KKR vs RR Head to Head Records: Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) H2H Record Against Rajasthan Royals (RR)- IPL 2021 Match 54. Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will play their last league stage match against each other on Thursday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Kolkata Knight Riders have made a great turnaround in the second leg of IPL 2021.
In 6 matches, they have managed to win four games and need to win one more to make a top-four finish. A must-win game awaits for KKR at Sharjah Cricket Ground. They have played one game at Sharjah Cricket Ground this season and won that game comfortably.
Kolkata Knight Riders played their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, which they won by 6 wickets. Shakib Al-Hasan replaced Tim Siefert in the playing XI and it reaped rewards for them. KKR restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad to just a 115-run total in the first innings, thanks to a collective bowling effort from the team.
Tim Southee and Shivam Mavi made a great start with the ball before Shakib Al-Hasan, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy kept the batsmen guessing with their guile and turn in the middle overs. Southee, Mavi and Chakravarthy all picked two wickets each.
KKR didn’t make a great start with the bat in the second innings, having lost Venkatesh Iyer and Rahul Tripathi in the first seven overs. Shubman Gill, however, held firm and up the ante in the middle overs. He hit some gorgeous shots to both pacers and spinners and took the team to a commanding position. Gill scored 57 runs off 51 balls and thereby helped the side chase down the score in 19.4 overs.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, are languishing at seventh on the points table with 5 wins in 13 matches. They dashed all hopes of reaching the playoffs after suffering a humiliating defeat against the Mumbai Indians in their last game. Only a miracle from here could help them make a top-four finish. But, for now, they need to concentrate on the game at hand.
Rajasthan Royals’ batting unit succumbed to some great bowling display from MI. The fast bowlers bowled at great areas and picked wickets in a pack. As a result of that, Rajasthan Royals succumbed to just 90 runs in the first innings.
The bowlers also were left clueless against the fearless batting display by Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan as MI finished the game in just 8.2 overs. All in all, it was a forgettable outing for RR and they should look to come with a positive frame of mind on Thursday.
