In the 54th match of IPL 2021, Rajasthan Royals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in Sharjah on 7th October. RR defeated KKR the last time these two teams met this season. 

Kolkata Knight Riders' batting wasn't challenged much in the last match. Shubman Gill scored fifty while Nitish Rana supported him. Venkatesh Iyer is the key player for KKR - who is not only in fine form with the bat but with ball as well. 


Shakib Al Hasan can be a game-changer, especially in the slow pitches of Sharjah. Watch out for Sunil Narine. It will be interesting to see if Andre Russell and/or Lockie Ferguson will play since they have started to practice with the team. 

Yashavi Jaiswal has consistently done well up the order for Rajasthan Royals this season. If Evin lewis is not available, Liam Livingstone could replace him at the top. Chris Morris, too, can come back in the playing XI in place of David Miller. 

KKR v RR is a rather closely fought rivalry where Kolkata has 12 wins out of 24 matches played, one being abandoned. 

KKR v RR: Head-to-Head:

  • Total – 24
  • Kolkata Knight Riders – 12
  • Rajasthan Royals – 11
  • No Result - 1
