The Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023) match between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Thursday is crucial for both the teams’ hopes of making it to the playoffs. Both teams have 10-10 points in 11-11 matches. After losing this match, both the teams will reach 14 points even after winning the next two matches, which may not be enough to reach the playoffs. In this match, Rajasthan spinner Yuzvendra Chahal will have a chance to create history. He will become the highest wicket-taker in IPL as soon as he takes one wicket.
Yuzvendra Chahal equaled Dwayne Bravo by taking 4 wickets in the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). In the match against Kolkata, he will create history as soon as he takes a wicket. The Rajasthan team is set to field three spinners in this match. Apart from Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin and Adam Jampa have bowled brilliantly. Chahal is the highest wicket-taker from the franchise with 17 wickets. Whereas Ashwin has taken 14 wickets. Adam Zampa has taken 5 wickets in 4 matches.
Sanju will adopt this strategy against Andre Russell
Sanju Samson will have to use these three spinners cleverly. Leg-spinners have been very effective against Andre Russell this season. Leg-spinner has dismissed him 8 times. That means Sanju will definitely use Chahal and Jampa against this KKR stalwart. Russell played an excellent inning against Punjab Kings (PBKS). He had hit 42 runs off 23 balls.
Jason Roy in danger from Bolt
Trent Boult did not play in the last match. The Kiwi bowler has the knack of taking wickets in the very first over. If he plays, the same can happen against Kolkata. His record against Jason Roy is excellent. He has dismissed this England batsman twice for 34 off 25 balls in T20s.
