IPL 2018: KKR vs RR Preview

IPL 2018 Our destiny is in our hands says KKR coach Jacques Kallis

It certainly is the most important for the two teams involved in it as Kolkata Knight Riders will host Rajasthan Royals at Eden Gardens tonight.

As the race for the remaining two spots intensifies, KKR, following its remarkable roller-coaster ride, will be keen to finish its home engagement on a high and inch closer to a playoffs spot. Even Bet365.com give KKR the slight edge with an odds of 4:6 as compared to RR's 6:5.

Kolkata will again witness the battle of runs in between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.

They defeated Kings XI Punjab by 31 runs by piling up the season's highest total of 245/6, fourth highest in IPL history.

Rajasthan Royals: Ajinkya Rahane (captain), D Arcy Short, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Jofra Archer, Krishnappa Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ankit Sharma, Anureet Singh, Ish Sodhi, Prashant Chopra, Sudhesan Midhun, Ben Laughlin, Mahipal Lomror, Aryaman Birla, Jatin Saxena, Dushmantha Chameera, Rahul Tripathi, Heinrich Klaasen.

Stevens says praise he has received for Celtics' success is 'silly'
Yet, he isn't being recognised for his achievements, and this has annoyed one of his former players in Isaiah Thomas . And those other guys that get votes, they're unbelievable. "And the guy that should have won got it". "It's silly.

Buttler hit six boundaries in an over for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL on the day he was recalled to England's Test squad. With 14 points, KKR will be at the third position.

Known to be slow starters, Mumbai Indians looked like down and out of the playoff contention, but they made a remarkable comeback in the second half of tournament and put themselves in playoff contention.

Despite all such positives off late, skipper Ajinkya Rahane has been impressive enough with bat this season but he has managed to deliver with his tactical captaincy.

KKR: Dinesh Karthik (captain), Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Mitchell Johnson, Shubman Gill, R. Vinay Kumar, Rinku Singh, Cameron Delport, Javon Searless, Apoorv Wankhade, Ishank Jaggi, Tom Curran.

KKR and RR are tied with Kings XI Punjab at 12 points with two league games each left for the three teams. What works in the visitors' favour is that they seem to be peaking at the right time, but KKR have the home advantage on Tuesday. Skipper Karthik has quietly done his job in the batting and averages a healthy 46.37 (371 runs) and he too will eye a good show with the bat on Tuesday. The result for this match is extremely hard to predict as both teams will give it their all to ensure a Play-offs berth. We can expect another 175 to 180 score in this game. With two games to go and everything to play for, they need Buttler to continue his outstanding run. He can drive the game on his won with minimal support from other batsmen. "As far as rest of the teams are concerned, we are not really anxious about what they are doing".
