IPL 2024: Predicting RR’s Playing XI for their clash against KKR  

In this article, we will discuss IPL 2024 for the Predicting RR’s Playing XI for their clash against KKR. It might be the last game of the league phase stages of the Indian Premier League 2024 season but a lot is riding on it for the men in pink. If Sunrisers Hyderabad win their final game of the season against Punjab Kings the pressure will be on the Royals to win their game as well.

Failure to beat Kolkata Knight Riders will push Sanju Samson’s team down to the third spot thus missing out on a chance to play the first playoff match on Tuesday. Such a scenario could land a cruel blow on the Royals who have been playing top-notch cricket.

It is the last chance for some of the players to put their hands up and be counted. With the season coming to its end, Royals players and the team management will want to work that extra hard to win their 2nd IPL title.

Here is the likely Rajasthan Royals against KKR

Top order – Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, and Sanju Samson

One thing that the Royals will hope for the game on Sunday is that their top order fires with the bat. Yashasvi Jaiswal has been in good form with Twithinn the last few months and his ability to dominate the spinners and pacers has been greatly appreciated. England’s Tom Kohler-Cadmore has just made his IPL debut and he will want to make sure he doesn’t show any nerves. Sanju Samson too will have a huge task on his hand not only as a batter and a wicketkeeper but also as the captain to ensure his side ends the season on a positive note.

Middle-Order – Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, and Shubham Dubey

The cricket-crazy fans in Assam will be at their loudest when their local boy Riyan Parag comes out to bat. The 22-year-old has been one of the biggest improved players this season. Dhruv Jurel has had a quiet time with the bat barring his half-century against LSG he doesn’t have much for his side. Shubham Dubey also will have a huge point to prove as he is known to be a destructive batter.

Lower Middle-order – Rovman Powell and Ravichandran Ashwin

In the very few chances he has got, Rovman Powell has been impressive with the bat. His performances this season have shown why the Royals were right to go for him during the IPL 2024 auctions. Ravichandran Ashwin has answered the calls for better showing and vindicated the faith that Samson showed him with his wicket-taking skills in the last few games.

Bowlers – Avesh Khan, Trent Boult, and Yuzvendra Chahal

Trent Boult has been at his consistent best and has done a lot of damage with the new ball. The Kiwi will hope the Guwahati surface can help him get some early wickets for his side. Avesh Khan has bowled with good pace and has also been lethal in the death overs. Yuzvendra Chahal too will want to make sure that he picks wickets and keeps the keeps-found form going.

Likely RR XI vs KKR

Jaiswal, T.Kohler-Cadmore, S. Samson, R Parag, D Jurel, S Dubey, R Powell, R Ashwin, A Khan, T Boult, Y Chahal
