RR vs KKR VIVO IPL 2021 Match 18 Preview:
The eighteenth match of VIVO IPL 2021 will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. Both the teams have played four games till now and both have won only one of these four games.
Rajasthan Royals have won only one out of four games they have played and has woes in both the batting and bowling department. The top-order of the team has crumbled time and again and the bowling department lacks the spearhead to penetrate the opposition batting lineup. In the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), after losing the toss, Rajasthan Royals were invited to bat first and the top-order again surrendered against the bowling of the opposition.
Jos Buttler scored just 8 runs while Manan Vohra departed for just 7, skipper Sanju Samson scored 21 runs while David Miller was trapped for a duck. With the help of 46 runs off 32 deliveries from Shivam Dube, 40 runs off 23 deliveries from Rahul Tewatia, and 25 runs from Riyan Parag, the team reached a decent total of 177 runs.
While defending this total, the bowlers failed to even pick even a single wicket and the team faced a huge defeat by 10 wickets. The team is still positioned at the bottom of the table and must try to improve in the concerned areas.
Talking about Kolkata Knight Riders, this team also has its own issues in the middle-order, the bowling department has failed to perform collectively as a team, and out of form skipper, Eoin Morgan is also one of its major weaknesses. The team is positioned at 6th place in the points table after winning one out of four games they have played so far. In the last game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the team decided to bowl first after winning the toss.
In response to this, Chennai Super Kings reached a mammoth total of 220 runs. Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine, and Andre Russell picked one wicket each. While chasing this total, the top-order of Kolkata Knight Riders collapsed and was on the verge of a one-sided defeat.
With the help of explosive innings of 54 runs off 22 deliveries from Andre Russell, 66 runs off 34 deliveries from Pat Cummins and a supporting 40 runs off 24 deliveries from Dinesh Karthik, the team gave an overwhelming fight to the opposition but failed to convert it into a victory. The team must be looking positively to perform in the next game and get two important points for the side.
Out of a total of 23 clashes between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders in VIVO IPL, Rajasthan won 10 games and Kolkata won 12 games while one of the games went result-less.
