Rajasthan Royals land in Kolkata on the back of three consecutive, dominating and extremely impressive wins. Their run has meant they've surged to the fifth spot just behind Kolkata Knight Riders, their opponents on Tuesday (May 14), and look good for a late surge into the Top 4.
Both KKR and RR will walk into the contest with similar objectives. Cricket Betting Tips The luxury to drop points is now gone and a slip could well prove fatal at the stage this tournament is right now. Both teams, despite their resounding win in the previous encounter, have plenty of issues and are far from polished products heading into the business end of IPL 2018.
RR have done well to give the teams in the top half a major scare. While Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings have qualified for the playoffs, Ajinkya Rahane and his batch of 2018 have left KKR, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab sweating. But all three wins have come on the back of Jos Buttler. Cricket Tips The opener has bailed the team out and managed to push it over the line single-handedly with very little contributions from the other batsmen.
Misfiring Ben Stokes and the fact that Sanju Samson has lost a bit of form should worry the think-tank. The fact that Rahane too hasn't played an innings of substance in the last five games shows there's a major weakness - one that KKR will look to target. Jos Buttler threat looms large and the first thing KKR will aim to do is get rid of him. If they can't, the focus will shift to minimising the damage and squeezing other batsmen. Free Betting Tips KKR can take heart from Buttler's good run as well.
KKR have lacked the consistency but have done well to bounce back from desperate situations. After the thrashing by MI, they did well to cruise past KXIP in Indore. Cricket Betting Tips Free With a win behind them, it's crucial that they find a way to sustain the momentum. That, however, is easier said than done. RR, with the kind of form they are in, are more than capable of hurting KKR's bouncebackability.
Both teams held an optional practice session on the eve of the game but most from KKR's first XI turned up to show they mean business. KKR play their last game in Hyderabad against ominous looking SRH. Cricket Tips Free RR head back home to play against fearless RCB. Both teams are desperate to not leave it for too late. That being said, one team, will certainly leave Kolkata hurting a lot more.
When: Tuesday, May 15, 2018
Where: Eden Gardens, Kolkata
What to expect: There has been plenty of rain in the city leading up to the game but things remained clear on the eve of the clash. There's rain forecast on match day as well.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Shivam Mavi continues to struggle with the finger injury he picked up in the game against CSK. Though he bowled in the nets, Jacques Kallis, the coach, confirmed they are going to make a last minute call on his availability. Online Cricket Betting If he does get fit, KKR will have to deal with another headache given Prasidh Krishna's impressive performance with the ball in Indore where batsmen dominated the game. With pace and bounce in the pitch, KKR might just move away from their strategy of playing three spinners - meaning one of Kuldeep Yadav or Piyush Chawla might have to sit out
