KKR Playing 11 for RR vs KKR, Match 30 of IPL 2022: Player Availability & Team News


KKR Playing 11: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were going great guns in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. But since the last two games, they have looked clueless in the tournament. The Shreyas Iyer-led side suffered thumping defeats Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their two consecutive losses have put them fifth on the table and they would be eager to go out and snatch a victory.

Kolkata Knight Riders would be disappointed with their performance against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They would want to bring their A-game back and reclaim their stake in the top four. They are now slated to play Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their next match of the league on Monday (18 April) at Brabourne stadium in Mumbai.

KKR will have all the players available going to the match against RR on Monday. Recently Aaron Finch joined the team and was drafted straight into the XI. He replaced Ajinkya Rahane at the top of the order, which meant Sam Billings also had to make way for Sheldon Jackson.

Although the Australian white-ball skipper had a poor outing in the first match, he’s expected to continue batting at the top, meaning Sheldon Jackson will also keep his place in the side.

There are also no injury concerns in the KKR camp. It is to be noted that, Rasikh Salam was recently ruled out of the tournament due to injury but the J&K pacer was replaced with Aman Khan in the squad.
