KKR Playing 11: One more loss and Kolkata Knight Riders can consider themselves out of the playoffs race. The Shreyas Iyer-led side showed prominence in their opening games of the season, but they have suddenly slumped into deep waters and are on the verge of drowning.
Kolkata Knight Riders will now take on the red-hot Rajasthan Royals in match no 47 of Tata IPL 2022. This would be their second meeting against the Royals. In their previous battle, Royals came out at the top with a 7 runs victory. To stay alive in the playoffs race, KKR needs to win this one at any cost.

KKR still struggling to find the winning combination. KKR has a lot to ponder upon. They are one of the most unsettled and perplexed sides along with Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. The Knight Riders are still looking to find their winning combination and have made a lot of changes, especially at the top.
Venkatesh Iyer has been nothing but a disappointment. Venkatesh Iyer took the second half of IPL 2021 by storm with his astonishing hitting abilities right at the top. His heroics forced the KKR management to retain him ahead of the 2022 IPL, but the left-hander from Madhya Pradesh has failed to leave an impact this season so far. The captain and team management have been backing him this season as well, but Iyer’s failure might force them to axe him from the eleven in this game.

For KKR, changes are definitely expected. Anukul Roy for Venkatesh Iyer? Is Harshit Rana fit to feature? Aaron Finch or Sam Billings? The management has a lot to ponder.
