IPL Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs (KKR) Kolkata Knight Riders, Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 :

 

 

Rajasthan Royals (RR) face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their fourth game of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur tonight. The Royals have turned it around with back-to-back wins against Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) after Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) thrashed them in their opening game. KKR, on the other hand, have had a topsy-turvy campaign so far. After impressing with a convincing win over RCB in their opener, they went down in an enthralling contest to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and then surrendered to SRH. However, a dominant win over DD on Monday has put their campaign back on track.
