IPL 2018, the Second qualifier: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals

In the IPL 2018, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will be playing the second qualifier today. Earlier, there was a clash between the two teams in the league matches. KKR has won the victory in both the matches. Today’s match-winning team will go ahead for the qualifier 2 and the losing team will have to wait till the next IPL. To say that the KKR and Rajasthan Royals have to compete with the Eliminator of the tournament on the Eden Gardens ground, the winning team has to play the qualifier 2 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

In the beginning, Jos Buttler of the Royals team, who suffered a defeat, got a good return to the winning team. With the departure of Butler and Stokes, the team looks a little weak but it is a good thing for them to come in Rahul Tripathi’s form. Apart from this, Shreyas Gopal and Krishnappa Gautam are in good rhythm with Joefra Archer in bowling. More than batting, the Royals team looks in the bowling.

Talk about Kolkata Knight Riders, then Sunil Narine is performing the brilliant game with both bat and ball. Apart from them, Chris Lynn is also not behind his hand in batting. Dinesh Karthik is playing the role of match finisher with his skill. Robin Uthappa’s bat did not fire in the manner that he was known for. All bowlers including Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Andre Russell, famous Krishna in bowling are contributing useful contributions.
