After registering back-to-back victories in their last two IPL 2020 matches, the Rajasthan Royals will aim to keep themselves alive in the competition by defeating the Kolkata Knight Riders in their final league match. The Royals have 12 points to their name in 13 games, and a win in their final fixture will them take closer to the Top 4.
On the other side, the Kolkata Knight Riders also find themselves in a similar situation. The Eoin Morgan-led franchise have been quite inconsistent in IPL 2020, with six wins and seven losses in 13 matches. A defeat in their last league match will end KKR's IPL 2020 campaign before the second round.
Both KKR and RR are former IPL champions and have clashed in many close encounters over the last 13 years. Here's a look at their head-to-head stats before their reverse fixture in IPL 2020.
