Inaugural champion Rajasthan Royals will take on the Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday (April 18) at the Brabourne Stadium. Both teams have had an excellent start to the tournament but could not carry on their run in their last few games. Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders have suffered back-to-back defeats, and their concern with the opening partnership continues despite the axing of Ajinkya Rahane. Aaron Finch might get another chance at the top to prove his credentials, while Varun Chakravarthy will be looking to recover from the off-day he had.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals were outplayed by Gujarat Titans in their last clash as they failed to chase down 192. Jos Buttler was once again a standout batter for the side as they hit yet another half-century and is currently donning the orange cap. Promoting R Ashwin at the top of the order didn't work well for the Royals as he got dismissed cheaply.
Even skipper Sanju Samson needs to buckle up and play captain's knock in the upcoming match. Meanwhile, Shimron Hetmyer has been a revelation for them in the middle overs, and the franchise will be looking to get back to winning ways in the upcoming encounter.
