Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Rajasthan Royals at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on May 15, 2018. The match is scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM IST. The two teams are meeting for the second time in this season of the VIVO IPL, as Kolkata had beaten Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur last month.

Kolkata is currently placed at the third position on the points table while Rajasthan is placed at the fourth position. Both the teams have won six out of their twelve games.

Team News:

Kolkata Knight Riders: The win against Punjab has brought their campaign to life again.

If Shivam Mavi gets fit for this game, he might come in place of Kuldeep Yadav or Piyush Chawla, as the Eden pitch is good for pace bowling. Other than that, the rest of XI must be same as their last game.

"Destiny's in our hands. We just need to play two good games of cricket."KKR coach Jacques Kallis.

Rajasthan Royals:

Jos Buttler has single-handedly brought Rajasthan back in the race with his five consecutive fifties. They are likely to be unchanged, though D Arcy Short's place is debatable. They would look to carry forward the momentum which they have achieved after winning three games in a row.

RR have lost their last five IPL games at the Eden with their only win here coming in 2008.

Sodhi was sidelined from Royals' match against Mumbai on Sunday because of an illness. It remains to be seen if he has recovered sufficiently for Tuesday's clash.

Pitch: There is likely to be some pace and bounce on the wicket, but batting won't be that difficult. We can expect another 175 to 180 score in this game.
