Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals
WHEN: 23 May, 7:00 PM IST
WHERE: Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
The Eden Gardens pitch has always assisted the spinners throughout the course of 40 overs. Both teams rely on their spinners with RR on the Karnataka duo of Krishnappa Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal and their overseas recruit Ish Sodhi. On the other hand KKR have always played with three spinners and they have been very impressive at home. But with short boundaries behind the bowler always comes handy for the batsmen and it has been a big scoring ground for the teams.
