Preview for RR vs KKR GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
In the 18th match of IPL 2021, Rajasthan Royals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders.
Both Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders have struggled in games this season and as a result, have just a single win to their name in four matches. Rajasthan Royals won their second match of the campaign against Delhi Capitals.
In their most recent game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, RR were thumped by 10 wickets, thanks to spectacular knocks from Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli. Padikkal scored a century in that game after the RR top order failed once again. It was thanks to Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag, and Rahul Tewatia that they were able to post a respectable total.
Kolkata Knight Riders’ woes continue. Their top order failed once again while chasing a mammoth score against CSK after some horrific bowling. However, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik and especially, Pat Cummins played some outstanding knocks to take KKR close to the target, but in the end, it proved to be too little, too late.
Injuries and unavailability:
According to reports, Rajasthan Royals have signed Rassie van der Dussen as the replacement for the injured Ben Stokes.
Probable Playing XIs:
Rajasthan Royals: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (C & WK), Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman
Kolkata Knight Riders: Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy, Kamlesh Nagarkoti
Top Captaincy Picks for RR vs KKR GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
Sanju Samson: Captaining in his very first IPL match, Sanju scored a breath-taking 119 from just 63 deliveries and almost took his team past the finishing line single-handedly. He has struggled to find his footing since and would want to give a good account of himself in the next match.
Jos Buttler: Jos Buttler failed to make much of an impression in the opening fixture. He got off to a good start, scoring 25 runs in 13 balls but was unable to capitalise on it. However, in the match against RCB, Buttler finished on 49 runs and was the highest scorer for his side in that game.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Andre Russell: KKR might have lost the match against CSK, but their star all-rounder Andre Russell getting back to form with the bat will be a massive boost for the side. Russell managed to middle the ball with his bat and smashed boundaries for fun. He also got dismissed because of a silly judgement, something he’d avoid going forward. Russell scored 54 runs at a strike rate of above 245 in the last match.
Nitish Rana: Nitish Rana has been the highest scorer for KKR this season. He did have a flop show against CSK and RCB, but he scored back-to-back match winning half-centuries in the opening two fixtures. Rana looks to be in good touch and will be aiming for a bigger innings in the next game.
