RR vs. KKR Dream 11 Match Preview:
Indian premium league is going great under COVID restriction. The eighteenth match of Vivo IPL 2021 will be played between the mighty Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals. Both teams are equally good, and fans are waiting for a high-intensity match. Both teams have played four games, and they managed to win only one game. This match will be crucial for both KKR and RR to win and return to the winning track.
Rajasthan Royals have won only one game in this season of Vivo IPL 2021. They have played a total of 4 games and failed to win 3 games. Currently, they have to work hard on bowling as well as batting. In their last game, they totally surrender against RCB. I hope Rajasthan fully will come back stronger against Kolkata knight riders on Saturday night.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers and batters were also failing badly and performed badly in their last game, but the positive thing is Andre Russell and Pat Cummins back into action and gave a hint that they are in great form. In the last match against Chennai, Super Kings Russell scored 54 runs off just 22 deliveries, and Pat Cummins scored brilliant 66 runs off only 34 balls. But unfortunately, they failed to win that game.
This will be a crucial match for both teams. They will definitely fight hard to bag 2 points from this match and go ahead on the points table. If we see the head-to-head stats between RR and KKR then, they have played 23 matches, and Kolkata has won 12 matches; on the other hand, Rajasthan Royals managed to win in 10 games.
