Betting Tips
  • Opener Shubman Gill hit 57 from 51 balls in Sunday’s win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. He is our choice for KKR’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Tim Southee impressed with 2-26 on Sunday and is well worth backing as KKR’s top wicket taker against Rajasthan Royals.
  • Rajasthan Royals posted only 90-9 on Tuesday in spite of opener Evin Lewis hitting 24 from 19 balls. The West Indian is a strong pick for Rajasthan’s leading run scorer against KKR. Chetan Sakariya produced a rollercoaster of a performance from 3 overs against Mumbai Indians. He bowled a maiden over and took the wicket of Rohit Sharma but still went for 36 runs from 3 overs. We are backing him to be Rajasthan’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • With KKR needing to avoid defeat, it could well be that Shubman Gill’s cautious approach at the top of the order is just the tonic. Gill is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award.

KKR vs RR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

Match 54 of the Indian Premier League sees Kolkata Knight Riders take on Rajasthan Royals at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah in Thursday’s late game. A win for KKR will secure their place in the play-offs whereas a win for Rajasthan Royals will open the door for other teams to potentially snatch 4th place. Read on as we preview this game. The match in Sharjah begins at 19:30 local time.

It is a simple equation for Kolkata Knight Riders who know that a win in this game will make it virtually impossible for Mumbai Indians to overhaul their net-run-rate. They have won two of their last three games in the 2021 IPL.

Rajasthan Royals made life very difficult for themselves by posting only 90-9 against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday. As a result, they must win this game by a large margin to give themselves any chance of progression.

KKR vs RR Match Toss Prediction

Rajasthan Royals need a big net-run-rate swing so we expect them to bowl first and then give themselves the chance to chase a target in the shortest possible time. Eoin Morgan is always comfortable fielding first.

KKR vs RR Match Pitch Report

Making a half-century has proved to be very difficult for even some of the most form batsmen in the tournament in Sharjah. Expect a tacky pitch.

KKR vs RR Prediction

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

After a relatively easy win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday, KKR must now keep their heads and avoid any batting collapses or nightmare bowling spells in this game. For that reason, we expect Eoin Morgan to pack his team full of experienced players for this match.

KKR Key Players

  • Rahul Tripathi - The top order batter is KKR’s leading run scorer in the tournament with 356 runs which includes 2 half-centuries. 
  • Shubman Gill - The young Indian opener hit his first 50 of this year’s competition on Sunday. He could be coming into form at just the right time.
  • Tim Southee - the New Zealand bowling all-rounder took 2 key wickets against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He is also capable of big hitting down the order if required.

KKR Team Form

With three wins from their last five games, KKR are used to putting victories on the board. However, they have not won consecutive matches since September.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Ventakesh Iyer, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy, Shivam Mavi

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

It has been an up and down IPL 2021 for Rajasthan Royals and unless they can pull off a big win in this match and other results go in their favour, they will be eliminated from the tournament. They have no choice but to come out and play a very attacking brand of cricket in this match.

RR Key Players

  • Evin Lewis - The West Indian opener has got his side off to a good start in every game bar one in the UAE. He hit a half-century against RCB.
  • Sanju Samson - With 483 runs in the tournament, the wicket-keeper captain has had an exceptional individual 2021 IPL.
  • Chetan Sakariya - The left-arm pace bowler made his international debut in July of this year. He has 13 wickets across the competition.

RR Team Form

Sanju Samson’s side have won only two games since the tournament restarted in the UAE. It would be a huge achievement to qualify for the play-offs from here.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Shivam Dube, Glenn Phillips, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Kuldip Yadav, Shreyas Gopal, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman
