The RR batting squad has comfortably reached the double century mark in both of their previous games. Top-notch defensive bowling will be the need of the hour from KKR if they are to restrict their opposition from landing a ginormous knock once again.
Even though their batting squad has been spectacular, RR bowlers have been giving away too many runs, something KKR batsmen will try to take an advantage of if they are to chase a huge total. Kolkata Knight Riders will pull off a win.
