Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders: RR vs KKR Dream11 Team Predictions
Rajasthan Royals managed just one win in four games on the back of some brilliance from their South African duo of David Miller and Chris Morris. They will need more than just the two to fire if are they are to finish any higher than they did last year. More importantly, they will need their skipper Sanju Samson to step up. After his century in the opening game, he has failed miserably.

The two teams will face each other on Saturday night in 18th game of IPL 2021. This will be the 5th game of the season for both the teams.
