Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Kolkata Knight Riders will play Rajasthan Royals in the 31st match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Eden Gardens and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 16th.

KKR have been outstanding in the tournament so far.  They have played five games, winning four and losing just one game. The wins have been very convincing too. The team has played aggressive cricket and steamrolled oppositions. They defeated LSG in the last game after they chased the target of 162 in 16th over, with eight wickets to spare.

Rajasthan Royals have also been brilliant, winning five and losing just one. They returned to winning ways after defeating PBKS by three wickets. The game against RR will be KKR’s biggest challenge. The Shreyas Iyer-led side has tried to be aggressive but dominating the class Royals bowling like they have done with other teams won’t be that easy.

KKR vs RR Match Toss Prediction

Eden Gardens is a venue where captains prefer to chase. It is a small ground thus defending is not the easiest task.

KKR vs RR Pitch Report

The wicket at the Eden Gardens has favoured the batters. The consistent pace and bounce have allowed the batters to play aggressive strokes at will. However, the wicket will get slower as the tournament progresses and spinners will come into play. A few odd balls have already started gripping and turning so batters need to be careful against spinners. 

Kolkata Weather Report

It will be a humid evening with temperature hovering around high 20s. The humidity will be 49 per cent and the wind speed will be 10 kmph.

KKR Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

KKR are unlikely to make any changes to the playing XI. They kept Rinku Singh out of the playing XI in last game as they opted to bowl first and could do the same if they bowl first again. If KKR are batting, Rinku Singh will come into the playing XI. 

KKR Key Players

  • Sunil Narine - The move to send Sunil Narine at the top has worked wonders for KKR. Narine has come in and decimated the bowlers with swashbuckling stroke play. Narine has scored 167 runs at a strike rate of over 180. Also, he is KKR’s best bowler as well.
  • Phil Salt - Phil Salt scored a brilliant 89 against Lucknow Super Giants. Salt has been very consistent in IPL 2024, scoring 191 runs in five games. He has also tried to fetch quick runs and put the teams under pressure, something he has been very successful at.
  • Mitchell Starc -  After an ordinary outing, Mitchell Starc seemed to have found his mojo back. Starc had a great game against LSG and picked three wickets for just 23 runs. The performance should give him great confidence.
  • Andre Russell -  Andre Russell is a match winner for KKR. Russell has been magnificent in whatever chances he has got so far, scoring 115 runs in three innings at a strike rate of 212. Russell has also chipped in with crucial wickets..
  • Vaibhav Arora - Vaibhav is bowling well this season and he has picked 6 wickets in 3 matches so far at an average of 14.83. We can expect more wickets from him on this Eden Gardens track and it helps the pacers with good bounce.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Harshit Rana, Suyash Sharma, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Manish Pandey, Ankul Roy

KKR have pre-decided their impact player. If they are batting first, Harshit Rana will be the impact player while if they bowl first, Rinku Singh will be the impact player.

KKR Team Form

KKR have been ruthless. They have played five matches, winning four and losing just one game against CSK in IPL 2024.

KKR Predicted Playing 11

Philip Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Rinku Singh, Vaibhav Arora, Varun Chakaravarthy

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Rajasthan Royals left out R Ashwin and Yashasvi Jaiswal from the playing XI in the previous game due to injury. Samson at the toss revealed that the injuries were not serious thus we expect them to return to the playing XI.

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson - Sanju Samson has been magnificent in the tournament. He has led from the front and scored crucial runs for the team in tough situations. Samson has scored 264 runs in six innings so far for RR.
  • Riyan Parag - Riyan Parag has been a pillar of RR batting this season. Every time RR has been in trouble, Parag has raised his hands and played a match winning knock. He has scored 284 runs in six matches and that too at a healthy strike rate.
  • Trent Boult -  Trent Boult with the new ball is as deadly as anything. He has been top notch upfront and at death. With six wickets to his name at a reasonable economy, Boult has been the cornerstone of RR’s impressive show with the ball.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal - Yuzvendra Chahal has been outstanding as ever in IPL 2024. He is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 11 wickets in six games. Every time RR needed a wicket, Samson has turned to Chahal and he has returned with a game changing spell.
  • Kuldeep Sen - Kuldeep Sen has been impressive so far. He has picked 4 wickets in 2 matches at a strike rate of 12.0. He did not play the last head to head against KKR in 2023 but we back him to pick wickets on this surface.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Rovman Powell, Tanush Kotian, Shubham Dubey, Abid Mushtaq, Navdeep Saini

If RR are chasing, Rovman Powell will be used as an impact player while Keshav Maharaj can come in if the team is bowling second.

RR Team Form

RR have been magnificent. They are placed at the top of the table with five wins in six games.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen, Avesh Khan

KKR vs RR Betting Odds

Rajasthan Royals are getting the favourites tag. RR’s bowling gives them a slight advantage over KKR in the coming game.

Who will win Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals T20 Match?

We suggest backing Rajasthan Royals to win. KKR have dominated teams by playing aggressive cricket, however, dominating RR bowling won’t be easy as the likes of Boult, Ashwin and Chahal have been magnificent. Boult can get early wickets and put KKR on backfoot and that will put a lot of pressure on the middle and lower middle order batters who are largely untested. 

KKR vs RR Top Team Batsmen

Sunil Narine, Phil Salt and Andre Rusell can be backed as top batters. Narine has taken everyone by surprise with his hitting abilities. If Narine plays a quick-fire 20-30, he can put KKR ahead early. Salt has been magnificent as well and scored 89 vs LSG in the last game. Russell has not got much chance to bat but in whatever games he has come out to bat, he has tormented the bowlers with a barrage of sixes. 

Sanju Samson, Riyan Parag and Yashasvi Jaiswal will be main batters. Samson and Parag have been the best performers with the bat for RR, with both scoring 250+ runs already in the tournament. Jaiswal has also shown signs of a return to form and played a couple of cameos in last two games. Even though he is yet to score a fifty, a big innings should not be far away.

KKR vs RR Top Team Bowlers

Sunil Narine, Mitchell Starc and Varun Chakravarthy can be backed as best bowlers for KKR. Narine might not take many wickets but he puts a lot of pressure by bowling cheap overs and forces batters to play false shots against other bowlers. Starc returned to form in the last game and bagged three wickets vs LSG. Chakravarthy can also be useful with his variations and can induce false shots.

Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult and Avesh Khan will be the main RR bowlers. Chahal is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament, with 11 wickets. Boult has been exceptional too, picking six wickets while Avesh has also complemented other bowlers well, with exceptional death over bowling.

🏆 KKR vs RR Prediction

Rajasthan Royals are clear favourites to win. Both teams have been magnificent but Royals’ bowling gives them an edge in the coming game. Boult is very capable of getting early wickets and if he can remove two or three early wickets, KKR’s middle order can be exposed. Shreyas Iyer has not been in great form while the likes of Rinku Singh and Andre Russell have not batted much. For RR, their batters have been in great form as well thus RR are favourites to win.
