KKR Team Preview
KKR will play RR for the second time in IPL 2022. KKR lost the match by 7 wickets when both teams met last time on 18 Apr. After CSK & MI, KKR became the lowest performer team in IPL this season and they have also lost their last match also in which they faced DC
KKR Key Players
Shreyas Iyer’s knock of 42 runs against DC in the last match was a bit of a sign of his coming back into form, But he needs something special innings for which he is known for. Everyone knows he is a top-class batsman and can cause damage to RR bowlers.
Aaron Finch is known for batting fearlessly but he has not done this so far for the team. He will have a great chance in this match against RR to show the quality of batting he has. He needs to capitalize on the chances that he has taken start on a few occasions.
Umesh Yadav took 3 wickets in the last match also and so far has taken 14 wickets in the tournament with a decent economy of 7.27. He will be a handy option again with the ball for KKR in this upcoming match against DC.
RR Team Preview
Mumbi Indians won their first match of the tournament by breaking the winning streak of Rajasthan Royals in the last match. RR was able to make only 158 runs which were easily chased by MI by loss of just 5 wickets.
RR Key Players
RR team has become more of a one-man team in IPL 2022 and that is Jos Buttler. He is performing in almost all games and hit 67 runs in the last game also. As he didn’t get support from other batsmen, the team was not able to post a big total on the board. Jos Buttler is absolutely fluent this season and will look to add more runs under his belt in this match also.
Devdutt Padikkal would love to get some runs under these conditions. He has aggressive instincts and will look to attack bowlers from the start. His innings will be key for RR in this match.
Yuzvendra Chahal has had a very successful IPL 2022 season and he is comfortably sitting at the top of the list of highest wicket-takers with 19 wickets to his name. He finished with 1 wicket for 33 runs in the last match but looks to pick more wickets in this match.
