Team updates & latest news.
A team which just above RCB in the table which is second last, with only a single win last game. They need a strong performance to make a comeback in the tournament. Batting is always top notch with Sanju-Rahane combination with Steve Smith & R Tripathi in the middle order. Bowling is always the problem for them, Unadkat lost his position in team because of expensive death overs in first batting games. They may replace Stuart Binny for Sanju Samson who injured and didn’t played last match.
Kolkata Knight Riders.
Everytime they were in trouble, Andre Russell came & rescued the team, feels exactly like what Leo Messi does in Barcelona. Last match he was ruthless in death overs 49*(14) which gave them a huge victory. So this time also it won’t be different, will they make any changes to batting order by giving him a rise to top let’s wait & see. Bowlers were expensive last match, so team management will be looking into it. Lockie Ferguson was a huge disappointment these 4 matches without a wicket. Can Dinesh Karthik & Co rise to top of the table after this game will it be like picking up flower, we too are excited for Sunday bash.

Our match prediction.
KKR – 70%
RR – 30%
Andre Russell will be the key, if Jofra Archer can get him out in death overs or any other overs, then it will be the crucial point in the match. Also Rahane-Jos Butler combo should shine if they are batting first to reach a higher total. Sanju will be back after not playing last game – which is biggest positive for the team.
Toss – KKR will be keen to bat first, to make a huge total without any pressure. RR will be like to do the same.
