That will be it from our side today. But do follow every ball LIVE with our blog at Cricket Next. Goodbye!

17:52 (IST)

Not much time left for the first ball, we are expecting a tough battle on our hands! RR have an array of stroke makers. Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, add Rahul Tewatia to the list. While KKR have some outstanding fast bowlers: Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti. It will primarily be RR batting vs KKR bowling for sure.

17:45 (IST)

This video is pure gold for the upcoming fast bowlers.

17:28 (IST)

Shubman Gill has been a revelation at the top of the order, hasn't he? Played superbly against SRH to anchor the chase. Scored 70 off 62 balls. Took his time and then capitalised on a good start.

17:10 (IST)

So, can Rajasthan make it three in three? Earlier DC lost to SRH and fluffed an opportunity to win three games in a row.

16:35 (IST)

Meanwhile Mumbai Indians will have 'specific plans' for KXIP skipper KL Rahul when they take on Punjab in IPL 2020. Mumbai know any let up on their part can turn nasty. "We will have specific ideas about how we can get him out. In the end, we can't allow him (Rahul) to score in the areas he is very, very strong," team bowling coach Shane Bond said.

An inside look from the KKR camp.

15:40 (IST)

When the last time these two sides met at UAE, Royals beat Knight Riders just on boundary count after the match went into a super over and got tied. Earlier in 2009, both the teams had forced a game into a super-over where Royals again emerged victorious.

15:31 (IST)

Meanwhile MS Dhoni is set to produce a mythological sci-fi thriller. Sakshi Dhoni, Managing Director, Dhoni Entertainment said that it will be a web series.

15:01 (IST)

A lot is expected from Sunil Narine--the batsman. Scored a duck against SRH, will his batting skills come handy tonight?--Only time will tell.

14:27 (IST)

Looks like KKR are banking on extreme pace as they take on Rajasthan Royals. Pat Cummins will head this bowling unit and he will have the likes of Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti to shoulder the burden.

14:16 (IST)

Kamlesh Nagarkoti looks in supreme touch. Can he turn the heat on RR?

14:09 (IST)

Surely.

13:59 (IST)

Shreyas Gopal or Sunil Narine. Who will win the spin battle?

13:38 (IST)

It's really interesting that in 21 games played so far, KKR and RR have won 10 games apiece. Inseparable!

13:23 (IST)

We believe Nitish Rana can be the x-factor tonight. Had starts in both the games so far. While he scored 26 against Mumbai in tournament opener, he accounted for 24 against SRH. KKR must be really looking forward to something big from this Delhi lad.

13:15 (IST)

Sharjah was a small ground. In Dubai, RR and Sanju Samson will have their own set of issues to deal with. In last four games, nobody has won chasing on this ground.

12:59 (IST)

Do you Know: Sanju Samson was part of Pune Warriors India squad back in 2012.

12:43 (IST)

Speaking about Sanju Samson, today's report in Indian Express claims how the Kerala cricketer reached out to professionals to sort out his diet. He was given lots of carbs and proteins. Which showed in last two RR games in Sharjah. Sanju accounted for 74 against CSK and 85 against KXIP.

12:32 (IST)

Seems like RCB had quite a night after their narrow win over Mumbai. You deserved it guys.

12:23 (IST)

Meanwhile a lot was expected from senior pro Robin Uthappa. Robbie connected just once and with the run rate increasing all the time, he perished. There is only one position for Robbie: Promote him to the top.

12:15 (IST)

Remember FIVE sixes that Tewatia smashed off Sheldon Cottrell. A total of 30 runs were plundered in Sharjah which changed the course of the game. 

12:05 (IST)

Just in case you were wondering what Tewatia is upto ahead of KKR clash. Here it is.

12:00 (IST)

Not to mention this but half of Haryana will be looking out for this guy: Rahul Tewatia, what a sensation. One, just one over it takes to change someone's life!

11:46 (IST)

"I don't think the conditions were that different. The grounds are bigger, there are bigger square boundaries here. (But) At the end of the day, we were just outplayed by Sunrisers Hyderabad," Ponting said at the post-match press conference after DC's loss to SRH

PREVIEW:

Rajasthan Royals have displayed top form in the ongoing IPL 2020 and have won both their matches so far. Next up against them on Wednesday, will be Dinesh Karthik’s Kolkata Knight Riders who are coming fresh from a victory, and would like to keep up the winning momentum.

Rajasthan Royals

In the two matches Rajasthan has played so far, their batting has looked impeccable, with the presence of Sanju Samson & Steve Smith. While these two have formed the core of the batting, other players have chipped in with healthy contributions in the need of the hour — be it Rahul Tewatia or Jofra Archer. While the batting seems to be sorted for the moment, they are greatly missing the presence of Ben Stokes, who provides excellent stability to the team. He would have bolstered the bowling, which is currently under the pump.

Though Archer is their spearhead, he too was taken to the cleaners in the match against Kings XI Punjab. Tom Curran and Jaydev Undakat don’t seem to be adding much value to the bowling unit, and Ankit Rajpoot will have to come up with the goods against KKR. As far as spin is concerned, Shreyas Gopal hasn’t come up a with a strong performance yet, and Tewatia though picks up wickets, is expensive. So Smith will have to come up with a strong playing XI against KKR.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Even though KKR won their last match against SRH — largely due to the efforts of Shubman Gill, their batting has been far from impressive. All their other main batsmen — Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Eoin Morgan, Sunil Narine, haven’t performed well at all. If they collectively fail to perform, they might just lose the match against Rajasthan.

The bowlers on the other hand have done decently well. Narine and Russell have been economical and have picked up wickets too. Pat Cummins was excellent in the match against SRH. But it will be their batting that will have to win the game for them.
