IPL Fantasy 2019, Match 21, RR vs KKR: Who would be the X-Factor in today's game?
The Rajasthan Royals will play against the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2019 on April 7th at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Both the teams come off wins against RCB and appear to be high on confidence.
The Royals have had a break and a lot of time to recuperate and get their strategies right ahead of this game. Shreyas Gopal's great spell coupled with effective performances from their openers won them the game against RCB.
KKR must be pretty high on confidence having won 2 games from being on the brink of defeat and they will be further boosted by the form of their star player, Andre Russell. They will bank on their spinners to make the most of the conditions in Jaipur and get on top of the points table.
With many popular fantasy picks and a high-scoring clash on offer, this match will be a great one to watch and let's take a look at who the Fantasy X-Factor will be for this match.
Both the sides have quality all-rounders who are few of the best in the league and KKR's all-rounder, Andre Russell will be the Fantasy X-Factor for this match. While this might seem a bit too easy, it's true. Russell is in astounding form with the bat and he might pick up a couple of wickets with the ball considering that none of the regular pacers have done well.
The problem with RR's bowling is that they have only 2 front-line spinners and once they're done, their pace attack will be quite easy for Russell to handle. In fact, Jofra Archer is the only bowler who seems to strike the fear into the hearts of batsmen and even he has to be on his mark and it won't be easy due to the pressure and dew.
With plenty of points on the offing, don't let his great form lead you to think that a slump is on the way.
Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana and Sanju Samson too will be good fantasy picks for this match.
