The second weekend of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will come to an end with Rajasthan Royals (RR) taking on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on April 7 (Sunday). The matches between both these sides have always kept the fans on their feet, and it will be no different in the upcoming encounter.

While Rajasthan have finally found some feet in the ongoing tournament, Kolkata are flying colours with Andre Russell in mindboggling form. He recently powered Kolkata to a win over Royal Challengers Bangalore chasing 205 runs, hitting 75 runs in the last four overs. Dinesh Karthik & Co will look to play around the big Jamaican and provide him support as Russell continues to unleash his power-hitting.

On the other hand, Rajasthan will have to find a way to stop Andre Russell. They also have had their issues with the bowling and will aim to solve those problems going forward. Besides, they also have the firepower in their batting to chase down big targets.

Date and Venue: April 7 (Sunday) at 8:00 PM IST, Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Rajasthan.

In their last three meetings, KKR won all those matches.

Weather Forecast

It will be hot in Jaipur with the temperature hovering around 35 degrees Celsius. Although it will come down as the game progresses, it will not go down the 30’s mark. The humidity level will be around 25 percent; thus it is not likely to take a toll on the players.

Moreover, there are no chances of rain much to the delight of the Rajasthan Royals fans. The amount of dew will also be relatively less so the toss won’t play a crucial factor.

Score expectations

The highest score at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in the history of IPL is 197 for five scored by Rajasthan Royals against Delhi Capitals (previously Delhi Daredevil) in 2012. On the other hand, the lowest score ever registered in this ground in IPL is 92 runs by Mumbai Indians in 2013.

However, this ground is a high-scoring one with 170 a par score. Both teams boast some power hitters in their line, and one can expect a flurry of boundaries and sixes during Sunday’s second encounter.

Match Prediction

History has witnessed some nail-biting encounters when both sides have clashed against each other. One such game is on the cards when these two teams will meet again on Sunday at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

Going by the record books, Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders have clashed against each other 18 times in the IPL. The result lies at even-steven with both sides winning nine games each. However, the winning stakes are high for Rajasthan at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium as they lead Kolkata by 3-2.

But Sunday’s clash will be a different ball game with Kolkata Knight Riders in terrific form. Although Rajasthan Royals have returned to winning ways, but the current Kolkata team with in-form Ander Russell looks invincible.
