Ipl 2018
Preview of match 15 - KKR vs RR
Playing their second home match of VIVO IPL 2018, Rajasthan Royals take on the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Wednesday. Both the teams have two wins each in IPL 2018 so far, with KKR slightly ahead on net run rate.

The two leading run scorers of this IPL season, Sanju Samson (RR) and Andre Russell (KKR), will look to raise the bar in today's game. Samson, with the highest score of the tournament so far, 92 off just 45 balls, will be eyeing another astounding performance for his team. Rajasthan's hopes are not just on him, but also on their skipper Ajinkiya Rahane, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, who can anytime turn the game around for their team. 

Seamers Dhawal Kulkarni and Jaydev Unadkat are leading Rajasthan's bowling attack. With a 75 per cent win record at their home ground, Rajasthan Royals should make good use of the conditions tonight.   

KKR has some explosive batsmen in this season in their side. So far, Andre Russell batting at number six has proven to be deadly for his opponents. Opener Sunil Narine is another big hitter for the team along with Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana. In addition to their batting, KKR has a stronger bowling unit among the two teams, with the likes of Sunil Narine, Mitchell Johnson, Andre Russell and Kuldeep Yadav who can cause some serious damage. 

Both the teams have scored more than 200 runs in their last outings, turning out winners in their respective games. This game is expected to be a high scoring one.
