Match No. 12 of the Dream 11 IPL 2020 will be played between table Toppers Rajasthan Royals and an in form Kolkata Knight Riders. Rajasthan Royals will be coming into this match on the back of an incredible chase against Kings XI Punjab.
The Royals showed an almost perfect display of form in their first game against the Chennai Super Kings and followed it up by chasing the record highest score in thirteen years of the IPL courtesy of Rahul Tewatia. But not all is well with the RR bowling lineup conceding more than 200 runs twice in a row, Emphasis will be on senior players like Jaydev Unadkat and Jos Buttler to guide the bowling lineup.
One to watch out for
In a country of 1.3 Billion only a handfull few can claim to being the talk of the town for winning an IPL match on his own, Even fewer can claim to have hit an experienced International for five sixes in an over when the team needs it, Rahul Tewatia did both on a single night, Smashing Sheldon Cottrell for five sixes in an over thus turning the tide of the match and helping Rajasthan to the top of the table. It will be interesting to see whether Tewatia could follow this up with another few slogs or is he a one hit wonder.
Predicted Lineup – Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Rahul Tewatia, Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag, Jofra Archer, Tom Curran, Karthik Tyagi, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat.
Kolkata Knight Riders
If ever there was a complete performance, It was the one KKR put up against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Right from the off, Pat Cummins picking up a couple of wickets after a lungbusting spell upfront, Varun Chakravarthy finally came to the fore, weaving a web around the SRH batsman and Shubhman Gill continued on his merry way scoring another half Century.
One to Watch out for
Andre Russell has not featured heavily in the first two games for KKR, Is this a sign of things to come? Or is this just the calm before the storm , I do believe Andre Russell will make an impact on this match with the bat and the ball, Although his fitness might be a concern.
Predicted Lineups : Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana, Sunil Narine, Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, Kuldeep Yadav, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy,Andre Russell, Kamlesh Nagarkotti.
