Battle of the Bests- Rajasthan Royals about to face KKR Today

Dream 11 IPL 2020 has had some of the craziest battles in the history and has been a roller coaster ride so far. Many of the matches have been absolute nail biters where predictions have gone so wrong. In short, this IPL season has been a true representation of what the tournament Earned a reputation for. The match 12 of this exciting season is between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, tonight at 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT) in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Rajasthan Royals, the current table toppers have won their first 2 matches and seem to be in a great form. Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, failed to perform in their first match but might have gained some confidence after their win in the second match.

Both the teams have played against each other 21 times in the previous editions won 10 matches each and 1 match ended in no result. This shows a cutthroat competition has always existed between the two teams, which makes this match worth watching. Let us take a look at both the teams and their key players.

For Rajasthan Royals, this has been a good season as of yet and they have made higher than 200 in their games. Steve Smith, the captain and opener, has made 2 centuries in both the matches and is likely to continue the same. Sanju Samson, the wicket-keeper batsman, has grabbed all the eye-balls with his stunning performance. The Rahul Tewatia magic (A 31- ball 53) has worked well against KXIP and might continue tonight as well. Jos Buttler, an energetic batsman, might bounce back to his destructive form in this match. Their bowling attack is also good with players like Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Ankit Rajpoot and Shreyas Gopal on the squad.

Kolkata Knight Riders have not crossed the 150 mark in their previous games in this season, but they do have able players to put up a good fight against RR. Andre Russell, the powerhouse, can single-handedly give the RR bowlers a tough time and Shubhman Gill, a promising young player, was a treat to watch in the last game where he hit 5 fours and 2 sixes. Nitish Rana, a handy player and the captain Dinesh Karthik are also among the best players who might do well for the team. Their bowling unit has stars like Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins and Shivam Mavi, who can pose a serious threat to the RR batsmen.

Will RR proceed to get their 3rd victory? Or will KKR successfully stop that?
