In the 12th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) on Wednesday, Rajasthan Royals will now lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders. The match will be played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Both the teams have won their last match, so it will be quite interesting to see who gets the most in this match.
Rajasthan has played two matches so far in which they have won both and are second in the points table after Delhi Capitals. Apart from this, under the captaincy of Dinesh Karthik, KKR has won one of the two matches while losing one. The team is at number six with two points in the points table.
Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers will need to be cautious in this match as the Rajasthan Royals batsmen are in excellent form at the moment. Apart from the likes of captain Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, now Rahul Tewatia has also become the concerns for bowlers. He gave his team a historic win by hitting five sixes in the same over of Punjab’s fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell.
KKR bowlers bowled brilliantly against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Because of this, the team got a target of only 143 runs which they easily achieved due to the excellent innings of young Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan.
