Last encounter:

KL Rahul (69 off 54 balls) and Mayank Agarwal (106 off 50 balls) put together a record-breaking 183-run stand for the opening wicket in Sharjah - in the first match between KXIP and RR in IPL 2020. KXIP posted a massive 223 for 2 but were then hit by the Sanju Samson hurricane! The Indian wicket-keeper batsman hammered a breathtaking 85 off just 42 deliveries and coupled with fine performances from Steven Smith (50 off 27 balls) and Rahul Tewatia (53 off 31 balls) took RR to a stunning four wicket win with three balls to spare.

Last encounter in 2019:

R Ashwin starred in KXIP's 12-run win over RR in Mohali in 2019. A fine batting display by the top 4 helped KXIP post a competitive 182 for 6 in the allotted 20 overs. Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi had taken RR to 97 for 1 in the 12th over before R Ashwin got through the defenses of the former. The Indian off-spinner then saw the back of Tripathi in the 16th over. RR's chase was derailed and they fell short of the target. Ashwin was also very restrictive conceding just 24 runs in his 4 overs.
