Samson & Lynn batting specials – Rajasthan vs Kolkata IPL odds & tips

Kolkata vs. Rajasthan IPL

Kolkata vs. Rajasthan IPLWednesday, April 18, 2018 – 8:00 pm IST – Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

The 15th game of 2018 Indian Premier League will see Rajasthan Royals take on Kolkata Knight Riders at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

After losing its first game, Rajasthan came back strongly to produce two wins in a row. Captain Ajinkya Rahane has led the side well in the games played so far in the competition. In their last outing, the Royals comfortably brushed aside Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Sunday.

The star of the show for the winning side was Sanju Samson, who played a breathtaking knock of 92 not out from 45 balls with the help of two fours and 10 sixes that saw Rajasthan amass 218 while batting first.

The innings took Samson’s runs tally in the tournament to 178 after three matches at a strike rate of 163.20. He was well-supported by England’s duo of Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, who scored 27 off 21 and 23 off 14 balls respectively.

Leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal produced another impressive performance for the winning side on the night. Not only did he dismiss Kohli and AB de Villiers in quick succession, he gave away just 22 runs in his four overs.

On the other hand, Kolkata have been inconsistent as a side and will be keen to turn their fortunes around. In their last match, Kolkata produced a disciplined performance to beat Delhi by 71 runs in the home fixture.

After being put into bat first, Kolkata managed to post 201 runs in its 20 overs. Left-handed batsman Nitish Rana finished with the top score of 59 from 35, including five fours and four sixes. Andre Russell once again put a solid show with the bat with unbeaten 41 off 12 balls with the help of six sixes.

Off-spinner Sunil Narine was the chief destroyer with the ball and finished with figures of 3 for 18 against Delhi. Kuldeep Yadav bowled well in the last game after struggling to find rhythm in the first couple of games.
