RR vs KKR, IPL 2019, Jaipur Weather & Pitch Report: Here's How the Weather Will Behave for Indian Premier League 12's Match Between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Jos Buttler (Rajasthan Royals)
The aggressive wicket-keeper batsman of Royals, Jos Buttler has blown hot-and-cold this season. After nearly taking his team across the winning line against Kings XI Punjab, Buttler finally held the fort in his side’s first win in IPL 12, against RCB. Buttler will be urged to take the weak KKR bowling lineup around the park on Sunday.
Jofra Archer (Rajasthan Royals)
The dark horse of the Royals’ team, Jofra Archer has silently contributed significantly in Rajasthan’s campaign this season. The three losses don’t justify his contribution to the team, but his personal stats are enough a reason to believe that if RR wants to keep their victory-meter ticking, Archer will have to play a huge role in the match – by both, batting and bowling.

Robin Uthappa (Rajasthan Royals)
The dashing right-handed batsman has been a vital cog in KKR’s successful campaign in this season. His consistent performances have helped the team with a cushion of stability in the middle order, which was largely missing earlier. If KKR wants to set a daunting target or chase an indomitable one, the team would need Robbie to fire in the match and ensure that he stays till the end.
Nitish Rana (Kolkata Knight Riders)
The left-handed batsman has begun this season so brilliantly that he is on the fourth spot of ‘Most Runs’ table this season (till MI vs SRH match on April 6). Nitish Rana has played consistently and will have to again come good against a weak Royals’ bowling lineup to boost KKR’s chances of winning the match. It will be interesting to see how he copes with the adverse conditions at the SMS Stadium in Jaipur.
Andre Russell (Kolkata Knight Riders)
The less said the better. Russell has scored 207 runs off only 77 balls this season, which suggests that every third ball he has faced in the match, he has scored a boundary. Such has been his batting prowess that he has not only helped KKR come out of crunch situations, but has taken them across the finish line single-handedly. The fans will be waiting for another Dre Russ’ special, later today. RR vs KKR, Match 21 IPL 2019 Preview: Confident Kolkata Knight Riders Up Against Rajasthan Royals.
