43rd match of IPL 2019 : KKR vs RR
Both teams are facing each other second time in IPL 2019. KKR won in their first match. Both teams have lost their last match but now they will try to win their remaining matches to qualify in play-offs. This match will be at KKR home ground Eden Gardens. Here we will discuss about the possible playing XI of KKR vs RR match.
Kolkata Knight Riders
After a good start in IPL 2019 they have lost back to back 5 matches. One of the reasons of their losses is over dependence on Andre Russell. KKR have played 10 matches so far in IPL 2019 and has won 4 matches. They are at 6th position in points table with 8 points. But now they have to find a winning way in IPL 2019.
Possible Playing XI : Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Piyush Chawla, KC Cariappa, Harry Gurney, Yarra Prithviraj.
Rajasthan Royals has not able to maintain their winning momentum. They have lost some very close matches where they could have win. RR has played 10 matches so far but has been successful in winning only 3 matches. They are at 7th position with 6 points. Now they have to win remaining all matches. Losing even a single match can disqualify them from play-offs of IPL 2019. After this match some big players of RR will leave the team like Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. The good news for KKR is Ajinkya Rahane is back in form. He scored a brilliant century in last match. It seems that releasing him from captaincy has improved his performance. Steven Smith was handed over the captaincy recently.
Possible Playing XI : Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson(w), Steven Smith(c), Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni
