High-flying Rajasthan Royals will be looking to become the first team this season to register three wins when they take on a spirited Kolkata Knight Riders in the twelfth match of IPL 2020. The teams are taking on each other after winning their previous games.
While Rajasthan Royals chased a record 223 against Kings XI Punjab in their last outing, Kolkata Knight Riders made light work of Sunrisers Hyderabad. And while one can expect a cracking contest between the two in-form sides, not many would deny that they might face some stiff challenge in this match.
The teams have struggled to assess conditions in IPL 2020 so far and it won’t be a surprise if Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders face the same situation today. Both the teams are playing in Dubai for the first time and the condition at the venue has been quite challenging at this venue.
