Who Will Win The Match?

Both teams are struggling in the early moment of this IPL 2021. But while Rajasthan Royals (RR) haven’t picked up their form at Mumbai despite playing four straight matches, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be the favourite for the upcoming match due to the presence of solid big hitters who can enjoy Wankhede Stadium.
