Match analysis and Fantasy Cricket Tips: KKR vs RR


Rajasthan Royals:


Team News:

  • Jofra Archer, Heinrich Klaasen are available for selection. Don't be surprised if you see them in starting 11 any time without notice.

  • They might be aware of Russel’s onslaught and may try archer to provide a similar boost to their side.

  • Darcy Short, however, has been tried thrice. He was run out two times and looked completely unaware the third time. He may, however, be given another chance


Our Pick: Jofra Archer may replace Laughlin. Heinrich Klaasen for Short may also be on the cards. But, who wants to change the winning combination on the same pitch?


Probable 11:

Ajinkya Rahane (c), D'Arcy Short, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi, Jos Buttler, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ben Laughlin, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat


Kolkata Knight Riders:

  • No change expected.

  • Shivam Mavi atleast is expected to retain his place

  • Gill is only a floater and can be replaced in this line. He is an investment for the future.

  • They have been switching between Tom Curran and Mitchell Johnson in all these matches. So, by the record it might be Johnson’s turn. However, it is expected they might persist with Curran for a few matches now.

Probable XI: KKR

Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (c), Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Shivam Mavi, Piyush Chawla, Tom Curran, Kuldeep Yadav


Fantasy 11:



  • Sanju Samson and Nitish Rana have been the most influential player.

  • Robin Uthappa showed signs of coming back to form in the last match and same goes for Lynn. But a change in pitch from there and a particular style of batting may not suit them.

  • Naraine and Russell are automatic selections in and dream team.

  • Sanju Samson, Nitish Rana and Naraine are good choices for captain.
