Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will go up against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their home ground in match no. 56 of IPL 2023 on 11th May at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
With three matches remaining each for both teams, every match will be crucial as they both stand with 10 points each. While RR are in the fifth position, KKR are just a notch below them in the sixth spot. KKR have their last two games with their latest victory coming against Punjab Kings where Rinku Singh became the star of the night with his last-ball boundary to win the game for his team.
On the other hand, RR have slumped in their last six matches with only a single win out of them. The team looked solid at the start of the season but somehow managed to slip lower down the peck. Their bowling unit has underperformed and the team will hope for a better show from them against Kolkata Knight Riders. This will be the first time in IPL 2023 that KKR and RR will take the battleground against each other.
