KKR VS RR MATCH PREDICTION & ANALYSIS
The Kolkata Knight Riders and the Rajasthan Royals are going to be playing their final group game of IPL 2020 and both of them have a chance to qualify for the playoffs. In fact, as we write this, only Mumbai Indians have qualified for the playoffs and there are six teams all with a chance of locking up the remaining three spots.
No match is a dead rubber just yet and that shows the quality and class of the IPL.
What do KKR and RR need to do to qualify? Win. The loser is eliminated and the winner then has to wait for some other results to go their way. Also, the bigger the margin of victory, the better for the winning team since NRR could be a part of the final qualification.
KKR vs RR IPL 2020 is going to be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on the 1st of November 2020.
KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS
KKR batted pretty well in its match against CSK but could not defend the total. Ravindra Jadeja came in and smashed the bowlers at the end to prevent the team from taking a decisive step towards qualification. Things are tricky for KKR as it takes on an in-form RR team.
The batting continues to be problematic for KKR.
They added Rinku Singh to the team and while that added another batsman to the lineup, we are not sure it added too much quality. Also, the decision to send him above Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik in a crucial match was just bewildering.
There is a time to blood in youngsters and a time to take responsibility. KKR must ask more of its senior batsmen. One unknown is the status of Andre Russell. He has been missing for the last few matches and we don’t think he will play again this season. If he does turn up somehow then it immediately makes KKR more dangerous.
Gill and Rana will have a very tough examination from Archer upfront but they can take advantage of the other RR bowlers. KKR has to avoid losing early wickets because it does not have the depth to recover from them.
Lockie Ferguson and Pat Cummins will lead the bowling attack. Sunil Narine and Varu Chakravarthy add some class in the bowling department but Kamlesh Nagarkoti is a weak link. We may see Prasiddh Krishna come in for him for this match.
Kolkata Knight Riders Playing 11
Playing 11 not yet available.
Ben Stokes has roared into form at just the right time for RR. He has been the reason why RR has managed to chase down two big totals with ease in their previous two matches. Of course, the contribution of Sanju Samson cannot be underestimated either but the base set by Stokes is very important.
RR has barely needed Jos Buttler in the previous two chases and that should be scary for opposition teams. He came in smashed 22 runs from 11 balls to put the cherry on top but every single person who batted for RR made a difference.
Uthappa at the top, Stokes, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, and Jos Buttler. Suddenly, this batting lineup is looking strong and has a lot in store. Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, and Jofra Archer all can bat and have in fact made important contributions in IPL 2020.
In terms of pure batting strength and form, hardly any team can match RR at the moment. They have a clear advantage over KKR in this respect.
The bowling is a work in progress for RR. Jofra Archer and the spinners are very good and dependable. However, Steve Smith may need to hold back the spinners against certain matchups and that means Ben Stokes has to step up. He bowled four overs in the previous match but he may not want to do so in every game to stay completely fit.
That leaves two bowlers that are a bit of a worry. Varun Aaron went for a lot of runs in the previous match as did Kartik Tyagi. There are not too many options for RR to turn to in the squad and we think RR might just stick with the same lineup as they are winning.

KKR VS RR TOSS PREDICTION
The team that wins the toss is likely to want to field first. There seems to be some dew that descends later in the match and makes the job a bit easier for the chasing team.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Dubai has been a bit slow in terms of the pitches that it has offered, however, there is always something for the batsmen as well. We have seen so far the competition between the bat and ball pretty even in Dubai and can expect the same to be the case for this match as well.
A total of around 170 seems to be the par for the course.

KKR VS RR BETTING TIPS

Bet on the Rajasthan Royals to win.
Our Favorite Bets
Sanju Samson Total Sixes – Over 0.5 ($1.75) (Betway)
This is our favorite bet for this match. The sixes market has been our most profitable one yet and this is another example of the value that you can get. Sanju Samson has hit more sixes than any other player in IPL 2020. He is in great form and has scored run in the previous two matches. Getting a 75% return on your stake is incredible. Take the money.
Team Highest 1st 6 Overs – Rajasthan Royals ($1.86) (10Cric)
The Rajasthan Royals have two advantages in this bet. Not only do they have an in-form opening pair that is going hard at the top but they also have Jofra Archer to make it difficult for the other team. We think this is a good bet for anyone to consider.
Winner Highest Opening Partnership – Kolkata Knight Riders ($1.86) (ComeOn)
This bet will act as a hedge for the prior one so you can think of taking both of them together. If things go well then you could win both very easily. KKR has a more stable opening pair but they tend to take their time. Once they do get set, you can see them scoring big.
Player to score the Most Sixes – Sanju Samson ($7.00) (1xBet)
Samson is striking the ball beautifully and looks set to get a big score under his belt. We have no doubt that is going to hit plenty of sixes if he bets for any length of time. This is a risky bet for sure but the returns of 7x are hard to ignore.
