IPL 2018: RR vs KKR, Which player will create the greatest impact?

15samson2

Meanwhile, the Kolkata Knight Riders led by Dinesh Karthik won the first match of the tournament against Royal Challengers Bengaluru.

What is the likely Playing XI of the match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab?

The in-frame Rajasthan Royals will be certain of a third back to back triumph when they go up against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League in Rajasthan's Jaipur on Wednesday.

The batting group finally produced a consistent performance for Rajasthan with D'Arcy Short the only man missing out (11 from 17) and he looks short on time at the crease still.

Lucrative contracts in popular Twenty20 Leagues are being preferred over national contracts, posing a significant threat to quality of global cricket, a Federation of worldwide Cricketers Association (FICA) report has claimed.


Despite the results, both teams have reason to worry.

While the runs have been flowing in the year's IPL with no total being safe, bowlers have caught the short end of the stick on many occasions. While Rajasthan Royals got off to an exciting start, a bit of a middle order collapse saw them finishing at 161 runs. 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. More than the runs, the command with which he has scored those runs make it far more impactful and pleasing to the eye. Ajinkya Rahane, as well, is a batsman to look out for- just for the calmness with which he approaches his innings.

Kolkata Knight Riders: Dinesh Karthik (c and WK), 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 and Tom Curran. But the batsman who took away all the limelight last night was Andre Russell who trailblazed to his 41 runs off just 12 balls hitting 6 sixes. The lesson: play straight against the spinners. Rajasthan won their first point in the match against Delhi Daredevils that was actually disrupted by the rain.

An exciting contest lies ahead from Jaipur. The match starts at 20:00 IST (14:30 GMT).
