Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders are potentially a win away from cementing their place in the playoffs. Kolkata Knight Riders have turned things around drastically in the 2nd half and only lost 2 matches so far in the UAE leg. Despite dealing with the injuries of Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson, it has been their bowling that have been top-notch.

The mystery duo of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine in the middle overs has been the biggest headache for opponents. They block the flow of runs which puts pressure and throw their wickets away in search of runs. Their batting department has improved but is yet to play up to their potential. They will be in pole position for qualification if they manage to beat Rajasthan Royals in this contest.

  • Form Guide- W-L-W-L-W
  • Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson are likely to be available for this match.
  • Eoin Morgan’s average is just 11.1 this season.

Top Batsmen so far in IPL 2021 

  • Rahul Tripathi – 356 runs at  142.40 strike rate
  • Nitish Rana – 335 runs at 123.61 strike rate  
  • Shubhman Gill – 296 runs at 117.92 strike rate    

Top Bowlers so far in IPL 2021

  • Prasiddh Krishna – 12 wickets at 29.5 average 
  • Varun Chakravarthy – 15 wickets at 23.33 average 
  • Andre Russel – 11 wickets at 17 average

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals are virtually out of the race for qualification for playoffs. They have been super inconsistent and also had to deal with many injury blows. They were without the English trio of Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Archer but this couldn’t be an excuse as replacement players like Evin Lewis had performed well. 

Rajasthan chased 190 against Chennai Super Kings but couldn’t even score 100 runs against Mumbai Indians which is enough to show the inconsistent nature of this team. Indian bowlers have impressed but their spin department is very weak. They were banking on Shreyas Gopal and Tewatia but they have miserably failed even on such spin-friendly tracks of UAE.

  • Form Guide- L-W-L-L-L
  • Rajasthan Royals have the best run rate in powerplay in the UAE leg.
  • Evin Lewis has the best strike rate in powerplay this season.

Top Batsmen so far in IPL 2021 

  • Sanju Samson- 483 runs at 138.00 strike rate
  • Jaiswal– 249 runs at 150.90 strike rate  
  • David Miller- 124 runs at 109.73 strike rate    

Top Bowlers so far in IPL 2021

  • Chris Morris- 14 wickets at 24.85 average 
  • Mustafizur Rahman- 14 wickets at 28.92 average 
  • Chetan Sakariya- 13 wickets at 31.00 average

KKR vs RR– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Kolkata Knight Riders is expected to win the match against Rajasthan Royals 

KhelTalk experts feel that Kolkata Knight Riders will win against Rajasthan Royals in this encounter. Kolkata Knight Riders are on verge of qualifying for playoffs after two long years. They were nowhere near the qualification scenario after the first half but have drastically turned the tables.

Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson are likely to return for this must-win encounter which will be a huge boost. Kolkata Knight Riders have a balanced team for UAE conditions and are favorites for this match. Rajasthan Royals had another disappointing season and will look to spoil Kolkata’s party but we think Kolkata Knight Riders are likely to defeat Rajasthan Royals in this match.

Top Batsman from Rajasthan Royals – Sanju Samson(3.25 odds) 

Sanju Samson had a blistering start in both legs but failed to maximize his early advantages. He has scored 483 runs this season and once was even the biggest contender for orange cap. He has failed with the bat in recent matches and again threw his wicket by playing rash shots. Sanju is a talented lad and could be the biggest party spoiler for Kolkata Knight Riders in this match. He has all skills under his belt to destroy any opposition and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Rajasthan Royals.

Top Batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders – Nitish Rana(4.75 odds)

Nitish Rana has been the crisis man for Kolkata Knight Riders this season. He has played as opener, in middle overs, and even finished the last game. Rana has scored 335 runs this season and recently has looked ultra solid. His game against spinners is really aggressive and he can exploit Sharjah’s short boundaries to perfection as he did against Delhi Capitals. Rana is a good player of spin and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders.

Top Bowler from Rajasthan Royals– Chetan Sakariya (3.75 odds)

Chetan Sakariya has impressed everyone with his bowling this season. He has picked 13 wickets and is a genuine swing bowler in the powerplay. Chetan bowled a brilliant maiden over in the last match and even took the priceless wicket of Rohit Sharma on the same Sharjah wicket. He is not a one-dimensional bowler and has many variations in his armory. Chetan can be a very dangerous bowler on this surface and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best bowler from Rajasthan Royals.

Top Bowler from Kolkata Knight Riders– Varun Chakravarthy (3.75 odds) 

Varun Chakravarthy has proved his metal this season and gave answers to pundits who labeled him as a one-season wonder. He has picked 15 wickets this season and this must-win match is tailor-made for him to become the hero of the team. No batsman has succeeded in reading him which gives him an extra edge. Sharjah is a very slow pitch and Varun can exploit its slow nature to perfection. He can give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best bowler from Rajasthan Royals.
