You can bet on Steve Smith as both captain and vice-captain roles. Setting a tone with 69 off 47 balls in the opening game, the RR captain announced why he is one of the most important players in the team.

RR vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction: Who will win the match:
Rajasthan being a better team on papers with the likes of Jos Buttler, Steven Smith, and David Miller, but where actually Rajasthan stands ahead of Kings is their bowling line up. They have better options when compared with Kings XI Punjab. Without a doubt, KL Rahul looks in incredible form, but there are still clouds revolving over Glenn Maxwell, whether he will perform or not. Also, Rajasthan has played at this venue, so they would have the advantage of knowing the conditions much better than Kings. So, we clearly bet on Rajasthan Royal to win this encounter.
