Kolkata Knight Riders v Rajasthan Royals – Team News

Kolkata have had a disrupted opening pair throughout the IPL but Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana did okay against Chennai last time out.

That could be enough to see them keep their places at the top, even if KKR are tempted to hand the final game to Tom Banton.

They will also have to assess Andre Russell’s fitness ahead of this one but Dinesh Karthik could move up the order slightly.

Rajasthan are unlikely to make too many changes after starting to find more form towards the end of the group stages.

Ben Stokes should continue at the top of the order after taking his opportunity.

The big question will be where the Royals choose to utilise Jos Buttler. He is likely to stay in a floating role further down.

Their bowling attack, led by Jofra Archer, is also likely to have a similar look for this final group game contest.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Rajasthan Royals – Betting Tips and Prediction

Even if it proves too little, too late for the Royals, they have certainly found some better form in recent outings.

There was a lot to like about their victory over table-toppers Mumbai two games ago and again against in-form KXIP.

Having Ben Stokes at the top and in-form has certainly helped. He has taken the pressure off Sanju Samson and Steve Smith. Jos Buttler remains a potent weapon wherever he plays.

Backing them to win this one looks at good bet at the prices. The Royals can be backed at 2.04 with 1xBet.

Stokes a Value Selection

The England all-rounder has really hit top gear in recent matches. He continued that with a half-century against KXIP.

He is priced at 4.5 with bet365, which seems a little too big given he will again open the batting. Jos Buttler is at the top of the market but he will likely have to do his work lower down the order once more.

That makes Stokes a value bet at the prices and the fact we know all about his positive approach at the crease.

Rana to Star with the Bat for KKR

Nitish Rana looks a solid selection in the top Kolkata batsman market. He is another that has had an inconsistent time of it this IPL but does look in good nick at the moment.

His duck against KXIP has been bookended by 81 against Delhi and his 87 against Chennai in the last game.

Rana is again likely to keep his place at the top of the order and his price of 4.5 with bet365 looks appealing.
