Dream11 IPL 2020: Playing XI prediction for Rajasthan Royals for today’s match against KKR

Advertisement

Rajasthan Royals have begun their Dream11 IPL 2020 campaign brilliantly. They have won both their matches so far and their team looks perfectly balanced with each game as the tournament progresses.

Captain Steve Smith promoted himself to the opening spot alongside Jos Buttler in the batting and it has payed off tremendously. The two batsmen up top are very key in providing a great start to the batting innings for RR. Sanju Samson, who comes in to bat after the two openers has looked like a real artist with the bat in his hand. He has absolutely smashed the ball to all parts of the ground with proper ‘textbook’ cricketing shots. Having scored half centuries in both the games so far, Samson will be looking to emulate his form and maintain his name among the top run-scorers of the tournament.

Jofra has looked good with the ball as usual, however his power hitting with the bat has been far more impressive in the first 2 games, playing important cameos at the end in both of them. Rahul Tewatia showed his heroics in the last game helping the Royals score more than 50 runs in the last 3 overs to chase a mammoth of a total set by Kings XI Punjab. The bowling department is a one of concern for Rajasthan as Jaydev Unadkat and Shreyas Gopal have not yet fired up this season, but who is to say that those two would not improve considerably as the season goes on to make RR an even better force than they are at the moment.

Rajasthan Royals predicted XI: 1 Jos Buttler (wk), 2 Steven Smith (capt), 3 Sanju Samson, 4 Robin Uthappa, 5 Riyan Parag, 6 Rahul Tewatia, 7 Shreyas Gopal, 8 Tom Curran, 9 Jofra Archer, 10 Ankit Rajpoot, 11 Jaydev Unadkat
