Play-off battle intensifies as Kolkata host Rajasthan
Kolkata Knight Riders host play-off rivals Rajasthan Royals in a crucial IPL match on Tuesday evening, as the regular season approaches its climax.
The sides currently occupy the two play-off spots that are still up for grabs, but are only keeping Kings XI Punjab out on net run rate and are just two points ahead of Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Rajasthan are currently on a three-game winning streak, but lost to their hosts by seven wickets in their previous meeting in April.
Play gets underway at Eden Gardens at 18:30 UAE time.
