Who will have the last laugh in Mumbai- KKR vs RR Match Preview

In this article ,we will preview the match 18 between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight riders. After losing three of their four matches, Rajasthan Royals and skipper were struggling to find the right combination in the playing XI and also the unavailability of star overseas players badly affected the Team which in turn results  at the bottom of the points table. Nothing seems to be working for them. Captain Sanju Samson might replace Manan Vohra with Yashasvi Jaiswal to get over their opening combination and good powerplay score . Entire batting unit completely depends on Sanju samson and Butler though they score 178 against RCB , RCB chased the score easily . 

On the other hand, the KKR  team looks more balanced. However, the previous match against CSK  will show confidence for their batsmans especially Russel  and DK found some good touch with their bat. Taking a lesson from the last match, they will try to be economical with their pacers this time. Most probably, KKR will have  with the same team they played in the last match.

Head to Head:

Played: 23 | Rajasthan Royals: 10 | Kolkata Knight Riders: 12 | No Result: 1

Players to Watch out:

Jos Butler , once again I will make him the player to watch because the entire team score depends on him. In the previous match against RCB , he was trapped by the bowlers .Surely, he will bounce back and score in this kind of pitch.

Nithish Rana, will be the go to batsman for this Team , once again a top order batsman will be the key player in these kind  tracks in Mumbai.

Expected PlayingXI changes:

 From KKR, there will not be any change since they had a close game in their previous encounter, they will surely try to improve their bowling attack against RR.

From RR, we may expect  unadkat in place of Shreyas gopal but the middle order batsmans of KKR might struggle with spinners ,so there may be a chance to replace  only manan vohra in the top order with young Jaiswal .

Surely  , it will be a 200 score for both teams, we will be going to witness the thrilling chase in this match and mostly KKR will have the last laugh . I will give my winning percentage as 60 for KKR and 40 for RR.
