Live Score, IPL 2021, KKR vs RR Cricket Score: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of IPL 2021 Game 54 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals. Stay tuned as we will bring you all the game updates.
Overview: The Kolkata Knight Riders face the struggling Rajasthan Royals in the 54th IPL 2021 game on Thursday in Sharjah.
KKR with six wins in 13 matches is fourth in the standings and a win over RR would make their qualifying for the playoffs almost a guarantee. The Mumbai Indians also have 12 points from 13 games, like KKR, and face Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday.
If KKR and MI win their matches, qualifying for the playoffs will be decided based on the net running rate and Kolkata is currently ahead of Mumbai in this department. So apart from a win, KKR will also aim to improve their NRR against RR to ease their path to knockouts.
Kolkata was one of the fit teams in the second phase of the 2021 IPL, taking four wins and two losses. Their two losses were weak and they enter Thursday’s game after beating SRH by six wickets.
Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi and Shubman Gill played well with the bat while Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine shone with the ball. They are hoping for another team effort against RR.
Rajasthan languishes in seventh place in the points table with just 10 points and is still alive in the playoff race. Although for that to happen all other results must go in their favor and they should register a big margin victory over KKR.
So far, hitters have been their Achilles heels and it will have to be good for them to have a chance against KKR.
