Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL Match Prediction

he tournament started with speculations of CSK, RCB, MI and KKR as the favourites to win the tournament but the way Rajasthan Royals have started their tournament, you’ll have to get them in contention as soon as possible. They’ve been outstanding in the two games they’ve played and at times have looked unbeatable. They started their tournament with a scintillating victory over Chennai Super Kings and backed it up with the record chase of 224 in their last game against Punjab. Two games, two 200 plus scores, Rajasthan Royals batting is making a statement early in the tournament. Both, Steven Smith and Sanju Samson have been terrific at the top while players Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer too have been outstanding with the bat. However, they’ll need their bowling to come good against KKR as you can’t expect your batsmen to put up 200 on the scoreboard in every match.

For KKR, they’re coming back from an impressive victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad. In Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine and Shivam Mavi, they’ve a venomous bowling attack that can demolish any batting line up. Varun Chakravarthy and Kamlesh Nagarkoti too have done well in the opportunity they got in the last match. As for their batting, KKR will be relieved to see Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana and Eoin Morgan back among the runs in the previous game. However, they’ll want Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell to hit the form as quickly as possible All in all, it’s all set up for an enthralling encounter in Dubai. However, RR looks a real force in this tournament and getting past them won’t be a cake walk for the Knight Riders.

Toss Prediction

Toss will be crucial for the teams as the pitch in Dubai is a bat first wicket. Teams chasing have lost all the four matches they’ve been played this IPL on this ground.

Weather Report

The weather in Dubai is expected to be warm with temperature going as high as 39 degrees.

Pitch Condition

The match will be played on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. The pitch in Dubai is a bat first wicket with it getting slower in the second innings. The stats prove the same as all the four matches played on this ground in IPL 2020 has been won by the team batting first. If the team batting first can get past 180, it would be very hard for the opposition to chase.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians IPL Match Prediction

The 5th match of the Indian Premier League will be played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi and the match will get underway at 6:00 PM local time on September 23. Both teams are laced with some outstanding players in their squads and it would be foolish to pick a clear winner between the two. However, Mumbai, having already played a game on the ground have a definite advantage.

Moreover, apart from Eoin Morgan, who led England against Australia in the recently concluded ODI series, not many KKR players have played cricket of late. It won’t be easy for them to immediately get into their grooves. Just like Mumbai in their first game, they too will find it difficult to get used to the conditions.

Mumbai have a 19 – 6 win record against Kolkata in the 25 games they’ve played against each other. This gives a psychological advantage to Mumbai Indians.

Toss Prediction

Toss could go either way but the team winning the toss should bowl first to get the best bowling conditions..

Weather Report

The weather at Abu Dhabi is expected to make the players sweat with temperatures touching 40 degree Celsius.

Pitch Condition

The match will be played on the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Not a lot of cricket has been played on this ground of late but the 1st game of the Indian Premier League has showed that the pitches here will be good cricketing wickets with something in it for the batsmen and bowlers. Team winning the toss should opt to bowl first to extract the freshness of the wicket. Also, with around, batting second will be much easier. Team batting first must eye a target of 180+ to get their opposition under pressure.
