The 54th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will take place between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday, October 7.

The Knight Riders are placed at the fourth spot in the points table and with a win over the Royals, they would strengthen their chances of making it to the playoffs.

On the other hand, RR are almost out of the playoffs race but can spoil the party of the two-time champions.

Head-to-Head record:

Played: 23 | KKR won: 12 | RR won: 11 | No result: 0

Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson (c & wk), Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shivam Dube, Glenn Phillips, David Miller/Liam Livingstone, Rahul Tewatia, Shreyas Gopal, Kuldip Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya.
