RR vs KKR Predicted Playing 11 - IPL 2022 Match 30

Rajasthan Royals have had a decent tournament so far with three wins in five games. They lost their last game to Gujarat Titans and will be keen to get back to winning ways. They are currently placed fourth on the points table. Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders have played six games, winning three and losing as many.

Rajasthan Royals

Team News

Trent Boult missed out in the last game due to injury. The exact nature or extent of his injury is not confirmed. His participation in the coming game is doubtful.

Top Order

Jos Buttler and Devdutt Padikkal will open the innings. Buttler has been in stellar form this season. RR, however, will need runs from Padikkal. Sanju Samson will follow the openers. Samson has also looked decent in the tournament so far.

Middle Order

There is plenty of firepower in RR's middle order with players like Shimron Hetmyer, Rassie Van der Dussen and Riyan Parag. All are capable to play big shots and end the innings on a high.


James Neesham and R Ashwin will be the all-rounders. Ashwin will be more needed with the ball, while Neesham will be responsible for hitting some lusty blows towards the end.


In the absence of Boult, Kuldeep Sen and Prasidh Krishna will take care of the pace bowling. However, Yuzvendra Chahal will be the main man with the ball.

Key batters

  • Jos Buttler - Buttler has been on fire in the tournament. He is the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 272 runs, including a hundred.
  • Sanju Samson - The skipper has blown hot and cold but he is a dangerous player and has 3 hundreds in the IPL.
  • Rassie Van der Dussen - Van der Dussen has not got enough opportunities to showcase his talent in IPL. However, he has done remarkably well for South Africa and will be a player to watch out for in the season.
Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Jos Buttler 70 2240 37.33 150.34 13/2
Sanju Samson 126 3185 28.95 134.67 16/3
Rassie van der Dussen 2 10 5.0 71.43 0/0

Key Bowlers

  • Yuzvendra Chahal - Chahal has been sensational with the ball and is the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 12 wickets.
  • R Ashwin - The spinners in the middle overs will be crucial for RR. Along with Chahal, Ashwin will also be a big threat with the ball.
  • Prasidh Krishna - Krishna can be expensive at times but he is a genuine wicket-taker. RR won't mind him going for a few but giving early breakthroughs.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Team News

KKR looks a well-settled unit and they won't be keen on making too many changes in the team.

Top Order

Aaron Finch and Venkatesh Iyer will open the innings, followed by Shreyas Iyer. All three batters need to ensure that KKR gets to a solid start. The players have not lived up to the expectations so far.

Middle Order

Nitish Rana and Sheldon Jackson will be the willow wielders in the middle order. Rana scored a 50 in the last game and KKR needs him to continue his form. Jackson also needs to contribute as a batter.


KKR have a plethora of dangerous all-rounders like Andre Russell, Sunil Narine and Pat Cummins. All can hit the ball a long way but can be inconsistent at times. Cummins and Narine will be crucial will the ball as well.


Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy and Aman Khan will be the three specialist bowlers. Umesh has been top class in the tournament, but Varun has been ordinary. He needs to find his form.

Key Batter

  • Shreyas Iyer - The skipper is yet to make an impact but he is the best batter of the side and needs to take the responsibility of taking the team to a decent total.
  • Aaron Finch - Finch played some good knocks in the Pakistan series. He'd been keen to make the most of this opportunity as a few failures can end his IPL campaign.
  • Andre Russell - The man can change the game on his head and KKR will be expecting some fireworks from him in the next game.
Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Shreyas Iyer 93 2526 31.57 124.8 17/0
Nitish Rana 83 1943 27.37 132.99 14/0
Venkatesh Iyer 16 473 33.79 122.22 5/0

Key Bowlers

  • Sunil Narine - Narine is not the same bowler he used to be a few years ago. However, he is still a tough bowler to face, even for the best batters.
  • Umesh Yadav - Yadav has been sensational so far, picking up wickets upfront with the new ball. Once again, KKR will be expecting him to give early breakthroughs.
  • Pat Cummins - Cummins has looked ordinary so far in the tournament but he is a match-winner with the ball and will be keen to do well in the next game
Bowlers Matches Wickets Average Economy Best Figures
Sunil Narine 140 147 24.68 6.67 5-19
Umesh Yadav 127 129 29.01 8.42 4-23
