RR vs KKR: Match Prediction

KKR started the season on a great note but with time, their performance has dropped due to inconsistency. Their bowling attack has been at its worst in the past two games. On the other hand, RR’s batting line-up is in a good form which would be advantageous to the team. KKR’s performance has slowed down due to a lack of a solid opener and wicketkeeper-batter. RR has its own weaknesses as well but it’s a better-balanced team than KKR. RR will win the next match.
