Team PreviewRajasthan Royals

The Sanju Samson-led side has managed to win just a single game after playing four matches so far in IPL 2021. Moreover, they have the worst Net Run Rate amongst the eight teams and are placed at the last spot in the charts. The Royals suffered a thumping defeat by ten wickets against RCB in their last game as well. RR is expected to make several changes in their side as Yashasvi Jaiswal might replace an out-of-form Manan Vohra for the opening slot.

Team PreviewKolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders don’t have any different story than their opponents. KKR currently holds the sixth spot in the Points Table after winning just one match in four outings. However, they fought hard in their previous game against CSK where they lost a close-contested clash. The Eoin Morgan-led side has also struggled to find the right combination so far in the tournament. The two-time IPL champions also need to rejig their batting order to start a winning run this edition.
