Jaipur, April 07, Sunday at 08:00 PM IST
After an emphatic win over Royal Challengers Bangalore, two times title-winners Kolkata Knight Riders head towards Jaipur for their assignment. The hosts Rajasthan Royals will be seen hosting Kolkata Knight Riders at their fortress Sawai Man Singh Stadium tomorrow in the second fixture of Sunday’s doubleheader. And, the biggest question at the moment is will Jaipur too witness Andre Russell’s Muscle Power? We will find that tonight when the clash begins at 08:00 PM IST.
After starting the campaign with two home wins, Kolkata Knight Riders faced a defeat in Super Over against Delhi Capitals in the third encounter but the win over RCB in the previous encounter would have certainly boosted the confidence of the side.
On the other side, the hosts registered their maiden win of the tournament in the last fixture against Royal Challengers Bangalore after facing four defeats in starting encounters. With the home advantage, Rajasthan Royals will be looking to get going and an enthralling encounter is expected to take place.
