Indian T20 League 2024

Match 70: RAJ vs KOL


Preview

It's the last league match of the IND T20 league 2024, the table toppers Kolkata(KOL) will face 2nd placed Rajasthan(RAJ) in match 70 on Sunday, 19 May 2024 at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati. Both sides have qualified for the playoffs, despite the result of this match KOL will finish on the top of the points table whether they win this match or lose this match. On the other hand, RAJ has qualified but in the last four league matches they lost all four matches which is a big concern for them before the playoffs, however, this match is going to be a test for Rajasthan to bring out some positive and forget what has happened in the past. Sanju Samson-led Pink Army will be hoping for two points to lock their place in the second spot to face Kolkata in the first qualifier.

Shreyas Iyer-led Koklata is having the best time in the league they won four out of their last five league matches and their one match washed out due to the interruption of rain against Hyderabad(HYD). Kolkata won 9 matches out of 13 league matches and collected 19 points. Rajasthan, on the other hand, won eight out of 13 league matches and collected 16 points on the points table. RAJ and KOL have been the two teams who have successfully married big-hitting with a potent bowling attack in this campaign and this should be another excellent fixture. 

In their previous meeting, RAJ won the nail-biter on the last ball of the match with the excellent match-winning knock of Jos Buttler who hammered an unbeaten 107* off 60 balls. The English batter guided Rajasthan to cross the line while hitting a boundary on the last ball of the match while chasing a mountainous target of 224 runs against Kolkata. KOL and RAJ have faced each other in 29 matches in IND T20 League history. Out of these 29 matches, Kolkata has won 14 whereas Rajasthan has come out victorious on 14 occasions. 1 match ended without a result between the two sides.
