Betting Tips
  • Jos Buttler has scored 272 runs so far this season and is the leading run scorer in the tournament. He is our tip for Rajasthan Royals’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, no bowler has taken more wickets than Yuzvendra Chahal. We expect to see the spinner as Rajasthan Royals’ top wicket taker against KKR.
  • Shreyas Iyer has scored 82 runs across his last two innings and is a strong choice for KKR’s highest run scorer against Rajasthan Royals. Umesh Yadav has picked up 10 wickets in the tournament so far and we are backing him to be KKR’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • No player has hit more sixes than Jos Buttler as yet in the 2022 IPL. He is our prediction for the player to strike the most sixes in this fixture.

RR vs KKR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2022

Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders meet in Match 30 of the 2022 Indian Premier League on Monday evening at the Brabourne Stadium. Rajasthan Royals have six points from five games. KKR have played one game more but also have six points on the board. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game begins in Mumbai at 19:30 local time.

Rajasthan Royals have stumbled a little in recent games but still have the leading run scorer and wicket taker in their ranks. If either Buttler or Chahal puts in another match winning performance then they can expect to win this match.

KKR won three of their first four games of this season but have found the going a bit harder over the last two matches. They will need a big turnaround to be on the winning side in this game.

RR vs KKR Match Toss Prediction

Both of Saturday’s games, including one at the Brabourne Stadium, were won by the team batting first. However, no skipper has chosen to bat first in this tournament and we expect both captains to insert the opposition ahead of this match.

RR vs KKR Match Pitch Report

Spinners had the most joy on this pitch last Sunday but it was the pacemen who picked up the most wickets on Friday and Saturday. We expect to see a quick surface with a par score around 185.

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

After beating Lucknow Super Giants by 3 runs last Sunday, Rajasthan Royals were forced into one change ahead of their defeat to Gujarat Titans on Thursday. New Zealand left-arm paceman Trent Boult missed out with a slight niggle and was replaced by his compatriot Jimmy Neesham. We expect to see Boult back for this match.

RR Key Players 

  • Jos Buttler- the English opener hit his third score of over 50 in the defeat to Gujarat Titans. His knock of 54 included 8 fours and 3 sixes.
  • Sanju Samson- the captain struck 85 runs from his first two innings of the season but has managed only 32 from his last three innings. He took one catch behind the stumps against Gujarat Titans.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal- the spinner picked up only one wicket in the last game, his smallest number this season to date. He dismissed Abhinav Manohar at the DY Patil Stadium to take his tally to 12.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals have been far stronger in the IPL 2022 than in the previous year’s tournament. However, they have lost two of their last three games.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Riyan Parag, Kuldeep Sen, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult

KKR Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

After losing by 44 runs to Delhi Capitals last Sunday, Shreyas Iyers’ side made three changes as they looked to bounce back against Sunrisers Hyderabad. In came Aaron Finch, Aman Khan and Sheldon Jackson with Sam Billings, Ajinkya Rahane and Rasikh Salam missing out. We expect to see the same XI for this match

KKR Key Players 

  • Shreyas Iyer- there are 19 batters in the tournament who have scored more runs than Iyer so far this season. However, we expect to see him climb the run scorers list in the coming weeks.
  • Andre Russell- the West Indian all-rounder has top scored twice for KKR this season and hit an impressive 49 not-out from 25 balls before taking 2-25 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
  • Umesh Yadav- although he went wicketless in the last game, he was far and away the most economical of KKR pace bowlers. We expect to see him back in the wickets in this match.

KKR Team Form

After a strong start to the season, KKR have lost successive games against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals. Both defeats have been comprehensive and KKR need to regain some form as soon as possible.

KKR Predicted Playing 11

Aaron Finch, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Aman Khan

RR vs KKR Top Team Batsmen

Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson are our batting recommendations for Rajasthan Royals. Padikkal is competing in only his third IPL and hit an unbeaten century in last season’s competition. Only four players have scored more IPL centuries than Samson.

Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer and Aaron Finch are our batting tips for Kolkata Knight Riders. Finch is a vastly experienced white ball opener and, although he only faced five balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad, he still hit a six. Venkatesh Iyer has struck 48 fours in 16 IPL games.

RR vs KKR Top Team Bowlers

For Rajasthan Royals, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna are our bowling tips. Chahal is in fifth place in the all-time IPL wicket takers list and is only 6 dismissals behind Piyush Chawla in fourth place. Krishna has 4 wickets so far this season and could threaten his previous best tally of 12 wickets last year.

For Kolkata Knight Riders, Varun Chakravarthy, Umesh Yadav and Sunil Narine are our bowling tips. Narine took 2-21 at the Brabourne Stadium last weekend. Yadav took 103 wickets across the 2012 - 2018 IPL tournaments and looks back to his best after a few lean years.
