Rajasthan Royals were no match to Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last outing as the latter went on to win the match by ten wickets. However, the team did have a few positive to take from that game, one was the way their youngsters batted. Shivam Dube and Riyan Parag added 60-plus runs, rescued the team and then Rahul Tewatia’s good cameo took them to 177. Although it wasn’t enough, the team will be glad to see the youngsters standing up when needed.

Kolkata Knight Riders had a similar situation in the last match where their bowlers went for plenty and their top-order failed. However, the match witnessed the big man Andre Russell get back to his form along with Dinesh Karthik scoring a quick cameo. Most importantly, Pat Cummins showed that he is more than a capable batter when he almost took the team home. It was a heartbreaking finish but certainly full mark for his efforts.

Talking about this contest, this will be the 24th match between these two teams and so far Kolkata leads their head to head with 12 wins to Rajasthan’s 10.

RR vs KKR Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain

All a player like Andre Russell needs is a couple of good deliveries to get back to form. In the last match, he was just too good that one can expect him to repeat it in this contest as well. In the last match, he gave Kolkata Knight Riders a big hope and began the counter-attack after losing early wickets. He had 54 runs and also had a wicket to his name. 

Rajasthan Royals depends a lot on the opening partnership here, especially, on Jos Buttler. The England wicket-keeper did have his moments but is highly inconsistent so far. Still, one can back him here because of his good record against Kolkata. He so far has
