Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals, RR Playing 11 vs KKR (Predicted), IPL 2022, Match 47, KKR vs RR. The 47th match of IPL 2022 will be played between 8th placed Kolkata Knight Riders and 2nd placed Rajasthan Royals. The match is scheduled for 2nd May, Monday at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai at 7:30 pm. Both the teams will play their 10th match of the season against each other.
Kolkata Knight Riders were defeated for the sixth time in the Indian Premier League 2022. The Delhi Capitals were the team that defeated them. The franchise has lost five matches in a row. In their last match against Delhi Capitals, they lost the match by 4 wickets. If KKR losses one more match then the team will be out of the Playoffs race. It is important for the franchise to win all 5 matches.
The Kolkata Knight Riders, led by Shreyas Iyer, would do all in their power to avoid that situation, and a win over RR might help them regain that edge. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have twelve points and consider Gujarat Titans to be a shared adversary. As a result, Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals will be gunning for that two-point cushion as well.
Jos Buttler’s second century of the season followed by Yuzvendra Chahal’s five-wicket haul, including a game-changing hat-trick ensured a 7-run victory for Rajasthan Royals in the previous IPL 2022 match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Brabourne Stadium.
Aaron Finch, and Shreyas Iyer’s half-centuries and Umesh Yadav’s late blitz gave Kolkata Knight Riders a chance before they fell short in a big chase of 218. KKR could manage 210, falling short by 7 runs. Rajasthan Royals defended 217 by the skin of their teeth in an instant IPL classic with debutant Obed McCoy rearranging Umesh Yadav’s stumps to see out a nerve-jangling win.
Rajasthan Royals played their last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore where they won the game by 29 runs. Riyan Parag smashed 56 runs while Kuldeep Sen picked up 4 wickets for Rajasthan Royals in that game. Rajasthan Royals will play against Mumbai Indians on 30th April at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai before taking on the Kolkata Knight Riders on 2nd May.
