After registering a seven-wicket win against Punjab Kings in a last-ball thriller, the number 5 seeded Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to take on the winners of the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League, Rajasthan Royals on May 11, Thursday at home. Rajasthan Royals are currently seated on the fourth spot of the points table and have won five of the 11 fixtures they have played so far.
This will be the first time that the Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will lock horns against each other in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. However, if we talk about the last five matches, they played in the past seasons of the Indian Premier League, Rajasthan Royals won the toss three times whereas KKR won it two times. Therefore, we believe in the upcoming encounter, KKR would surely wish to make it equal. Moreover, the home ground factor will play its own charm, and the Kolkata-based franchise will win the toss.
The rivalry between KKR and RR is a close one as Kolkata emerged victorious in 14 of the 27 clashes between the two sides while Rajasthan won 12 battles, with one being indecisive. Speaking of this season, both teams have been performing well. Seeing the performances of both teams in the season, we believe Rajasthan Royals will win the upcoming encounter.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The first innings score of the upcoming clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals at Eden Gardens will be between 160-170 and the powerplay score will be between 45-50.
