Having recorded two wins apiece, both Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will be looking to get the third one in the bag when they clash in the crucial 19th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 7 at Abu Dhabi. Catch live updates of the KKR vs RR 19th match of IPL 2014 here
While Kolkata won the most the thrilling encounter of IPL 2014 against Royal Challengers Bangalore, their loss to Kings XI Punjab in their last outing will be hurting them. They had managed to restrict Punjab to a modest total, yet their batsmen could not overcome the challenge. They will face an uphill task against Rajasthan, who in their last match, bowled out the strong Royal Challengers Bangalore batting unit for just 70 on the board.
Rajasthan’s morale will be high after their thumping win over Bangalore, and they need to keep the momentum going. Kolkata captain, Gautam Gambhir will be desperate to find some form and get some runs under his belt this season after what has been the most disastrous start. He has managed one run from four matches so far.
Kolkata will be hoping their entire batting improves. Rajasthan too need to be more consistent in their performances. They have been a fluctuating unit so far.
