In a do or die match, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will take on each other vying for a place in the knockouts, playing their last league match of the season. While Kolkata will hope Nitish Rana extends his form at the top, Rajasthan will bank on in-form Ben Stokes to get them a win.
Ben Stokes in last 5 games - 50, 107, 30, 19, 15
Ben Stokes didn’t quite have the best of the start of the season, struggling to get going after slow starts. However, the English player changed the fortunes of the Rajasthan team and his form at the same time, scoring his first century for the franchise and got them over the ropes against the mighty bowling lineup of Mumbai. He then followed it up with a brilliant half-century indicating that his form is here to stay and what we know from Ben Stokes playing career, he has the tendency to perform in high stakes match. The stage is set for Stokes to take his team to the playoffs with an emphatic knock and you can hop on to 1xBET if you want to take full advantage of this amazing bet, where you will a return of 4.5x.
Best Bowler On Team Rajasthan Royals - Jofra Archer - @2.6
Jofra Archer in last 5 games - 2/26, 2/31, 2/21, 1/20, 0/38
Archer has only become more lethal as the season has progressed, taking 19 wickets in 13 matches. In the last two matches especially, he has been on a steamy run hitting high 140s and touching 150 consistently, being a nightmare for opposing batsmen. It’s not even that he takes the wickets of tailenders to improve his tally, he takes crucial wickets at crucial intervals in the match. In the last match only, he gave just 26 runs in a high scoring, dismissing Mandeep Singh for a duck and then, bowled a superb last over of the innings to build the momentum of Rajasthan’s chase. His only problem has been that he has not received any support from his teammates, making him the most obvious choice to be the top bowler against Kolkata. 1xBET is offering a return of 2.6x on this bet, making it an attractive deal for you.
Highest Opening Partnership - Rajasthan Royals - @1.91
KKR - 53, 1, 11, 3, 48
RR - 60, 13, 30, 26, 50
We all know the mess the Kolkata opening slot has been, which they have changed consistently, failing to find their permanent opener alongside Shubman Gill. Nitish Rana did come good in their last match, getting the team off to a flying start, but such has been the trend of this team that their constant experimental behavior has ruined the form of even in-form players. They are highly unpredictable and inconsistent. On the other hand, we have Rajasthan, who finally seem to have got the Ben Stokes they were waiting for as he played match-winning knocks in both the last matches. Looking at the form guide as well, Rajasthan have outperformed Kolkata when it comes to opening partnership, outsourcing them on every occasion in the last 5 matches, making it highly likely that they will outscore Kolkata this time as well. You can hop on to 1xBET, where you will get an attractive return of 1.91x on this bet, to end your weekend on a high.
