In the 70th and final group stage match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Rajasthan Royals will lock horns against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. After losing their last four matches in a row, Rajasthan Royals don’t have the destiny of finishing in the top two of the IPL standings in their own hands, but a win could prove to be enough for them. Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders, who are assured of a top-place finish on the IPL 2024 points table, could take this upcoming match as an opportunity to fine-tune their lineup for the all-important Qualifier 1 next week.

Team News

Phil Salt and Jos Buttler have recently departed for England from the IPL 2024, leaving Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals respectively.

Pitch Report

Rajasthan Royals batting lineup has struggled massively in the last couple of matches of the IPL 2024, posting below-par totals under 150, and the departure of Jos Buttler is a massive blow for them at the top of the order as well. The bowling attack of RR tried desperately hard to defend against these totals, but the efforts from them didn’t prove to be enough.

On the other hand, the departure of Phil Salt isn’t an ideal situation for the Kolkata Knight Riders' batting lineup but the runs in the last few matches from the middle order, including the captain Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, and Nitish Rana, means that they can cope with it well. On the bowling side of things, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy have been exceptional for KKR right throughout the IPL 2024 season, while the likes of Harshit Rana and Andre Russell have also picked up key wickets in the supporting cast.
