The Rajasthan Royals are set to travel eastwards and take on the Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. Ahead of this fixture, both Kolkata and Rajasthan have had contrasting results. The two-time champions have been on a two-game winning run. While the Royals have hit a massive slump as they are on a three-game losing streak with a few big defeats.
After a few poor performances, the Kolkata Knight Riders have finally found a winning combination which has helped the side win two big games. Nitish Rana’s men have made massive improvements with the bat as the likes of Jason Roy, Rinku Singh and Andre Russell have scored a consistent clip. Whereas the bowling continues to reign supreme with KKR spinners shouldering the majority of the responsibility.
On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals have seemingly lost the plot after a stellar start to their season. The batting has managed to hold its own but the middle-order and lower-middle-order batters have failed to put on big scores so far. Whereas the bowling attack has been the major problem with the team conceding a lot of runs, especially in the death.
