Kolkata Knight Riders


Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) will be facing each other in the 31st match of the IPL 2024. The match is set to take place at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on the 16th of April 2024 at 7:30 PM (IST). It will be a clash of table toppers and arguably the two best sides in the league so far. Both teams have been impressive and found their own ways to succeed in the league so far. While RR has an insane prowess in bowling, KKR has a great batting order.

RR has a brilliant new-ball duo in Trent Boult and Nandre Burger. But the latter is likely to be benched due to the team combination. As a backup to Burger, RR has Avesh Khan who has been bowling well in the ongoing season. They also have experienced bowlers like Yuzvendra Chahal, Keshav Maharaj, and Ravichandran Ashwin in their lineup. In addition to it, RR has Adam Zampa and several other great bowlers in their lineup, making them the most potent attack. 

KKR has found success on the back of their batting. Their overseas opening pair of Phil Salt and Sunil Narine has done wonders, being arguably the best opening pair of the season. Their finishers have been amazing and the younger batters have stepped up to the occasion. The likes of Angkrish Raghuvanshi and Ramandeep Singh have played a good knock. Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer need to be better. The winner of the battle between KKR batters and RR bowlers would probably have the bigger say on the result.
