RR vs KKR Live Score, IPL 2020 Match Today: Russell-mania vs Smith show in focus as Royals take on Riders? – cricket

IPL 2020 Live Score, Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR): Rajasthan Royals look unbeatable at the moment especially with a strong batting line-up of Steve Smith, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer. If there is one weakness in RR line-up, it is their bowling. Kolkata Knight Riders have got big hitters in their team and it is highly probably they will be looking to employ their big guns against the likes of Jaydev Unadkat and Ankit Rajpoot who all have struggled so far. But KKR, too, do not have the best of the bowling line-ups, and if RR top order gets going, this can turn into a one-way contest.

RR vs KKR, IPL 2020: Eoin Morgan speaks

Eoin Morgan speaks ahead of KKR’s IPL 2020 contest against RR: “They have a very experienced side. The challenge for us is to focus on our game. If we can improve from the last game, then that will allow us to execute strategies against Smith, Buttler and Samson to try and make inroads. The honest answer is they are good players and if they bat 20 overs then you are probably going to lose the game. Particularly Buttler and Samson. They’ve had some good success but they are missing Ben Stokes at the moment. Hopefully, we can build from the last game and get our first win in Dubai.” – Eoin Morgan to kkr.in
