Preview for RR vs KKR MyTeam11 contest
Rajasthan Royals have been an exciting bunch to watch in action simply because of their destructive batting force led by the great Steve Smith and Sanju Samson. They have won both their matches thus far – the last one being the highest run chase in IPL history.
Although KKR managed to win their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad convincingly, they’ve looked far from their best so far. Pat Cummins getting back at his best form will be a major relief for the franchise.

Ben Stokes continues to be an absentee for Rajasthan in the tournament so far. Kolkata Knight Riders can avail the services of the full squad.
