While the top of the table, clash continues to heat up as we move into the business end of the highly viewed Indian Premier League, Thursday sees an inconsequential match take place. It’s the Royals who’ll be taking on KKR as rank 6 and rank 7 take to the middle of the pitch to try and stem their ordeals this season and finally put on an exquisite performance to further add to their lowly points garnered after the 10-match mark.

The main area of contention for RR is their paper thin pace battery. Shelling out a contentious Rs.7 crore plus for Jaydev Unadkat for the second season in a row has proved to be without a doubt one of the murkiest buys of this season with the bowler being mauled with stupendous ease by opposition batsmen. Kulkarni has started falling apart as well and its only Archer who has been the saving grace for the Royals with 15 wickets in 10 matches.

With the side set to miss Buttler yet again with him departing for England for the birth of his side, all the onus will yet again lie on the top order to try and guide their side to a foundation around which their middle-order can revolve. Handing over the captaincy to Smith has worked out for both him and Rahane as the two came good for their side the previous side around.

On the other hand, for KKR it’s all about Lynn and Russell in the batting department. With Unadkat and Kulkarni bowling to Russell, KKR will finally be looking to promote him and make the maximum use of as many overs as he can to score on what should be a batting-friendly surface. We expect KKR, who are on a 5-match winning spree to come out of this with a win and further agonise RR’s woeful season.

Previous Encounters

Previously in the league, the Royals had failed to defend even. In what was a well-rounded and comprehensive chase for the visitors, Pant, Shaw and Dhawan all came up with contributions to take Delhi to a six-wicket win.

KKR were at the end of a thrashing by SRH with a 9-wicket win condemning them to their 5th straight defeat. Bairstow and Warner’s 131 opening stand had taken apart KKR, trouncing them with comfortable ease as they chased down the 160-run target with ease.

Key Battles

Steve Smith Vs Sunil Narine

Being the one player who’s turned by regularly for his side this year, Smith will be the wicket that KKR will be looking to get early. He struggles against spin, finding it tough to move around against the ball coming into his pads and Narine will be well informed of these weaknesses before the match.

Andre Russell Vs Jofra Archer

KKR have for some comical reason decided to send Russell way too down the order on a consistent basis, leaving him way too fewer overs to play his shots in. They’ve ended up paying a massive prize for it and this match should see him be promoted up the order, something that should see Smith turn to Archer to dismiss his early on. Russell has a problem playing the shorter deliveries and balls stinging into his pads at pace and with Archer equipped with both these delivers, this battle could decide the match. tomorrow IPL match KKR Vs RR preview
