Beleaguered Rajasthan Royals, who are stuck at the bottom of the points table, will face another lowly-placed team – Kolkata Knight Riders in an Indian Premier League 2021 match at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday night. While Royals have managed just one win in four matches and have the worst net run rate among all teams, their opponents KKR too have been finding the going tough.
They also have one win in four games but are ahead of both RR and Punjab Kings on net run rate. KKR’s net run rate could, however, have been poorer had their lower order not clicked in the last match against CSK. The batting performance of Andre Russell and the rise of Pat Cummins as a batsman in their 18-run defeat to CSK will provide a big boost but it can’t paper over the failure of their star batsmen, who have floundered even while chasing even modest target.
The seamers too have leaked runs in the death overs. Having struggled on Chepauk’s slow surface, KKR had hoped to return to winning ways at the Wankhede but Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad took their attack to the cleaners and amassed a massive 220 for 3 in their previous match.
