The top two of the Indian Premier League clash this evening at the Eden Gardens as the Kolkata Knight Riders take on the Rajasthan Royals. The home side has won four games out of the five played and heads into this clash on the back of a brilliant win over Lucknow. After a disappointing last season, Kolkata is playing like their past self. Their batting seems to be their strong point and they have dominated the opposition with their power hitting in the powerplays. Opponents Rajasthan Royals are top of the standings and returned to winning ways after a minor blip against Gujarat.

Nitish Rana is getting closer to his return for Kolkata after injuring his finger in the first game. Sunil Narine and Phil Salt rarely let an opposition bowler settle in the first few overs and this has greatly helped the team. The likes of Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, and Rinku Singh provide solidity in the middle overs. Yuzvendra Chahal Plays Around With Dishant Yagnik and Trevor Penney During Training Session Ahead of KKR vs RR IPL 2024 Clash (Watch Video).

Rajasthan have been given some positive news in the build-up to the game with R Ashwin and Jos Butler set to be involved. Both missed the last game for the visitors, owing to fitness issues.
