Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, have won three and lost three this year, but two of those came in the last two games. KKR are losing the initial sheen shown in the season and the bowling, in particular, appears well below standards. KKR have odds of 1.96 to win this game, but will need their big guns to step up for it.

Keep an eye on…
Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson has had a couple of failures since impressing early on. With Jos Buttler doing the hard yards, Samson’s lack of runs has gone under the radar, but the Rajasthan Royals skipper needs to step up.
Shreyas Iyer: Umran Malik exposed Shreyas Iyer’s weakness against the short ball last game and teams would look to replicate that strategy against Iyer, especially with his partners not solid against high pace and bounce.
TIP: Andre Russell has showed good attacking instincts, and has taken off in the death overs. Against the RR attack, Russell’s chances stand at 7.55 to be top batter!
