IPL Match Today, Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders, IPL 2024: Head-to-Head, pitch report and likely XI

May 19, 2024 09:50 AM IST

RR face KKR on Saturday, in their last IPL 2024 league fixture. Here are their head-to-head, likely XI, fantasy XI and pitch report details.

It will be a battle of two qualified teams for the playoffs as inaugural edition champions Rajasthan Royals will hosts the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Barsapara Stadium in the final double-header of the league on Sunday. While KKR have already themselves at the top of the table, RR will have one last assignment of winning their last group stage match against the former to seal the 2nd spot.

Both teams will contest in the unavailability of their English sensations Phil Salt (KKR) and Jos Buttler (RR). While RR handed the opening duties to Tom-Kohler Cadmore, KKR will likely opt for the services of Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz alongside Sunil Narine.
