Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2021

Kolkata and Rajasthan are in dire need of a win. KKR have lost the plot after starting the season with a win.

The top-order batsmen have been their biggest problem as the team has failed to get a good start. While Rajasthan is finding it difficult to cope with the injuries. They are without key players such as Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes. Rajasthan Royals were completely outplayed by RCB in the last match. 

It is crucial for both teams to start winning to get their campaign back on track.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Wankhede is a batting paradise. However, there is expected to be some help for bowlers with the new ball. It is important to take wickets with the new ball to restrict the opposition. 

Ideally, batting second is the automatic choice for the captain winning the toss. The average first innings score at the venue is 180 in the 8 matches so far. In the 8 matches of IPL 2021, the team batting second has won 5 times.

KKR vs RR Dream 11 Fantasy Team Prediction

KKR vs RR Dream 11 Fantasy Team Prediction

J Butler, S Samson, D Miller, N Rana, R Tripathi, R Parag, A Russell, C Morris, P Cummins, M Rahman, C Sakariya
Wicketkeeper – J Butler, S Samson
Batsman – D Miller, N Rana, R Tripathi, R Parag
All Rounders – A Russell, C Morris
Bowlers – P Cummins, M Rahman, C Sakariya
Best Captain Pick - S Samson
Best Vice-Captain Pick – A Russell

 

With both the teams looking for a turnaround, we expect a close contest. The pitch as Wankhade has been great for batsmen so we are sure to get a high-scoring match at the venue once again.  Both the captains are likely to prefer batting second in the match.
