Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals are both placed neck to neck on points table and are equally matched teams in terms of firepower. Both have a set of veteran and rookies in their line-up, we take a look at some duels that will set the tone right for a riveting clash.
Sunil Narine vs. Shane Watson
Purple cap holder Sunil Narine with his variations can perplex the batsmen anytime and can give Royals captain Shane Watson a tough time in the middle. Watson is a vital cog in RR batting while Narine is KKR’s trump card. Both will be looking to nullify each other.
Ajinkya Rahane vs. Morne Morkel
Ajinkya Rahane has been scoring consistently and quickly at top for Rajasthan Royals, his team will be looking for him to deliver once again and counter Morne Morkel who for KKR has been bowling amazing spells. While Rahane will be looking to attack right from the go, Morne will look to contain Rahane.
Jacques Kallis vs. Pravin Tambe
Both these players are in their 40’s but age doesn’t seem to bother them. Kallis plays a sheet anchor role in KKR batting line-up and hardly throws his wicket away. So all eyes will be on Pravin Tambe who has been all over the places with his wicket taking abilities how he tangles the South African great.
