Updated: 19 April

Rajasthan Royals will be taking on Kolkata Knight Riders today in the 30th match of IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium. Both the teams have been in an exceptional form this season but while Rajasthan Royals have been a bit more consistent so far, KKR has lost a couple of their matches in the last few weeks which has worsened their position on the league table. Yet, there is a difference of only one place in the position of both the teams in the IPL 2022 Points table. RR is placed at No.5 with 6 points and KKR is at No.6 with the same number of points. RR has played a match less than KKR.

RR vs KKR: Winning Prediction 

KKR and RR might have the same number of points on the IPL 2022 points table so far but Rajasthan Royals have proven to be a much stronger team this season and they are a tad ahead of KKR in terms of being a completely balanced team. Their brilliant batting order combined with their fabulous bowling unit makes them one of the strongest sides in IPL 2022 and we predict that they will register an easy win against KKR today.
