RR vs KKR, Match 30 Pitch Report:
The pitch is likely to offer the same amount of support to the batters as we have seen in the first few matches at this venue. Pacers are likely to find enough pace and bounce from the pitch. The team winning the toss might look to bowl. Anything over 185 runs would be a safe score for the team batting first.
