Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: This has been a good ground for batting second so far this IPL. Big runs and some eye-catching boundary hitting are possible here. A total pushing towards 200 is needed to be competitive.

Rajasthan Royals v Kolkata Knight Riders – Team News

  • Jos Buttler – You feel the opener needs to fire and fire big if Rajasthan are to make their mark here. When he falls early, life seems to get harder and harder for the team.
  • Chetan Sakariya – The young Indian bowler has been a real highlight for the Royals. He has consistency and always seems to find a way to take wickets.
  • Eoin Morgan – The England captain hasn’t been able to work his magic at the Knight Riders just yet. He has plenty to work with but also needs a score of his own.
  • Andre Russell – The West Indian star looks in fine form this IPL. He is taking wickets and hitting big sixes once again and will be vital to Kolkata’s hopes.
  • Dinesh Karthik – Giving up the captaincy to Morgan seems to have released the shackles a little. He has scored some good runs down the order and a late contribution might prove the difference in this one.

Rajasthan Royals v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction

It has been a frustrating start to IPL 2021 for these two teams and both are in desperate need of a confidence-boosting success from this clash.

Rajasthan have been hampered by injuries to Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, while Kolkata have struggled to gain any momentum under new skipper Eoin Morgan.

However, the form of Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell puts them in a strong position if one of their top-order batsmen can fire again.

Preference would go to Kolkata for the win but looking at other markets could be a better way of finding value.

Rana and Buttler to Both Score 20+ Runs

It has not been the easiest of times for these openers but we like the look of this bet being offered by 22Bet.

Kolkata’s Nitish Rana started with scores of 80 and 57 this IPL before dropping off in the last two games. Rajasthan’s Buttler, meanwhile, hasn’t faired that well but did hit 49 two games ago.

It is possible to score big runs in Mumbai and backing both men to get more than 20 runs each looks appealing.

The price of 2.4 with 22Bet is also a good price for a bet that could be wrapped up in double-quick time.

Buttler to Bag the Most Sixes

Jos Buttler looks to be carrying much of Rajasthan’s hopes at the moment.

After him and Sanju Samson, there doesn’t seem too much firepower for the Royals.

However, he has looked in good form at times and backing him to hit the most sixes seems a good longshot bet at 7.0 with bet365.

Andre Russell is the favourite but Kolkata will be hoping he won’t have long to bat should their top order finally play a bigger role.

Buttler opening gives him an advantage here, especially at the prices.

Andre Russell to Hit a Six and Take a Wicket

The powerful West Indies star looks back to his best this IPL.

He is playing with confidence and wickets and runs have followed. He already has a five-for and a half-century to his name.

Russell is priced at 2.25 with 22Bet to take one wicket and hit one six in this match. It looks a value price compared to those offered in the player performance market for the same player.
