KKR vs RR: IPL 2023 team news

The Royals and the Knight Riders have 10 points each from 11 matches, and occupy the median positions – fifth and sixth – in the points table. Rajasthan’s (+0.388) net run rate has provided them with an edge over Kolkata (-0.079). A win will take either team into the top four and, in Rajasthan’s case, top three.

Kolkata are coming into the match with consecutive wins, and are unlikely to tamper with their winning combination. Vaibhav Arora, Harshit Rana, Suyash Sharma – their greenhorn bowlers – have done well, and will be raring for an encore on home turf.

Rajasthan, on the other hand, have lost five out of their last six matches to finally slip out of the top four. Their lone high ahead of the match is the availability of Trent Boult, whom they will back to bowl one of those special opening spells. The choice between Joe Root and Adam Zampa is likely to depend on the pitch.
