Rajasthan Royals team analysis
Butler and Smith will open the innings for Rajasthan, Smith looked in good touch with his fifty and Butler is coming after a successful outing against Australia
Samson has scored two fifties in two matches scoring 159 in two innings, he will be key to middle order as there is not much batting left behind him.
Tewatia took lime light in the previous game for his breath taking innings of 50 in 31 balls, he is expected to play a similar kind of innings against Kolkata. Tewatia can bowl too he has 3 wickets this season so far at an economy rate of pinch over 6.
Lower order is bit of concern for team especially it is not a suitable place for Uthappa to bat on, Riyan Parag has to find his groove.
Archer and Curran will be all rounders for the team, who shined with both bat and ball in both the innings, they had 3 wickets between them and scored 60 runs combined at a very quick pace.
Shreyas Gopal is yet to fire in the tournament with only a wicket, he might come in handy with longer boundaries in Dubai.
Unadkat and Ankit Rajpoot will be other pace options for the team, they went for runs in the last game, Rajasthan will be hoping to get a wickets from them.
Players to look out: Samson, Gopal, Archer and Butler
Kolkata Knight Riders Team Analysis:
Sunil Narine and Shubman Gill will open the batting where Narine has failed miserably in two innings where he got only 9 runs, while Gill played sensibly and took his team over the line, Kolkata might bring a change in batting order.
Nitish Rana and Eoin Morgan should cover middle order for the team, they scored quickly and sensibly, they has 108 runs combined in two matches combined. Dinesh Karthik should play a finisher role which he suits at best.
Andre Russel will be tested against pace of Jofra Archer, given big boundaries his muscle power no less, and his bowling has found the groove he has 2 wickets against his name in this tournament so far.
Cummins and Mavi will be go to fast bowling options, Cummins failed in first match came back strongly in second match bowled economically and Mavi is pick of bowlers for his team has two wickets against his name.
Kuldeep and Varun will be spin options where Kuldeep is struggling to find his groove, while Varun has bowled economically in his first match and picked up a wicket, they will come in handy with long boundaries.
Players to look out: Gill, Morgan, Cummins and Kuldeep
RR vs KKR match Predictions:
Our take: Rajasthan will bat really good against a bowling loaded line up in new ground where boundaries are quite long, a lot will be dependent on their middle order. Kolkata seems to be all bases covered particularly in bowling. Kolkata can come out victorious in this fixture.
