KkR vs RR. 2nd game

01-NOV-2020, 07:30 PM
54th Match (N), Dubai (DSC), Nov 1 2020,


https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/804 ... ue-2020-21


Big picture
Ben Stokes is firing, with bat and ball. Sanju Samson seems to have rediscovered his early season form. Jos Buttler is prepared to play finisher. And Jofra Archer - bubble fatigue or not - is almost unplayable. Talk about peaking at the almost-too-late-but-not-quite time.

The Rajasthan Royals are still in IPL 2020. They will stay there with a victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday but they will need help from elsewhere if they are to qualify for the playoffs. Both teams will be keeping an especially watchful eye on the evening game because if the Kings XI Punjab win that, things get dicey.

The Knight Riders are in a similar position. But the problem is their net run-rate (-0.467) is so low that they will not only have to win their last match, they have to hope no other team ties with them on 14 points.

In the news
If ever there was a time for Andre Russell, it is now. But the allrounder hasn't played a game in two weeks and in the absence of any update from the Knight Riders, it is likely that he won't be fit for this one either.

Likely XIs
Kolkata Knight Riders: 1 Shubman Gill, 2 Nitish Rana, 3 Rahul Tripathi, 4 Sunil Narine, 5 Eoin Morgan (capt), 6 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 7 Rinku Singh/Prasidh Krishna, 8 Pat Cummins, 9 Lockie Ferguson, 10 Kamlesh Nagarkoti, 11 Varun Chakravarthy

Rajasthan Royals: 1 Ben Stokes, 2 Robin Uthappa, 3 Sanju Samson (wk), 4 Steven Smith (capt), 5 Jos Buttler, 6 Riyan Parag, 7 Rahul Tewatia, 8 Jofra Archer, 9 Shreyas Gopal, 10 Varun Aaron/Ankit Rajpoot, 11 Kartik Tyagi


Intense, focused - Ben Stokes warms up BCCI
Previous meeting
Defending 174, the Knight Riders' fast bowlers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti ripped through the Royals - four of the top five fell for single digits - to seal a 37-run win.

Strategy punt
Sunil Narine is the Knight Riders' best asset right now. And with their campaign hanging by a thread, they have to start the game well. Only, they aren't taking any wickets in the powerplay. Well, they have eight across the whole season, which is the worst by any team. So maybe they should unleash their trump card in the first six overs. Plus, here are Narine's T20 head-to-heads with the Royals' top order: Stokes (17 balls, 17 runs, one dismissal), Samson (45 balls, 39 runs, three dismissals), Steven Smith (42 balls, 47 runs, two dismissals), Buttler (41 balls, 43 runs, two dismissals).

The Royals have struggled to find a good bowling partner for Archer at the top of the innings. Perhaps they could try Shreyas Gopal. The legspinner is at his best in the powerplay (eight IPL wickets at an average of 13 and economy rate of 7), and he isn't half bad at bowling to left-handers - the Knight Riders have a lot of those - with 13 IPL wickets at an average of 24.46 and economy rate of 7.45.

Stats that matter
Stokes has shown dramatic improvement over the past two matches. Where he could only go at a strike rate of 110 in the powerplay during his first five matches of the season, he is now whacking it with a strike rate of 195.

Varun Chakravarthy is the only fingerspinner with more than ten wickets this IPL. The only spinners with more than his tally (15) are Yuzvendra Chahal (18) and Rashid Khan (17).

Samson has recorded the most 30-plus scores (five) for the Royals this year. He has recorded the most single-digit scores (six) for them as well.

Fourteen of Archer's 19 wickets this season have been of top-order batsmen. The next (and slightly distant) best is Chahal with ten top-order wickets.

So CSK have taken KXIP out of the tournament with them. The loser of the next match will join them.

If RR win tonight - and I hope that they do - I would not put it past the filthy MI management to get their minions to throw their match against SRH to keep RR out. SRH are too far ahead on NRR fir RR to catch up and unless they lose against MI, SRH will qualify ahead of RR. MI are safe in first position but they would rather let SRH qualify since on current form RR are the only team who can beat the cheating, flea-ridden MI scum.

Indian Premier League

TEAM M W L PT NRR

MI 13 9 4 18 1.296
RCB 13 7 6 14 -0.145
DC 13 7 6 14 -0.159
SRH 13 6 7 12 0.555

KXIP 14 6 8 12 -0.162
RR 13 6 7 12 -0.377
CSK 14 6 8 12 -0.455
KKR 13 6 7 12 -0.467

KKR net run rate is only -0.467

Even if KKR wins this game over RR, their net run rate should beat DC and SRH (in case SRH wins the next match over mumbai)
They cant match SRH run rate, so they can only aim to beat DC net run rate of -0.159 & RCB run rate of -0.145 if they win this game HUGE.

Winner of DC vs RCB goes to final 4. The loser just need to beat KKR run rate.

So its a must for KKR to win with huge margin today!!

Mumbai is already top of table at #1 with a bye. So they might rest key players for inconsequential game vs SRH, which works for SRH advantage, would put cold water in KKR fire. :)

KKR should not let RR to go past 111, then they would surpass both RCB and DC on net run-rate. hahahahaha
The loser of RCB vs DC game would get kicked out in case SRH win over mumbai later.

Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, 55th Match

Starts at 19:30 IST, Nov 02 (14:00 GMT)
Beat Rashid on My11Circle & Win 2X Cash. #PlayWithChampions
Commentary


Delhi v Bangalore, Match 55: Preview
Preview by Ganesh Chandrasekaran

The contest for a spot in the top two comes under circumstances where both teams have seemingly forgotten how to win. Delhi Capitals (4 losses on the trot) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (3 losses on the trot) will be left scratching their heads over how quickly things changed around them. They're now left pondering if they had peaked too early or if they've run out of steam. Either way, if even one of the two misses out on qualification, it'll leave them in a very difficult spot to bounce back from. For such had been their first-half, that this scenario now was unthinkable even a week ago.

But both sides will also be able to identify a number of things that need to go better for them. For Delhi Capitals, the fixes rangefrom reading the conditions right to identifying their best eleven. They'd be desperate for one of their team members to step up at this juncture and lead the team ahead, which remained one of the noticeable features of their first-half.

RCB, too, will need similar inspiration, particularly from two of their big guns - Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. Such has been the duo's influence on the team's fortunes so far that they've combined to it 6 fifties in RCB's 7 wins of the tournament. Only once has a fifty from either of them resulted in a loss. But it is this dependence that has also been a bane, particularly for the middle order that hasn't fired if either of these two fizzles out.

What'll help RCB's cause is their superior record in Abu Dhabi so far. They've won two of their three games here, whereas Delhi have lost all three of their outings at this venue. This ought to be playing on the heads of both teams and could possibly give RCB a psychological edge.

When:2nd November at 19:30 IST

Where:Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

What to expect: It's a venue that has seen a heavy bias for sides chasing, especially in the latter half of the tournament. Only 3 out of the first 9 games saw successful chases whereas 7 out of the last 8 games have won by teams chasing. The toss is set to play a critical role, thus.

Qualification scenarios:It's pretty straightforward to get to the No.2 spot - the winner gets that spot with 16 points. The loser will be wary of a few other results going their way to ensure that they don't fall behind the NRR even if they're tied on 14 points with other teams.

Team News

Delhi Capitals:Can they afford to experiment even more in a critical game? Will it be worthwhile to bring back the experienced Axar Patel instead of Pravin Dubey? A lot of questions with no easy answers for Delhi Capitals.

Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Pravin Dubey/Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Anrich Nortje




Virat Kohli will be conscious of improving his strike rate: Shaun Pollock
Royal Challengers Bangalore: A troubled middle order will be the biggest cause of concern for RCB's think-tank. Could Moeen Ali pave his way back in? Will they also have another look at Shivam Dube?

Probable XI: Devdutt Padikkal, Josh Philippe, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Washington Sundar, Gurkeerat Singh/Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana/Moeen Ali, Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini

Did you know?

-Since 2019 Delhi Capitals have won all the encounters against RCB.

- DC have lost a wicket in the opening over in eight of their 13 matches. Interestingly, the only side that hasn't picked a wicket in their first over of bowling this season is RCB.

What they said

We'll have to think about it (changes to the line-up) and be fearless in our approach. We'll keep things simple and will not try to think much. - Shreyas Iyerhad said after the defeat in their previous game.

It's a terrible feeling to lose three in a row, you never want to do that. But that's the nature of this tournament, anything can happen: if you lose three in a row, you can win three in a row as well. The Delhi game is a big game we all know that. We're going to have to come out with our best cricket on the day. If we do, things will look up very well for us. - AB de Villiers after the loss against SRH

Squads:

Royal Challengers Bangalore Squad: Josh Philippe, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli(c), AB de Villiers(w), Washington Sundar, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Parthiv Patel, Dale Steyn, Aaron Finch, Umesh Yadav, Moeen Ali, Pawan Negi, Adam Zampa, Pavan Deshpande, Shivam Dube, Shahbaz Ahmed
