Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers bowl out Rajasthan Royals to 142

IPL 2018 Live RR vs KKR:Kolkata wins the toss

But now, with a solitary win in six games, KXIP look a jaded, misguided side.

The Indian Premier League has been taking as many twists and turns as it could. The one-man show by Jos Buttler is spectacular to watch and he leaves no stones unturned to bag victory for his team. In all, two points separate teams No. 3 to 7. Rajasthan is also in high spirits after Job Buttler powers the Royals to a magnificent win at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

Yet another season to forget for Virat Kohli-led side.

RR have made three chages in their playing XI. The West Indian was the top-scorer for KKR in their last match, contributing 75 runs. "We believe they are the ones (Yuvi, Finch) who are going to finish the games for us", he said after the game against MI.

While, Royals will hope for Buttler to continue his form in the upcoming games, a lot will be expectEd from skipper Ajinkya Rahane and Ben Stokes, who have failed to perform to their abilities this season.

Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Rajasthan Royals at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on May 15, 2018.

Kolkata: Hosts KKR have won the toss and have elected to field. The match between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday will also be crucial for RCB. It might make things hard for KXIP to catch up to them on NRR, and even tougher for MI and RCB, who are now on 10 points in the table to reach up to RR.

They have themselves to blame for putting themselves in such scenario. Should KKR triumph, they will have moved closer to the play-offs; if they lose to Rajasthan, they can still progress if they win their last match provided Rajasthan and KXIP lose their last match. But it will still not guarantee them a spot in the Playoffs. KKR haven't won more than two matches on the trot this season; if they do manage to string together three wins on the trot here, they would have secured a berth in the playoffs, according to an official press release.

Interestingly, both the teams have 6 wins in the 12 matches they have played.

It could be a battle between the spinners of KKR and the pacers of RR.

What time does the IPL 2018 match, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) match start?

A win over RR on Tuesday, May 15 at the Eden Gardens will give them a huge boost as it brings down the NRR of nearest-rivals Royals.

The equation is simple for KKR. They took the chance and started the match with full confidence.

Rajasthan, hunting a fourth win on the reel, looked set for an imposing target on Tuesday evening as Buttler and Tripathi teed off - Tripathi, spilled at slip from the first ball of the match by Nitish Rana, striking four boundaries in succession off Prasidh Krishna before Buttler punished Mavi.
