Rajasthan Royals will be up against Kolkata Knight Riders in the last game of the group stage for both the teams. Rajasthan, after blowing hot and cold all season, seem to have found their mojo in the last two games, but it seems to have come slightly late. In the last 2 games, Ben Stokes justified his promotion at the top of the order and Sanju Samson seemed to have found his initial form.

They seem to be a much more settled batting unit, and have chased down 180+ targets in consecutive games. This is a direct knockout for them and will be hoping the form gained in the last two games helps get them over the line in this game too.

Like RR, this is a knockout game for KKR also. But they have a much worse NRR and will have to play out of their skins to come even close to qualifying for the playoffs. Constant shuffling of playing XI and a spate of injuries hasn’t helped their cause but KKR has managed to cling on. They will need their top order to survive Archer’s initial burst and then can look to pile up a huge score.

They will need all the bowlers to come to the party as well. The loss in the last match against CSK will hurt them sorely, but they have to put that behind them and give their best on the park.

For you to be able to give your best, here are 3 players you can opt as multipliers for your Dream11 team for KKR vs RR game:

1. Ben Stokes (10 credits)

Ben Stokes has finally come into his own at the fag end of the IPL. While it seemed Stokes wasn’t comfortable opening the innings in the initial few games, he followed up his 100 against MI with a quickfire 50 against KXIP in the previous game. His batting form has also facilitated in helping him gain confidence while bowling. With KKR possessing 3 left handed batsmen in their top 6, RR’s two leg spinners may not be as useful, and like we saw in the game against KXIP, Stokes could end up bowling his full quota.

2.Jofra Archer (10 credits)

Jofra Archer has easily been one of the top bowlers of tournament. He has picked up 19 wickets already, and most of those have been upfront, in the powerplay. With KKR opting for an inexperienced top order, Archer will come into play very early. Add to that, KKR’s batting has shown signs of brittleness all through the tournament. Archer could be the perfect man to rip through their out of form batting line up.

3.Eoin Morgan (9 credits)

It is remarkable that Eoin Morgan has got 350 runs this season without scoring a half century. He would want to cap of the group stages with one fifty for sure. Morgan has looked good all season but that one big score has alluded him. With Rajasthan having Rahul Tewatia and Shreyas Gopal as two leggies in their line-up, Morgan could be up for a big one. If KKR’s skipper finally decides to bat up the order, there is a high possibility he will go after the leg spinners and other inexperienced bowlers of RR.
