LAKR vs SOR Team Previews

Los Angeles Knight Riders

The Los Angeles Knight Riders team has a lot of thinking to do after this season gets done. They have several stars such as Rilee Rossouw, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, and Jason Roy in their ranks. With a team like that they should have done a much better job. The Knight Riders team is coming from a 6-wicket loss against Washington Freedom in a game played at Church Street Park. The Los Angeles Knight Riders posted a score of 175 runs for the loss of 7 wickets after they were asked to bat first thanks to a blistering 70 from 37 balls by Andre Russell.

Andre Russell provided a swashbuckling batting performance that breathed life back into the Knight Riders' innings that gave a fighting chance to his team. However, Washington Freedom made light work of this chase and sealed a victory with 11 balls to spare. The Knight Riders team has themselves to blame. He has been the top run-getter for the team with 169 runs from 4 games at a strike rate of 164. However, this team has been persistent about using Russell at the no 6 position rather than using him in some positions above where he will be able to make a larger impact.

Another player that found some form in that last contest was Rilee Rossouw. He scored 41 runs from 30 balls. Rossouw together with Jason Roy will be crucial for the chances of his team. If these batters can lay a great foundation for batters such as Russell, the Knight Riders team will have a good chance of winning this game. As far as the bowling department is concerned, the leg spinner Adam Zampa has picked up 7 wickets in the competition from 4 games at an economy rate of 8.73. The speedster Ali Khan has picked up four scalps but has an economy rate of 11.25.

This together with the efforts of de Kock ensured a smooth chase.

Shimron Hetmyer scored 49 runs from 2 games with a strike rate of 120.40. He missed the last match however; he is expected to get back in the team for this game.
