- 19:07 (IST)KKR vs RR, Live Score: Here's what Nitish Rana said at the toss"I think we're getting the type of pitches we want. We will have to play good cricket, take one game at a time and earn 2 points. One change for us - Anukul Roy replaces Vaibhav Arora. Looks like the pitch is dry, they haven't watered a lot, so we are playing that extra spinner and add some depth to the batting."
- 19:04 (IST)KKR vs RR, Live Score: Here's what Sanju Samson said at the toss"We will bowl here first. Long tournament, need to change according to the strength and weaknesses. Couple of changes for us - Boult replaces Kuldeip Yadav, KM Asif replaced Murugan Ashwin. Root will bat at 4. It's a long tournament, we have had some tough games for the bowlers, the morale of the team is high, not easy to forget close losses, but we need to move on."
- 18:44 (IST)KKR vs RR, Live Score: Pitch report'One of the square boundaries is very short at 58m while the other end is 71m long. The straight boundary is at 73m. Lots of runs on this pitch, this is the same pitch that was used for the last game, but there was a degree of turn for the KKR spinners, far more than what it was in previous matches. You've got to hit the right lengths as a spinner. There'll be runs on this surface, the average score on this pitch is 205, but spinners from both teams will play a part,' reckons Rohan Gavaskar, in his pitch report
- 17:54 (IST)KKR vs RR, Live Score: Weak pace attack of KKRWith the KKR team management not bowling World Test Championship final-bound Shardul Thakur against PBKS, the pace department looked woefully short on experience. Had it not been for the heroics of Rinku Singh and Andre Russell, the seam duo of Vaibhav Arora and Harshit Rana had almost lost the match after leaking 36 runs in the last two overs against PBKS.
- 17:47 (IST)KKR vs RR, Live Score: Varun Chakravarthy key for KKRIn terms of key battles and team strategies, KKR would once again rely on Varun Chakravarthy, who has been the central character in both their previous wins. Having defended nine runs in the last over against SRH, Chakravarthy's 3/26 made all the difference against Punjab Kings. At a time their seasoned slow bowler Sunil Narine is finding it difficult to get wickets, Chakravarthy has emerged as KKR's spin spearhead with 17 wickets so far this season.
