IPL 2024, Match 70, RR vs KKR: Barsapara Cricket Stadium Pitch Report and IPL Stats

Rajasthan Royals find themselves in a precarious position with four consecutive defeats despite already securing a Playoff berth. The absence of Jos Buttler has left a significant void, evident in their recent loss against Punjab Kings where Tom Kohler-Cadmore struggled to fill in. However, Shane Bond, the team’s bowling coach, remains optimistic, emphasizing RR’s resilience and their capability to bounce back with just one strong performance. Facing Kolkata Knight Riders, who have been in good form lately, presents a tough challenge, but it could be the catalyst RR needs to regain momentum heading into the playoffs, while KKR aims to address their previous loss to RR and continue their winning streak.

IPL 2024, RR vs KKR: Barsapara Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

Contrary to expectations and local trends, the pitch in the last match at this venue facilitated low scores. The black-soil surface was low and skiddy, posing challenges for batsmen to generate elevation. Leading up to this match, the weather in Guwahati has been wet, possibly affecting the upcoming pitch conditions. Although a fresh pitch is anticipated, it might exhibit similar characteristics. Match day forecasts predict scattered thunderstorms, but as with all weather predictions, they are subject to change.
