IPL 2021: Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals face to face at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
RR vs KKR: Rajasthan Royals team captained by Sanju Samson has won only one of the 4 matches so far in the season. Similar is the case with Kolkata Knight Riders, who have also lost 3 out of 4 matches. In the 18th match of IPL-2021 at Wankhede Stadium, Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson won the toss and decided to bowl first.
KKR, captained by England’s World Cup winning team captain Eoin Morgan, and the Royals, led by the less experienced Sanju Samson, have yet to perform well as a unit. The problems of the two teams are almost the same. Their top-order batsmen have failed to score big and play partnerships.
Talking about the head to head record, 22 matches have been played between Rajasthan and Kolkata so far. Kolkata won 12 times, while Rajasthan Royals won 10 times. In the current season, KKR defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the first match but after that they have lost three matches in a row. Kolkata are in sixth position with one win in four matches and now face the last-placed Royals, who have suffered three defeats in four matches.Playing of both teams-11
