Rajasthan Royals will face KXIP tomorrow in the 9th match of the IPL 2020. Sanju Samson will look forward to smash outstanding runs & create a record whereas the presence of Jos Buttler will make Rajasthan Royals more strong in front of KXIP.
Fans will surely get a chance to witness a bundle of sixes & fours in tomorrow’s match as its Steve Smith vs. KL Rahul. Both the captains & their squad will look forward to add more two points in the scoreboard by winning yesterday’s match. It will surely be a thrilling contest as both the teams will give each other head to head competition which will entertain the fans. Buttler who missed his first match due to Quarantine rules as he reached UAE separately with his family, will most probably open Royals batting innings along with Yashavi Jaiswal while Steve Smith will take David Miller’s position in the batting order. Tom Curran and Jofra Archer will again complete the four-player overseas quota.
“I am really excited to play my first game, it was great to be back in training with the boys, there’s a great vibe around the team so I’m really looking forward to taking the field,” Buttler said on the eve of the match.
“The atmosphere and energy around the squad is fantastic, obviously lots of confidence after that first game. The training has been very energetic, guys are lively and enjoying each other’s company. So expecting a really tough match against Kings XI,” Buttler said after a net session at Sharjah ground.
KL Rahul is seen as a future Indian Captain who scored an unbeatable 132 runs off 69 balls, bundled with seven sixes to lead KXIP to a massive 97 runs win over RCB. KL Rahul is one of the best hitters of the ball making the highest score by an Indian player in IPL history and he would like to continue in the same vein on a ground which has short boundaries on all sides.
“KL Rahul was in exceptional form the other night against RCB, so he will be a key wicket as always and I think we’ll see another potentially high-scoring game at Sharjah with small boundaries and the dew factor coming in,” the prolific keeper-batsman said.
“Great to get a win on the board, the team played fantastically well in the first game. It was an outstanding batting performance and a fantastic bowling performance in tough bowling conditions,” Buttler said, praising his colleagues.
