As of now, the Rajasthan Royals have a 3-0 record while the Kolkata Knight Riders have yet to play a match. As a result of their last two defeats, KKR will be a little anxious going into this matchup. The IPL campaign could be derailed if they suffer a third straight defeat.
There are some weaknesses that can be exploited this season, even though the Rajasthan Royals have been one of the most impressive teams.
This match is currently favoured by the best IPL betting sites, but the odds aren’t all that different. Try to determine which team is more likely to win.
RR vs KKR IPL 2022 match prediction and IPL betting tips. The game will take place on April 18th, 2022, at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.
RR vs KKR Team Previews
The absence of Trent Boult in the previous match appeared to have a significant impact on RR’s performance. However, Jimmy Neesham was not able to give Red Riding the early success it has seen so far in 2018. Boult’s availability would be a huge boost for the Roughriders in this match.
This season, bowling has been a revelation, and the matchups appear to favour them again. Against Aaron Finch, Nitish Rana, or Andre Russell, R Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal have a good record. The eight overs bowled by the RR’s lead spinners could make or break this game.
Kuldeep Sen, on the other hand, showed that he still has a long way to go before he’s ready to take on the art of death bowling.
RR’s batting statistics were dominated by Jos Buttler, and his presence will be critical. RR does not have the same level of batting depth as other teams. It’s also worth noting that Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson haven’t had the best of starts.
Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, and the other all-rounders will be under a lot of stress as a result. We agree that R Ashwin’s use as a floater in the lineup is a good idea, but we think they could have used a more aggressive player instead.
We’d put our money on Yuzvendra Chahal to take wickets and Sanju Samson to score runs if we were betting on the game.

Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR was thrashed by SRH in their previous match, their second in a row, and they are now mired in the middle of the table. KKr’s IPL 2022 campaign has had a number of setbacks thus far. In our opinion, the choice of Aaron Finch as the team’s starting pitcher isn’t the best one.
We advise against betting on him in most of his matches because he has a history of being erratic. Batting order is under pressure because Venkatesh Iyer is going through a slump, too. Short-ball attacks will be expected from Umran Malik after he was peppered by Shreyas Iyer in the previous match.
Although Nitish Rana and Andre Russell are currently in excellent form, the quality RR spinners could prove to be a challenge for them. In this match, we are not optimistic about KKR’s batting prospects.
There are also some major concerns with the bowling lineup. In this match, Pat Cummins has an economy rate of more than 12.00, while Varun Chakravarthy has had one of his worst showings. Despite being an excellent wicket-taker in powerplay situations, Umesh Yadav can be costly.
One player, Sunil Narine, can be relied upon to slow the rate of runs, but teams can attempt to play him out without suffering too many losses in terms of wickets.
An already uncertain format is made even more so by the fact that KKR has so many questions to answer in this match.
Kolkata Knight Riders Playing 11
Shreyas Iyer (c), Aaron Finch, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine, Umesh Yadav, Aman Hakim Khan, Varun Chakaravarthy.
RR vs KKR Toss Prediction
Team A will likely field first, regardless of whether or not they win the coin-flip. Anti-dew sprays are being used later in the day, reducing the dew’s impact, but teams still want to compete. The team batting first has won two of the last four matches, while the chasing team has won the other two.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The weather is expected to be similar to what we’ve experienced thus far. As one of the best batting grounds in the country, Brabourne will be the setting for this matchup between two potent batting units. It’s possible that both teams will score in excess of 170. Even though spin has already begun to play a role in most venues, it will not be any different this time around.
