In their last match this season, Rajasthan Royals won by 7 runs and their star batter Jos Buttler had smashed a ton. However, in all the 27 meetings between these two teams of IPL, Kolkata have a slight upper-hand. While they have met 27 times, one match had no result. Kolkata won 13 and Rajasthan have won 12 times.
Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) have now lost 5-consecutive matches in IPL 2022 and would look to come on the winning track when they take on a high-on-confidence Rajasthan Royals(RR) for the second time this season on Monday at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Rajasthan dominated Kolkata in their previous meeting in the ongoing IPL season.
Kolkata Knight Riders have won just 3 in 9 matches and are placed 8th in the points table. Shreyas Iyer-led side started the season quite well but has been looking off-track for the past few matches. While Shreyas Iyer has been batting decently well, Russell has been occasionally good. The franchise's decision to sit out Pat Cummins after a few bad matches has failed to give any positive result. The side looked clumsy with Venkatesh Iyer's batting position and it could affect the team's performance in the next match as well. Read More
