Cricket Match Preview:

Rajasthan Royals (RR) would have heaved a huge sigh of relief after their last cricket game, where they registered their first win after four cricket games. They had been undefeated up until their third cricket game, where they met another winless side Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and got their first win. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), on the other hand, got their first loss in their last game against Delhi Capitals (DC).

RR had a huge controversy in their first game due to Kings XI Punjab’s (KXIP’s) skipper R Ashwin running out Jos Butler in a controversial manner. However, despite playing good cricket in the second cricket game, they could not win the game due to David Warner’s brilliance while chasing the score. RR’s Sanju Samson scored the first century of this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) but it was not enough for RR to secure the win.

KKR, on the other hand, have begun well in the tournament. They were unbeaten after their first two games and almost stole the third one as well after holding DC for a tie. The game of cricket was then decided by the super over in which Delhi’s Kagiso Rabada bowled the over of the tournament to win the game for DC.

RR had another close cricket game but this time, they got over the line courtesy of their bowling, which improved a great deal from their cricket game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Their batsmen also finished the game this time rather than throw away the starts. They would now look to continue their winning momentum and win as many cricket games as possible before their overseas stars leave for national duty.

KKR had an injury scare in their last cricket game when their star performer Andre Russell got an external injury from the delivery of Harshal Patel in their last cricket game. It would be a big blow for KKR if Andre Russell misses out of their next game as he has been the prime reason for their success in the IPL 2019 so far.

Cricket Match Information:

RR and KKR will take on each other in their fifth cricket game of the IPL 2019. RR opened their account in their last cricket game against RCB, whereas KKR had their first loss in their last cricket game against DC in the super over.  

Rajasthan Royals

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

RR are being led by Ajinkya Rahane this year as well. They got their first win of the tournament in their last game against RCB. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of RR’s playing XI:

  • Ajinkya Rahane
  • Jos Butler
  • Ben Stokes
  • Jofra Archer
  • Krishnappa Gowtham
  • Sanju Samson
  • Rahul Tripathi
  • Dhawal Kulkarni
  • Shreyas Gopal
  • Steve Smith
  • Jaidev Unadkat

Kolkata Knight Riders

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

KKR are being led by Dinesh Karthik for the second season in a row. KKR got off to a great start in this year’s IPL. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of KKR’s playing XI:

  • Shubhman Gill
  • Chris Lynn
  • Sunil Narine
  • Andre Russell
  • Nitish Rana
  • Dinesh Karthik
  • Prasidh Krishna
  • Piyush Chawla
  • Lokie Ferguson
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Robin Uthappa

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

This cricket game will see the might of overseas stars clashing with each other. Chris Lynn, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine of KKR versus Ben Stokes, Jos Butler and Steve Smith of RR. Our prediction is of the victory of that team whose overseas stars outperform the other team’s stars.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The pitch in Jaipur is beautiful to bat as was evident in the first home game of RR against KXIP. RR nearly pulled the run chase against KXIP before losing the way during the last stage of the cricket game. Our prediction is of a score of around 170 this time around as well. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

KKR will begin this game of cricket as slight favourites. They have a better overall record against RR in the last few cricket games and will look to recover from their loss against DC. Hence, our prediction is of KKR’s victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Nitish Rana (KKR) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Kuldeep Yadav (KKR) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Andre Russell (KKR)
