The Kolkata Knight Riders will play their fifth game of IPL 2021 against the Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.

Although both franchises are former IPL champion, they have got off to poor starts this season. KKR and RR have only two points to their name in four matches.

The Knight Riders won their first game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, they lost their next three matches to the Mumbai Indians, the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Chennai Super Kings.

Meanwhile, the Rajasthan Royals recorded a close victory over the Delhi Capitals. However, they could not defeat the Punjab Kings, the Chennai Super Kings and the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

KKR have played one match at the Wankhede Stadium, where they lost to CSK in a high-scoring thriller. On the other hand, RR have played all their matches of IPL 2021 so far in Mumbai.
