- Rajasthan Royals are understandably low on confidence after successive defeats to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. Sanju Samson has top scored for the Royals in the tournament with 145 runs, no other Rajasthan player has breached 90 runs. With the ball, Chetan Sakariya is their highest wicket taker with 6 wickets in 4 games.
- For Kolkata Knight Riders, they are also struggling with recent form after losing to CSK, RCB and Mumbai Indians. The bulk of their runs have come from Nitish Rana, however, he is still a long way away from the likes of Skikhar Dhawan, Glenn Maxwell and Jonny Bairstow in the race for the Orange Cap. With the ball, Andre Russell has taken 7 wickets in four games including 5-15 against Mumbai Indians.
- With both teams on low form, will they decide to use some new players? Rajasthan Royals are struggling for options after the withdrawals of Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes and Liam Livingstone. For KKR, Lockie Ferguson is yet to make an appearance in the 2021 IPL.
