Indian Premier League is underway today’s match will take place between RR v KKR at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium at 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT), 18:00 local time. Both Teams will played their 3rd match.
RR was on an absolute throw with the bat in IPL 2020 and remains the only team that has scored over 200 points twice in a row and emerged as the winner just as often. In their first game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), RR scored 216, beating CSK by 16 runs. In their second game, RR, which took 224 runs to win, they defeated Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) for the highest successful run chase in IPL history.
KKR, on the other hand, had mixed fortunes in the first two games of the season. While losing their opening game to Mumbai Indians (MI), the team led by Dinesh Karthik recovered in style, beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by seven goals to claim their first win in the 2020 IPL.
Head To Head Players
After winning 10 games against each other, nothing separates these two teams in terms of their head-to-head record. While KKR currently has a better record (4: 1) if you look at the last five games of these two teams, RR has the lead in the last meeting of these two teams. With both teams aiming to score, here are the players who could make a difference.
Two games, two more than fifty points, 159 runs with a hit rate of almost 215. Sanju Samson is currently creaming the cricket ball and scoring runs in the IPL 2020 for fun. He scored 74 and 85 runs in the first two games of RR The Right-Handed was crucial to RR’s success and remains a player to watch out for in his team’s third game of the season.
The promising young Indian batsman was a treat to see during his undefeated 62-ball-70-run tie against SRH. Shubman Gill hit 5 fours and 2 sixes to lead KKR to their first win. With KKR aiming for a second win, they want Gill to do well and continue his stroke form in the game against RR.
He didn’t have a good game when KKR opened its IPL 2020 campaign, but champion bowler Pat Cummins, who opened bowling in the second game against MI, set the tone for KKR’s approach. The Australian runabout returned at 1/19 as KKR secured its first win at IPL 2020.
Three wickets in his first game on RR returned when they beat CSK. After Rahul Tewatia was promoted from 224 to fourth in the big chase, he overcame the initial struggles to turn the match upside down by five sixes in one over, scoring 53 balls out of 31. RR will be more than happy to deliver again and play a role in the third win in a row in the IPL 2020.
Steve Smith, one of today’s best batsmen, has led from the front and scored fifty goals in his side’s victories against CSK and KXIP. He will be keen to continue his punch form while RR takes on a hat against KKR-trick of wins in the 2020 IPL and add two more points to their account.
