Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be locking horns with Rajasthan Royals (RR) in match 31 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season. It will be an away game for the Royals. RR will be coming in after winning a close battle against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in their last match. The bowling lineup of the Royals yet again kept the opposition under pressure and only let them score a total of 147 runs. The total looked easy to chase as we have seen a lot of high-scoring matches so far in this season of the IPL. MI vs CSK IPL 2024 Stat Highlights: Chennai Super Kings Beat Mumbai Indians By 20 Runs.

But the problem started when PBKS started taking wickets one after the other and the middle-order of RR was failing hard. Shimron Hetmyer hit a couple of sixes in the final over which sailed RR to the victory. Royals now have five wins in six matches and are at the top of the points table. KKR IPL 2024 Playoff Chances: Kolkata Knight Riders Current Position on Points Table With Net Run Rate, Matches Won and Upcoming Games.
