KKR vs RR IPL 2024 Match: Top 3 Player Battles To Watch

1. Jos Buttler vs Mitchell Starc

 RR opener Jos Buttler looks to be in impressive form, especially after the match-winning century against royal challengers Bengaluru (RCB). Although he sat out the match against PBKS due to a minor injury, skipper sanju samson hinted at his return to the 11 against KKR in the post-match presentation. KKR spearhead Mitchell Starc struggled to find his best until the LSG vs KKR IPL 2024 match where he took three crucial wickets. Buttler’s encounter with Mitchell Starc, who is known for his potency with the new ball, promises an exciting battle in the KKR vs RR IPL 2024 clash.

2. sanju samson vs sunil Narine

RR captain sanju samson has been hitting runs for fun this season. With 264 runs under his belt at a strike rate of 155.29, Samson's contributions have been instrumental to rajasthan Royals’ success. However, his strike rate against sunil Narine is notably lower, setting the stage for an intriguing battle between the two. 

Narine holds a notable advantage over Samson, having dismissed him three times in the IPL. Moreover, Samson has managed to score only 66 runs off 82 deliveries against Narine, at a strike rate of 80.5.

3. sunil Narine vs Trent Boult

Sunil Narine's journey as an opening batter has been nothing short of exceptional. His ability to give his team the best possible start has been evident in KKR's last few matches. In the DC vs KKR game, he scored a 39-ball 85 including seven boundaries and as many sixers. RR will heavily rely on Trent Boult given his favorable track record against Narine. Despite Narine scoring 20 runs off 12 deliveries from the new zealand pacer in T20s, Boult has managed to dismiss Narine twice.
