Kolkata Knight Riders appears to hold the edge

Jacques Kallis

Kolkata Knight Riders: Shivam Mavi continues to struggle with the finger injury he picked up in the game against CSK.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) match start at 4:00 PM IST, with the toss at 3:30 PM. Whenever Narine has given them the start they are looking for, KKR have looked a unsafe side.

The match will take place at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

Rajasthan were slow to get off the blocks and nearly put themselves out of reckoning before some individual brilliance from England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler catapulted them back into reckoning.

With his exploits with both bat and ball, Narine has emerged as the most valuable player for KKR and the Trinidadian will once again look to play a key role. Rahane has 280 runs from 12 innings with a woeful average of 28.00 and it's high time that he returns among runs to give their batting a stability.

KKR will hope that its batting line-up, comprising captain Dinesh Karthik, Robin Uthappa, Andre Russell, Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill, builds on the momentum and delivers.

Sullivan said they would re-file and request a special prosecutor because Gardner was on the list to be a witness in the case. That didn't necessarily mean a jury wouldn't convict Greitens - especially if the woman's testimony to jurors was convincing.

Starting from hosts first, two back to losses at the hands of Mumbai Indians was so disheartening that the Shahrukh Khan, co-owner of KKR, apologised to the fans for team's poor show. While Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings have qualified for the playoffs, Ajinkya Rahane and his batch of 2018 have left KKR, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab sweating. Narine slammed 75 off 36 balls, while Karthik smashed a 23-ball 50 in their big total in Indore. The batsmen then made sure there were no slip-ups as Jos Buttler scored an incredible 94 runs as Rajasthan chased down the target with one over to spare. The opener has bailed the team out and managed to push it over the line single-handedly with very little contributions from the other batsmen. What works in the visitors' favour is that they seem to be peaking at the right time, but KKR have the home advantage on Tuesday.

RR vs KKR IPL match today, the battle which will decide the match will be KKR's bowling against RR's bowling. Other RR batsmen have generally struggled against Narine with Buttler scoring 26 off 24 (one dismissal), Stokes 13 off 13 (one dismissal) and Samson 21 off 26 (two dismissals).

If RR does beat Kolkata, they need to win their last league game against RCB by a huge margin to boost their NRR, to stand any chance of qualification.

In an very important match, Rajasthan Royals got an fantastic victory.

Their bowling department is dependent on their spin trio of Narine, Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla, while their pace attack does not look solid enough. The result for this match is extremely hard to predict as both teams will give it their all to ensure a Play-offs berth. (First up) play well tomorrow, try and get away with a win and then worry about the other game.
