Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Highlights today – 54th Match (N), Indian Premier League 2020 from Dubai International Cricket Stadium Sunday, 11-01-2020.
Steven Smith won the toss and KKR will bat first.
Rajasthan Royals team: RV Uthappa, BA Stokes, SV Samson†, SPD Smith*, JC Buttler, R Parag, R Tewatia, JC Archer, S Gopal, Kartik Tyagi, VR Aaron.
Kolkata Knight Riders team: Shubman Gill, N Rana, RA Tripathi, KD Karthik†, EJG Morgan*, AD Russell, SP Narine, PJ Cummins, KL Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, CV Varun.
The scenario right now is that one, and only one, of these sides, can finish with 14 points. Both have an ordinary NRR so whoever wins wants to do so by a big margin. The best-case scenario for the winner of this match is to hope KXIP lose, which seems to be happening, and that SRH loses on Tuesday. If one of those teams wins, the winner of this match wants to win big tonight, and also the match between DC and RCB to be one-sided.
Dew is the big reason for that decision. Also, the RR team has been doing well chasing. Same XI for them. Eoin Morgan would have chased himself. “Not a night for holding back”. Andre Russell is back. One other change: Rinku Singh misses out, Shivam Mavi comes in. Still waiting to find who out of the other three overseas players sits out for Russell.
