KKR vs RR Match Prediction & Preview


The Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals are set to clash heads on Thursday when they battle it out at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Brendon McCullum’s side didn’t make it easy for themselves in their six-wicket victory against the last-placed Sunrisers. They chased the short target of 115 down with just two balls remaining, with Subman Gill providing the spark with a half-century.

It’s a simple equation for the Kolkata Knight Riders. If they win against Rajasthan on Thursday, they make the playoffs. Their impressive net run rate has come in handy at the crucial stage of the season.

Meanwhile, the Royals suffered a season-ending defeat against the Mumbai Indians. They struggled to create meaningful partnerships, particularly in the middle order when they needed it most, only managing to muster a mere 90 runs from their innings.

It didn’t take long for the Indians to chase the target down (with 12 overs to spare). However, they won’t be settling for that performance to end their campaign and will be keen to spoil the Knight Riders party.

There’s a lot more to play for in the Knight Riders case in the last game of the season rather than the Royals, and that’s why I believe the Knight riders will come away with the win and make the playoffs.
