Both the teams are in similar position on the points table, both of them have one win in four games where RR have failed to make the most of batting friendly pitch at the wankhede in the last two games they did use them to the most in the first two games where they almost had two wins in two games. But as for KKR they have failed to sustain the winning form after the win in the first game that was showcased in the last game but there were a few positives for KKR in the last game runs from the bats of Andre Russell and Pat Cummins. But as Pat Cummins said in one of the videos that one good over with the ball could have won the game. The change from Chepauk to Wankhede is also causing some troubles in the execution of the bowlers. But having played all the four games on one venue (that too Wankhede) RR have failed to make the use of the conditions well and certainly the losses in the form of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer are hurting them but they have to get over it and find a perfect balance in the team and start performing before it gets too late. Skipper Sanju Samson’s form has been the problem for them as he has got the starts but hasn’t gone on to score big after the century in the first game and that has been the story of Sanju Samson for the last 3-4 seasons. But it’s time to pit that right and start leading the team with example. And something similar has been going on with Nitish Rana in the last few seasons now and it’s the right time to sort it out as KKR need runs at the top and Shubman and Rana need to perform if they have to get any closer to the qualification.
KKR’s probable XI: Shubman Gill,Nitish Rana,Rahul Tripathi,Eoin Morgan,Sunil Narine,Dinesh Karthik,Andre Russell,Pat Cummins,Varun Chakravarthy,Kamlesh Nagarkotti,Prasidh Krishna
RR’s probable XI: Manan Vohra,Jos Buttler,Sanju Samson,David Miller,Shivam Dubey,Riyan Parag,Rahul Tewatia,Chris Morris,Shreyas Gopal,Andrew Tye,Chetan Sakaria
