How is the head to head record?
There has always been a close contest between Kolkata and Rajasthan. Something similar was seen in the first match of this season as well.

The road to playoffs is tough for KKR!
In the points table, Rajasthan with 12 points after winning 6 out of 9 matches are currently at third place. On the other hand, KKR have suffered consecutive defeats in the last five matches. Kolkata is at the eighth position with 6 points out of 9 after 6 losses and 3 wins. In such a situation, if the team loses today, then its playoff hopes can also be almost over. Each team has to play 14-14 matches in this 10-team tournament. Probably the team will have to win at least 8 matches for the playoffs.
KKR has played 9 matches and won 3 matches so far. Even if the team wins the remaining five matches, it will have to keep an eye on the performance of the rest of the teams. At the same time, it is looking very difficult for the team to win all the remaining matches. From bowling to batting, no player of the team has been able to leave a special impression so far. Then the real test of the team will be in front of Rajasthan’s strong bowling line-up.
