Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: IPL 2020 - Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders - Match 12
The 12th match of the Indian Premier League 2020 will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai in the UAE.
The Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad to just 142 in their last match. It was strange that Hyderabad were just four down and were still not able to get going.
It was credit to Pat Cummins and Varun Chakravarthy in particular to keep the opposition batsmen on a tight leash. Varun Chakravarthy coming into Kolkata's playing XI in place of Nikhil Naik was an inspired move from KKR.
Chakravarthy was hard to get away and conceded 25 runs from his four overs while picking up the prized scalp of opposition captain David Warner. Pat Cummins, after getting a tap in his first match, bowled like a top international pacer and gave away just 19 runs from his four overs while taking the wicket of Jonny Bairstow.
Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan then showed their class as the team chased down the target with two overs to spare.
Rajasthan Royals had almost lost their last match, chasing 224, before the team plundered 86 runs from their last 5 overs to turn the game on its head.
Steve Smith and Sanju Samson gave Rajasthan a brilliant start but Rahul Tewatia was the star for them, who showed his true colours after starting slowly.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Rajasthan Royals (RR) - Steven Smith(c), Jos Buttler(wk), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Ankit Rajpoot
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) - Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Kamlesh Nagarkoti
