Rajasthan and Kolkata lock horns in match 30 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. The Jaipur-based franchise lost to Gujarat by 37 runs on Thursday. Kolkata, too, suffered a defeat in their previous match after Hyderabad crushed them by seven wickets at Brabourne Stadium.
We look at five First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Rajasthan-Kolkata match.
J Buttler vs A Russell
Jos Buttler squares off against Andre Russell in a marquee Match-Up. The Englishman is the current Orange Cap holder, while the West Indian has scored 179 runs and taken five wickets so far. Buttler has won most of his Match-Ups this season, but Russell has the upper hand over the Rajasthan wicket-keeper batter on Monday.
S Iyer vs S Hetmyer
Apart from a half-century against Delhi, Shreyas Iyer hasn't made an impact with the bat in the 15th edition. On the other hand, Shimron Hetmyer has scored 197 runs at a strike rate of 177.47. Shreyas could emerge the winner in this Match-Up despite Hetmyer's consistent performances this season.
A Finch vs V Iyer
Both Aaron Finch and Venkatesh Iyer scored just 13 runs between them in Kolkata's previous outing. Venkatesh will be feeling the heat after collecting just 103 runs in six innings. Finch, too, has to get runs under his belt. The Kolkata all-rounder has the edge over the Aussie in this Match-Up.
Y Chahal vs P Cummins
Yuzvendra Chahal is the favorite to win the Match-Up against Pat Cummins. The leg-spinner has bagged 50+ fantasy points in four of the five matches. Meanwhile, Kolkata pacer Cummins, who has hit a 14-ball half-century against Mumbai, has picked up three wickets in as many matches at an economy rate of 11.83.
Did You Know? Y Chahal has taken 137 fantasy points in three matches against Kolkata last season
S Samson vs U Yadav
Sanju Samson will be desperate for runs after scoring just 32 runs in the last three outings. He has hit only one half-century in the tournament so far. Kolkata pacer Umesh Yadav has picked up just two wickets since the four-wicket haul against Punjab. Samson is likely to get the better of Umesh at Brabourne Stadium.
