Rajasthan Royals dearly missed the services of their star seamer Trent Boult who had to sit out in the game against Gujarat Titans due to a sprain. He is expected to return for this match against Kolkata Knight Riders in place of James Neesham. There is a chance of Yashasvi Jaiswal getting back into the eleven for Devdutt Paddikal who got out for a golden duck in the last game. However, the chances are quite low.
Jos Buttler has looked in great form but the side would expect more consistency from their other opener Devdutt Padikkal. Rassie van der Dussen, Sanju Samson, and Shimron Hetmyer are big hitters of the ball and the side would like to see them build partnerships in this game.
