Hello and welcome to sports stars LIVE coverage of the Indian Premier League 2022 match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders from Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

The high-flying Rajasthan Royals (RR) will try to shake off the disappointment of a five-wicket defeat to Mumbai Indians when they face a struggling Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a return leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday.

The Knights, who got off to a good start in the 2022 edition, now have a five-game loss streak. Captain Shreyas Iyer’s statement after losing his match to Delhi Capitals was telling.

“The combinations have not worked for us. We are trying to find one,” he said. KKR made 13 changes to its playing eleven halfway through – the most of any team.

On Monday, Orange Cap holder Jos Buttler and Purple Cap owner Yuzvendra Chahal will look for the place where they left in the first leg against KKR on April 18.

It was the first time in the 15-year history of the IPL that a batter (Buttler) scored a century and a bowler (Chahal) took a hat-trick and five wickets in the same match.

Although Shreyas and Aaron Finch scored 85 and 58 respectively, RR defeated KKR by seven points. The batting was a disappointment for KKR, as it had lost the most wickets in the first six overs so far: 18.

With Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna amplifying the Royals’ attack in the PowerPlay, the highest order of the Knights will have to stay sharp. For RR, Shimron Hetmyer’s finishing acts have often saved his blush.

However, the Guyanese batter, who is currently IPL 2022’s leading points scorer (158) at death, will need Riyan Parag and Daryl Mitchell to back him up from the other side.
