BIG GUYS OF RAJASTHAN ROYALS NEED TO PERFORM
For the RR, Sanju Samson has been in a sublime touch with the bat. Sanju Samson is the orange cap holder with 178 runs from just 3 games. But the Rajasthan Royals cannot depend on him every time. The likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Darcy Short, and Ben Stokes need to come good with the bat. Ajinkya Rahane must lead from the front. Ben Stokes too needs to live up to his repute and price tag. Sanju Samson would be the key player for the RR given the form he has shown in IPL 2018 so far.
KKR WOULD BANK BIG ON ANDRE RUSSEL
For the Knight Riders, Andre Russel has been the real hero. He has just been amazing so far and is striking at soaring strike rates. He holds the key to swing any game in KKR’s favor. In IPL 2018 so far, Andre Russel has scored 153 runs in 4 games. Nitish Rana too played a great knock in the previous game. However, a Robin Uthappa special is still due.
The KKR also might want to sort its bowling woes with the pace department. They need to get some stability in the pace department. The spin department looks impressive but KKR needs to come good as a comprehensive bowling unit.
