Andre Russell will be one to watch in the game.
Kolkata will take on Rajasthan in the 47th match of the Indian T20 League 2022 on Monday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Kolkata made a terrific start to the competition, winning three of their first four games, but they have since lost five games in a row. Rajasthan, on the other hand, is within easy walking distance of a top-two finish. Their loss against Mumbai resulted in a two-point loss, and they will look to regain their momentum. These two teams have played 25 IPL matches against each other, with the Rajasthan Royals winning 12 and the Kolkata Knight Riders winning 13. Rajasthan defeated Kolkata earlier this season by 7 runs.

KOL vs RAJ, Match 47 Pitch Report:
The Wankhede pitch is an excellent scoring venue that also provides some assistance to bowlers. A similar pitch is expected this time. Both prior games were won by teams batting second, but five matches before that were won by teams batting second, so dew could be a factor, so batting second would be a wise decision at this venue.
