Kolkata Knight Riders Form

The Knight Riders bounced back from their loss to the Super Kings by beating the Super Giants by eight wickets.

The Super Giants scored 161/7 off their 20 overs, Mitchell Starc returning the superb figures of 3/28 (econ 7.00) for the Knight Riders.

Phil Salt scored a savage 89* off 47 balls (14 fours, three sixes) as the Knight Riders raced to the win off 15.4 overs. 

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News

There are no injury reports from the Kolkata Knight Riders squad.

Rajasthan Royals Form

After winning their first four matches of the season, the Royals lost to the Titans off the last ball of the match before bouncing back with a three-wicket win over the Punjab Kings. 

Trent Boult (1/22, econ 5.50), Avesh Khan (2/34) and Keshav Maharaj (2/23, econ 5.75) bowled superbly to restrict the Kings to 147/8 off 20 overs. 

Yashasvi Jaiswal (39 off 28) got the Royals' chase off to a good start, but it was thanks to a late rally from Shimron Hetmyer (27* off 10 balls) that they hit their target with one ball to spare.

Rajasthan Royals Team News

The Royals are in good form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.


I am backing Kolkata Knight Riders to win. I am also backing Phil Salt to top score for Kolkata Knight Riders.

Riyan Parag is a good bet to top score for the Rajasthan Royals.
