KOL vs RR: The second match of Thursday’s doubleheader will see Kolkata Knight Riders take on Rajasthan Royals in an exciting clash.
The Knight Riders currently sit at fourth place and will have to win their upcoming match against the Royals to ensure they get to the playoffs. A win would see them go through as Mumbai Indians are way behind them in terms of Net Run Rate (NRR). A loss, on the other hand, would make things easier for the Mumbai-based franchise.
Meanwhile, the Royals stand a statistical chance to reach the playoffs, but things might not go in their favour with ease. It’s going to be a tough outing for them.
