Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will play the 47th match of IPL 2022 on Monday. Both the teams will meet for the second time in this edition of the league. In the first game, the Royals defeated KKR by 7 runs after scoring 217 runs in 20 overs. Yuzvendra Chahal picked a five-wicket haul in this match which included a hat-trick. Orange Cap holder Jos Buttler scored his second century.
KKR currently have won 3 out of 9 matches and are placed in the 8th position in the points table. They have lost the last 5 matches and would be eager to make a comeback. Royals, on the other hand, suffered their third loss of the season against Mumbai Indians in the previous match. They are currently placed in the 3rd position in the points tally with 6 wins in 9 matches. A win in this match will help RR move back to second place.
Here are 3 players you can avoid in your fantasy teams for the KKR vs RR game:
1. Aaron Finch
Aaron Finch played the third match of the season against Delhi Capitals on Thursday and was dismissed for just 3 runs. Finch made a comeback to the playing 11 after missing the match against Gujarat Titans which KKR lost by 8 runs. KKR have not been able to figure out the right opening combination and have tried a few players in this position. In this game, they might want to include Pat Cummins in the 11, and if that happens Finch will have to sit out. Hence, you can avoid Finch in your fantasy team for this match.
2. Venkatesh Iyer
Venkatesh Iyer made a half-century against Mumbai Indians in KKR’s fourth match and that was the only time he managed to score more than 20 runs this season. Before coming into the IPL, Iyer played some decent knocks for India but has failed to replicate the same. You can avoid him in your fantasy team for this match.
3. Daryl Mitchell
Daryl Mitchell made his IPL debut against RCB and made 16 runs while coming in to bat at number 5. In the last game against MI, he batted in the number fourth position and this change didn’t work as he was dismissed for 17 runs. You can avoid Mitchell and pick some other in-form players in your fantasy team.
