IPL 2021 – Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals – 54th Match Prediction

The fate of the Kolkata Knight Riders is in their hands as they play their final group match of the IPL 2021. If they win, they are unlikely to be overtaken by the Mumbai Indians in net run rate, ensuring their qualification for the IPL Playoffs.

The Rajasthan Royals have been eliminated from contention, so the outcome of this match is unimportant. Leading up to the final few games, RR has been in disarray. It has lost three of its last four games and may give some youngsters a chance in this one.

The match will take place on October 7, 2021, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals Team Previews

Kolkata Knight Riders (Match Odds – 1.57)

KKR will be pleased that it is playing its final match against RR, but it may be disappointed that it is playing in Sharjah. The conditions in Sharhaj have been extremely slow and unsuitable for strokeplay. In fact, batting first can be difficult because determining the par total is difficult.

Shubman Gill scored runs in the previous game, and Rahul Tripathi, Venkatesh Iyer, and Nitish Rana have also been in good form. The KKR batting lineup is unquestionably stronger than the Rajasthan batting lineup as a result of this.

There is a slim chance that Andre Russell will be available for this match, so keep an eye out for that as well.

The KKR bowling attack is very strong and well suited to the spin-friendly surface that is expected for this match. Shakib Al Hasan, Varun Chakravarthy, and Sunil Narine will put up a fight against any batting lineup. Tim Southee and Shivam Mavi are also good pace bowlers.

Kolkata Knight Riders Squad

Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik, Karun Nair, Nitish Rana, Sheldon Jackson, Tim Seifert, Andre Russell, Ben Cutting, Pawan Negi, Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Harbhajan Singh, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Pat Cummins, Prasidh Krishna, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Vaibhav Arora, Varun Chakravarthy, Rinku Singh, Gurkeerat Singh Mann

Predicted XI: Eoin Morgan (c), Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Shakib Al Hasan, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy

Rajasthan Royals (Match Odds – 2.40)

The Rajasthan Royals’ performance in the final weeks of the IPL 2021 would be extremely disappointing. They had a chance to qualify but were unable to deliver when it mattered the most.

RR’s batting isn’t bad, and it could surprise KKR in that department. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Evin Lewis, and even Sivam Dube can all win matches on their own.

With nothing on the line, the RR batsmen may struggle to find motivation for this final match. The bowling selections have also been difficult to comprehend. What’s the point of having Jaydev Unadkat in your squad if you’re not going to play him?

In the bowling department, the Royals lacks several factors like pace, quality death bowlers and reliable spinners. In these final stages of IPL 2021, the team has also failed to find the right balance.

Rajasthan Royals Squad

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c), Jos Buttler, Manan Vohra, David Miller, Anuj Rawat, Chris Morris, Mahipal Lomror, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Shivam Dube, Akash Singh, Chetan Sakariya, Jaydev Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi, KC Cariappa, Kuldip Yadav, Mayank Markande, Mustafizur Rahman, Shreyas Gopal, Gerald Coetzee

Predicted XI: Sanju Samson (c & wk), Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shivam Dube, Glenn Phillips, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Kuldip Yadav, Chetan Sakariya, Shreyas Gopal, Mustafizur Rahman

Pitch and Weather Conditions

For the bstamen, the conditions in Sharjah have been extremely difficult. Scores of 130-140 have been difficult to achieve, and setting a goal appears to be especially difficult. We anticipate another low-scoring match in which spinners will dominate and batsmen will struggle to hit many sixes.
