KKR must win

Kolkata would like to win this match to be held at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. If Eoin Morgan's team wins this match, then their chances of reaching the play-offs will increase. Kolkata has 12 points from 13 matches. At the same time, the team's run rate is +0.294. After winning the match against Rajasthan, the team will have 14 points. Even if Mumbai wins its last league match against Hyderabad and its run rate is less than Kolkata, then Kolkata will reach the play-offs comfortably.

Kolkata captain Eoin Morgan's form a big problem

The biggest problem of this season for Kolkata's team has been the form of team captain Eoin Morgan. In this season, his bat has scored just 111 runs in 13 matches. Whenever the team expected runs from him this season, he has disappointed the team. In such a situation, Morgan would like to recover his lost form against Rajasthan.

Rajasthan is out of play-off

Rajasthan Royals are out of the play-off race after losing the match against Mumbai. In such a situation, this team can spoil the game of Kolkata. Rajasthan will go to play their last league match. In such a situation, this team can give a chance to many young faces. Rajasthan would like a strong start in the match from Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal.

At the same time, the team will expect from captain Sanju Samson in the middle order. In the bowling, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya can once again prove useful for the team with their ball. Rajasthan would like to end the IPL 2021 season on a good note by winning their last match of the league.
