THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams are in contention for a top four place but they will only know the size of their task in their final group match once the Kings XI match earlier in the day is over. Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals know they simply have to win regardless of what happens in that game however so this promises to be a tense affair. The pressure is on KKR having lost their last two matches and they have thrown away a couple of golden opportunities to cement a top four spot. Their bowling is some way from its best while the batting remains hugely inconsistent and fragile. The Royals on the other hand are the team with momentum on their side as they have won their last two matches against Mumbai Indians and Kings XI. Ben Stokes’ form has been a highlight with a stunning century and fifty in consecutive matches and if he clicks into gear once again, he can lead the Royals to victory. Form and momentum is clearly on their side and barring some magic from Morgan and company, expect the Royals to get a vital win here.
