Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 56th game of the Indian Premier League 2023 on May 11 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The hosts are sixth in the points table with five wins from 11 games while the Royals, who have the same number of wins and losses, are in fifth place with a better net run rate.
KKR come into this game on the back of a thrilling win over Punjab Kings. Batting first, the Kings posted a total of 179 for 7. For KKR, Varun Chakravarthy picked up three wickets while Harshit Rana picked up another two. In reply, the hosts chased down the target in the last ball of the match. KKR needed two runs from the last ball, when Rinku Singh hit a four to seal a win.
The Royals, on the other hand, lost their previous game to the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Despite a brilliant batting performance from Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson, which propelled them to a total of 214 for 3, they were unable to defend the target. The likes of Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi helped Hyderabad chase down the target. Yuzvendra Chahal picked up four wickets for 29 runs, but the other bowlers leaked plenty of runs.

KKR vs RR IPL 2023 Match 56 Prediction
Both the teams are still in the race for the playoffs. Rajasthan’s batting line-up, apart from Yashasvi Jaiswal, has been inconsistent this season. KKR, on the other hand, look stronger now that Andre Russell has returned to form. Their spin bowlers have also displayed brilliant performance at the spin friendly Eden surface. If they can get the wickets of Buttler, Jaiswal and Samson as early as possible, KKR will be the favourites to win the game.
