IPL2022 is nearing the crucial phase with every team fighting hard to keep their chances and hopes of qualifying for the next stages alive. RR are comfortably at the second spot and will look to get more points soon to qualify for the play-offs as soon as possible. KKR on the other hand are struggling at the 8th place despite their great start to the season with 3 wins of their first 4 matches. They have slumped to a losing streak and will hope to get a win in this match and bring their qualification hopes back on track.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

KKR`s batting has been hugely unsettled in the batting order mostly. Nitish Rana played a brilliant knock of 57 runs and was ably supported by Shreyas Iyer`s 42 runs to take them to 146/9 in 20 overs. Andre Russell and Aaron Finch have played a couple of good cameos but their batters are struggling for consistency big time.

Speedster Umesh Yadav has been amongst the wickets consistently and finished with figures of 4-0-24-3. Narine has been very economical but is not getting support from the other end. Tim Southee and Harshit Rana are providing good support to the pace department.  Russell, Mavi, and Venkatesh Iyer are expected to bowl the fifth bowler`s quota of overs.

Top players to bet on: Shreyas Iyer, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Venkatesh Iyer, Aaron Finch, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Baba Indrajith, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine,Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Harshit Rana

Rajasthan Royals Preview

Jos Buttler has been the on fire this season scoring 566 runs with 3 centuries and 4 fifties so far. Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer, and Padikkal have played some good knocks but are not consistent. Riyan parag and Ravi Ashwin have contributed with the bat wherever the opportunity has arrived.

Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult, and Kuldeep Sen have formed a superb pace trio for the team bowling effectively in the powerplay and death overs. Yuzi Chahal lads the wickets charts with 19 wickets while his spin partner Ravi Ashwin too has been in sublime form with the ball for the team.

Top players to bet on: Jos Buttler, Ravi Ashwin, Yuzi Chahal

Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), James Neesham, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen

Weather Conditions

Mumbai has bright and sunny weather with very less to no chances of rain on the match day. We expect a full match with no external interruptions. Dew might come in to trouble the bowlers in second innings.

Venue Details

Wankhade pitch has been slightly on the tackier side with uneven bounce and slow nature. We expect average scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Both teams will opt to bat second on this pitch as the pitch will swing in the early overs and dew will settle down in the second innings troubling the bowlers to grip the ball.

RR has a well settled batting line-up when compared to KKR and they also have a good bowling attack with good mix of spin and pace bowlers. RR`s only issue has been the all-rounder who gives the sixth bowling option to the team and big hitting prowess in the lower order. KKR lacks the firepower in the bowling attack and struggling to find the fifth bowler for some time. We expect RR to win this match owing to their all-round team balance in batting and bowling departments.

Rajasthan Royals will win the match
