IPL 2023 KKR vs RR: Match preview, head-to-head and streaming details

In their last outing, which took place last season, KKR won by six wickets.

In the 56th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata tonight i.e. Thursday, May 11 at 7:30 PM IST.

With five wins and six losses in 11 games, the two-time IPL winners sit sixth in the rankings. They’ve won their last two games against Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), respectively, to keep their qualification aspirations alive. They will play at home and will try to take advantage of the conditions. They have won three of their past five matches and appear to have struck a winning combination. Rinku Singh will be in the spotlight once more when KKR hosts the visitors and not to forget the form of the destructive, Andre Russell. However, this is a critical match for both of these teams, and the winner will move into the top four of the points table.

RR, on the other side, are fifth in the points table with five victories and six losses in 11 games. They were defeated by SRH by four wickets in a nail-biting conclusion on the last ball. They had the game in their grasp until Sandeep Sharma’s no-ball in the final ball of the match. The Rajasthan-based side has had a fall in form after starting the season brilliantly, losing four of its last five matches, and find themselves in a situation where the team can not afford to drop any points in coming matches. It’s a spinning track at the Edens and the winners of the first-ever IPL bring two of India’s greatest spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendfra Chahal, that would enjoy bowling on this track.


These two teams have met 27 times, with the Knight Riders winning 14 of those matches and Rajasthan winning 12. In their last outing, which took place last season, KKR won by six wickets.
