 runs off 62 deliveries. A complete performance by KKR gave them their first points in this IPL.

RR's performance was unprecedented. A record run chase in the IPL history and gaining the second spot on the table is surely a dream start for RR. Rahul Tewatia turned hero within a matter of 5 balls when he sent all those 5 into the stands after 20 balls nightmare to help RR win the game against KXIP It will be interesting to see how these two high on confidence teams fare against each other in the 12th match of IPL-2020.

Teams Preview

Rajasthan Royals

RR pulled out an unprecedented batting performance against KXIP. The batting will be remembered for a long time, all thanks to the belligerence of Sanju Samson and Rahul Tewatia. They created history when they chased 224 runs with 3 more balls to spare. RR are probably enjoying their dream run this year, everything turning right for them. Their batting is on another level. Sanju Samson leading with his back to back performances. He scored a fine 85 runs off 42 deliveries including 7 towering sixes. Steven Smith is enjoying the batting as well. His 50 runs with a strike rate of 185.19 were crucial in the run chase. Buttler, back into the side, got out early in the innings.

Rahul Tewatia, who was sent in to play a cameo, turned the game single-handedly. He looked rusty against the spinners but made up with 5 sixes in an over. He scored his first half-century in IPL. His 53 (31 balls) included no fours but 7 sixes.
Bowlers were hammered with each one of them going over 10 runs an over. Jofra Archer was wicketless in his 4 overs and conceded 46 runs. Tom Curran was average, got a wicket but leaked 44 runs in his quota. Shreyas Gopal and Unadkat couldn't do much with their bowling.

RR's bowling and Robin Uthappa's role in the team are the two points which they need to look after. Sanju Samson is the leading scorer for RR, scored a total of 159 runs in two matches whereas Steven Smith has scored 119 runs in his 2 matches making him the second-highest scorer for RR.

Key players: Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, and Jofra Archer.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR picked a good team when they faced SRH and will stick to the team against RR as well. A handsome win for KKR on the back of an all-round performance gives them sheer confidence. KKR chased 142 against SRH with 2 overs to spare and 7 wickets in hand. Shubhman Gill unleashed his capability with a match-winning knock of 70 runs. Eoin Morgan justified his presence with a marvelous 42 runs off 29 balls including 3 boundaries and 2 sixes. A perfect finisher that KKR was missing for long. Nitish Rana accelerated the innings with his quick 26 runs.

Patt Cummins held the Test-match line and length and gave nothing easy in his 4 overs and also picked an early wicket. Varun Chakravarty was phenomenal with his spin, he showed others how to bowl economically. He scalped one wicket in his 4 overs. Nagarkoti and Mavi both bowled were economical. Russell didn't get a chance to bat but took one wicket in his 2 overs.

Dinesh Karthik did well as a captain but needs to find his form as soon as possible. He got out for a golden duck. Shubhman Gill scored the highest 70(62) and Russell was the pick of the bowlers with one wicket for 16 runs in 2 overs.

Key players: Shubhman Gill, Patt Cummins, and Varun Chakravarty

Venue Details

The venue for this match, the Dubai International Stadium, has slightly bigger boundaries as compared to Sharjah where RR won their first two matches. KKR will be playing for the first time at this venue as well.

Toss Prediction

The pitch offers evenly for the bowlers and the batsmen. The team batting first has won all the matches played at the ground. Scoring more than 165 will be enough to play with for a win. Spinners can utilize the pitch with their lengths.

The team winning the toss should look to bat first here.

Winning Prediction

Both KKR and RR are riding high on confidence with their previous performances. KKR displayed mature bowling and batting whereas RR were flamboyant throughout. The only point where RR lag are their bowling. They have been butchered in both their matches. KKR may find it easy to score against RR. Thus, RR may taste their first loss in this IPL.

We predict that KKR will come victorious against RR.
