In the second match of the weekday doubleheader, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are set to lock horns with Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 54th match of IPL 2021 on Thursday, 7th October, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
KKR have made a good comeback in the second phase of the season in UAE. Though skipper Eoin Morgan has not been in his peak form, the team has done well. They have been aggressive with the bat and clever with bowling changes.
Venkatesh Iyer has been a key player and will be eyeing to make a good start once more against RR. The KKR spinners have been great as well with Shakib Al Hasan joining the duo of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy against SRH.
RR, meanwhile, relinquished a huge opportunity to make the playoffs after losing to Mumbai Indians. While the Royals’ biggest positive has been the performance of some of their young Indian stars, their overseas contingent barring Mustafizur, and to an extent, Evin Lewis, aren’t delivering.
They were obliterated by the defending champions at Sharjah and could only get to 90/9 in their 20 overs. Ishan Kishan’s knock helped MI chased the total down in 8.4 overs. However, they have shown colossal quality and courage.
Waging Odds: Kolkata Knight Riders (1.53) vs Rajasthan Royals (2.40)
KKR are the favorites and are priced at 1.53 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹153.

The fourth playoff spot is on the line with KKR being the favorites to secure the final spot. But, RR have a mathematical chance to make to the playoffs. RR will likely give them a tough fight but the way KKR have played their matches they are unlikely to struggle at the last obstacle.
KKR will win the match.
