The Indian Premier League is now entering its 47th match, which means that there are just 23 more games before we find out the four teams that will be competing in the Play-Offs of the IPL 2022. At this moment in time though, we are still none the wiser as to who will make it to the next stage of the tournament as there are eight teams fighting it out for the four sports that are available. The 47th match will see the Kolkata Knight Riders play the Rajasthan Royals, and here is our prediction of who will win the game.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team Preview

The Kolkata Knight Riders were sitting at the top of the table early on in this competition, but they have gone on to lose five matches on the spin and are now languishing down in eighth place with six points to their name. This means that they are 4 points adrift of the Play-Offs, but they have a negative Net Run Rate, which could work against them at the end of the Group Stage.

The last match that they played was against the Delhi Capitals, and they lost the match by 4 wickets after they were put into bat first. They got off to a really poor start with the bat and kept losing wickets at regular intervals to find themselves at 83/6 with close to 14 overs on the board. They managed to eventually amass 146 runs, and this was thanks to the bats of Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana - the former scored 42 from 37, while the latter scored 57 from 34.

Doing a spot of online cricket betting is something that many sports bettors enjoy doing nowadays, and this even includes those who do not consider themselves to be big cricket fans. This is because cricket is a sport that has a plethora of markets that punters can bet on, meaning that entertainment is in abundance. In our view, one of the best markets that cricket bettors can put their money on is Top Batsman, and we recommend that you try and predict this every so often as the odds on offer will always be good due to the difficulty levels

So, we do we think will top score for the KKR against the Rajasthan Royals? Well, we would put our money on S. Iyer since he has been their most consistent player this season. To date, he has played 9 games and has scored 290 runs with an average of 36.25. He rarely lets his team down, and would be our pick for the KKR top scorer. It is always wise to bet on consistency when betting on a long tournament such as the IPL.

With just 146 runs on the board, the KKR bowlers would have known that they had their work cut out for them, and despite reducing the DC to 17/2 after just 9 balls, they really did not look like they were going to break their rotten losing streak. David Warner hit 42 from 26, while Rovman Powell and Axar Patel saw their side home with 6 balls to spare. The pick of the KKR bowlers was Umesh Yadav, who picked up 3 wickets for just 24 runs from 4 overs, while Sunil Narine bowled really well, conceding just 19 runs from 24 balls and collecting a wicket. However, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, and Venkatesh Iyer all bowled one over and conceded 14 runs.

If you want to do some IPL betting on the top bowled for the KKR, then who would we recommend you put your money on? Well, we would opt for Yadav, as we like the way that he has been bowling as of late. In the 9 matches that he has played in, he has picked up 14 wickets at an average of 18.71 and has a very respectable economy of 7.28.

Do we think that the KKR will make any changes to their playing XI for this match? Well, Sam Billings was dropped for the last game, but Baba Indrajith did not cover himself in glory, so we would not be surprised if Billings is called back into the starting XI. However, we also not be surprised if Indrajith was given one more chance, and the playing XI was the same.

Rajasthan Royals Team Preview

The Rajasthan Royals are currently sitting second in the Indian Premier League table with 12 points to their name courtesy of the 6 wins that they have managed to muster from their 9 matches. They also have a healthy NRR of +0.450, which could help them out when it comes to the end of the Group Stage since it would be worth an extra point and could end up being the difference between making it into the Play-Offs or not. This is why teams are so desperate to protect their NRR when they are playing.

Their last match saw them take on the Mumbai Indians, and they lost by 5 wickets, giving the MI their first win of the season. The MI won the toss and decided to field first, which is something that the RR would not have minded since they have won may matches when asked to bat first in the 2022 IPL. However, from their 20 overs, they could only muster 158, which proved to be at least 10-15 runs short.

Once again, the star batsman for the RR was Jos Buttler, who scored 67 runs from 52 balls, but he was the only one who made any sort of meaningful contribution with the bat. The next highest scorer was Ravi Ashwin, who batted at 7th in the order and scored 21 from the 9 balls that he faced. If one other player had just managed to contribute around 15 runs more, then it is likely they would have won the match.

If you are making use of top IPL betting sites and are thinking about betting on the Top Batsman for the RR, then who do we suggest that you go for in the match against the KKR? Well, there truly is only one candidate that we can recommend, and this is obviously Buttler. The Englishman has been on fire this season and has scored 566 runs at an average of 70.75. If you put money on him to top score, then we are sure that you have a pretty good chance of making a profit.

With 158 runs to defend, the RR bowlers would have been somewhat confident considering the fact that the MI had lost all of their matches before this one. However, despite their best efforts, the MI made it home and claimed their first win of the campaign with 4 balls to spare. The best bowler on the day for the RR was Ashwin, who picked up a wicket and conceded just 21 from his 4 overs. Daryl Mitchell bowled a solitary over that cost 20 runs, and this went some way to deciding the match. Overall, though, this was a close game that really could have gone anywhere in the end. This is the beauty of the Indian Premier League.

If you want to make an IPL prediction on who will be the best bowler for the RR against the KKR, then who would we suggest? Well, you really cannot look beyond Yuzvendra Chahal because, like Buttler, he has been at the top of his game in this years IPL. He has 19 wickets to his name at an average of 13.68 and an economy rate of 7.22. If you bet on Chahal, then you definitely are not throwing your money down the drain.

Do we think that the RR will make any changes to their playing XI? Well, they have been playing very well as of late, and one defeat to the MI in a game that could have gone anywhere, does not change this. Thus, with this in mind, we do not think that they will make any changes for this match against KKR.

Toss Prediction

At the start of the 15th edition of the IPL, the coin toss was having a major say in who would go on to win the match. This was because the side that bowled first has a huge advantage as they did not have the problem of bowling when there was dew about. However, at this stage in the tournament, it seems that things have evened out a bit now and that dew is less of an issue. For instance, from the last 9 matches, 5 have actually been won by the team that lost the toss - this was not the case earlier on since 14 matches from 20 were won by the team that fielded first.

However, although dew is now less of an issue, it seems that teams are still not that eager to bat first and try and put a huge score on the board and pile the scorecard pressure on their opponents. This is probably because they are still a little cautious about there still being dew about, which would hamper their chances of earning 2 vital points. Thus, the toss prediction for this game is that the captain who is lucky enough to win the toss will opt to field first.

Pitch Conditions

This match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, and this is a venue that has an average score of 170 for the team batting first in the 2022 IPL. To date, the teams chasing at this venue have won a little more than 50% of the matches, so this is probably another factor that will convince the winning captain at the coin toss to opt to bowl first. The team that has to bat first will be hoping to score around 190.

Our KKR vs RR Betting Tips

Lately, we have had plenty of matches that were hard to call because the teams are so evenly matched, but we think that this match today is a little easier to call, although it can also go anywhere. If you look at some predictions from other IPL prediction websites, you will probably find that they are sitting on the fence, but sitting on the fence is not in our nature, and the side that we predict will win is the Rajasthan Royals. Why is a RR win our match prediction today? Well, although they lost to Mumbai Indians, they are in much better form than the KKR and have a quality batting and bowling unit.
