KKR Vs RR – Desperation to succeed
The best match or a game is not between the top two teams on the charts, It is always between two teams who are at the bottom of the charts & that is because they have nothing to lose. If they win, it’s an added benefit for them but if they lose, they will still be at the bottom. In these kinds of situations you see the best of every player & witness the magic of the game. A similar kind of situation will be faced by Rajasthan Royals & Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday when they collide with each other.
While Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata is on a three-game losing streak, Rajasthan, captained by Sanju Samson, comes into the match on the back of two successive defeats. Both teams find themselves in the bottom half of the points table with just a solitary win in four games. The rise of Pat Cummins as a complete all-rounder will provide a big boost for KKR, whose middle-order has disappointed in all but one game. So, the trio of Morgan, and Andre Russell will be desperate to click as a unit.
Kolkata’s opponent Rajasthan has been inconsistent in both departments and is completely low on confidence following its 10-wicket loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore. Nothing went right against Bangalore on Thursday, so RR would have gone back to the drawing board to address its issues. The onus will once again be on Samson, Jos Buttler, Shivam Dube and David Miller to produce the goods with the bat.
Rahul Tewatia and Chris Morris have shown that they are capable of hitting big at the death. The bowling department had a bad day at the office against RCB and will look to bounce back quickly. Already a part of the chasing pack, both sides are expected to go all out for a win.
