Match No.47 of Tata IPL 2022 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals on 2nd May 2022 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Match will start at 07:30 PM IST.
Last time, when both sides(KKR vs RR) played against each other, it was arguably the best match of Tata IPL 2022. Rajasthan Royals defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 runs in a high-scoring encounter. Jos Buttler smashed hundred and Yuzvendra Chahal took fifer with the ball including hat-trick.
Kolkata Knight Riders after promising start have 5 successive defeats in a row and currently they are No.8 in points table. RR, on the other hand is playing dominant Cricket and looking undefeatable. Rajasthan Royals are at No.2 in points table with 6 wins in 9 games.
Problem with KKR is they are trying very different combinations in playing XI and they are not sure yet which is their best opening pair.
Sunil Narine, Aaron Finch, Venkatesh Iyer, Sam Billings and Ajinkya Rahane are the openers they have tried, but opening partnership hasn’t crossed 50-run mark atleast in one match.
In bowling department as well, except Umesh Yadav and Sunil Narine no bowler has featured in playing XI in all games. Trying different combinations is one of reason for KKR to slip down in points table.
