Both Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders won 10 games each out of the 21 they played while one match yielded no result.
The twelfth Indian Premier League 2020 match will be played between the Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IND (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be broadcast on TV on the Star Sports Network (available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Additionally, the live broadcast will be available on Disney + Hotstar.
Rajasthan Royals will face the Kolkata Knight Riders in the next match of IPL 2020. So far in the tournament, the royals have won both of their matches. They had an amazing win in the last game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), which would have been a massive morale boost. However, for the first time in the tournament, they will be playing outside Sharjah, where they have achieved great success.
Their opponents in the game, the Knight Riders, are back on the winning path after losing their first game. They have been very supportive against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), but NRR is an area they are looking to improve. In this game, RR will be keen to showcase his prowess outside of Sharjah, while KKR would like to carry the momentum of victory and perhaps surprise the "men in pink and blue".
