With both teams coming into the fixture on the back of a single loss and four victories in their last five games, the clash between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Rajasthan Royals promises to be a riveting contest between two teams occupying the first two positions on the points table for the time being.

The hosts would be arriving with a boost of confidence, having beaten the Lucknow Super Giants by eight wickets and 26 deliveries to spare just a couple of days before they take on the incumbent table-toppers.

Meanwhile, RR had to go through a nail-biter of a contest against the Punjab Kings, which ended up with them defeating the latter by three wickets with just the unitary delivery to spare.

Probable Best Players of the Match 

Probable Best Batter: Rinku Singh

Even though Rinku Singh hasn’t really been on top of his game this season, the clash against RR might just be the much-needed breakthrough for him. As an Impact Substitute, he could come in and create some massive damage and is one to look out for.

Chahal has been in fine nick throughout this tournament, already picking up 11 wickets in the six games so far. The expansive dimensions of the ground might just suit him, with Chahal playing nine matches at the venue since his debut in the 2013 IPL season, picking up as many wickets.
