We have the Match Prediction that can help you in placing the right bets. We will discuss current form, head to head, stats, and players to watch out for in the upcoming match.
Current form – KKR – Last four matches – W L L L
KKR were let down by their top-order in the previous match against CSK. The Eoin Morgan-led team will need to come up with consistent performances and they will look to turn the tables. Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan’s form will be a cause of concern for KKR and they will aim to bounce back stronger.
RR – Last four matches – L W L L
Rajasthan Royals also have a problem of plenty. RR’s batting unit has failed to get going and it is crucial for them that players like Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson and David Miller deliver big for them. Moreover, RR lack experience in their bowling line-up and they will need to come up with a collective effort.
Head to Head:
Overall matches – 23, Won by KKR – 12, Won by RR – 10, Abandoned – 1.
Players to look out for: KKR will want their big players like Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan to come to the party. Karthik, Russell and Cummins had done well in the previous match.
Sanju Samson, David Miller, Jos Buttler, and Chris Morris will hold the key for RR.
Match Prediction – Kolkata Knight Riders will be slightly favourites against Rajasthan Royals on the basis of team’s balance.
