Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing their last league stage match against Rajasthan Royals on Thursday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. After enduring a torrid run in the first half of the tournament, KKR made a sensational turnaround in UAE.

They have played 6 matches in the second leg of the tournament and managed to win 4 out of them. Kolkata have one game left and need to win that by a big margin to make a top-four finish.

Despite missing the services of Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson, KKR would be confident of beating RR in the next game. They are coming into the game on the back of an impressive 6-wicket win over SRH. Here’s a look at KKR’s predicted playing XI for the game on Thursday.

Venkatesh Iyer had a forgettable outing in the last game with the bat but Shubman Gill was superb during his stay at the crease. In pursuit of a 115-run total, Gill blazed his way to a match-winning 57 off 51 deliveries, a knock that was laced with as many as 10 fours.

His knock ensured KKR earn two more points and stay in contention of reaching the playoffs.
