RR vs KOL, Match 30 – Who Will Win Today’s Match?
Rajasthan Royals started the season with a bang but the chinks in their armor are now visible. They have been over-relying on Jos Buttler and no other batter has been making a significant contribution. Moreover, the middle-order has been exposed continuously as Riyan Parag is failing as the finisher. In the bowling department, the fifth bowler has been leaking a bit too many runs for their liking.
Talking about Kolkata Knight Riders, their opening has been dismal so far this season. Venkatesh Iyer hasn’t been able to score any runs so far. They also have a fifth bowler issue that needed to be resolved asap.
As per our RR vs KOL Today’s Match Prediction, Kolkata Knight Riders are expected to win this game.
