Rajasthan vs Kolkata recent form
Rajasthan suffered a 37-run defeat against newcomers Gujarat at the DY Patil Stadium in their previous fixture on Thursday. Put into bat, Gujarat rode on captain Hardik Pandya’s unbeaten knock of 87 off 52 balls and Abhinav Manohar’s 28-ball 43 to post 192/4 in their allotted 20 overs. In reply, Rajasthan were restricted to 155/9 in their 20 overs as the debutants secured another convincing victory. With six points from five matches, Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan are currently placed fourth in the Indian T20 League 2022 standings.
Similarly, Kolkata succumbed to a seven-wicket thrashing against in-form Hyderabad in their last Indian T20 League encounter. After Nitish Rana (54) and Andre Russell (49 not out) powered Kolkata to 175/8 in their 20 overs, the two-time champions failed to defend the total as their former batter Rahul Tripathi (71) and Aiden Markram (68 not out) smashed fifties to claim Hyderabad’s third victory on the trot. Kolkata will look to bounce back after succumbing to consecutive defeats against Hyderabad and Delhi in the previous two matches. Led by new captain Shreyas Iyer, Kolkata have accumulated six points from as many matches and are currently sixth in the Indian T20 League points table.
