Rajasthan Royals picked two wickets inside the first six overs but Ishan Kishan’s 25-ball half-century ensured MI chase down the score in just 8.2 overs. Rajasthan Royals should look to forget what happened in the previous game and come with a positive frame of mind.
Facing them are Kolkata Knight Riders, who are in pretty good form. They have exhibited a stellar show in the latter half of the tournament. In 6 games, they emerged victorious on 4 occasions. They ought to win their last league stage match on Thursday to make the playoffs.
