So, we are down to the last week of the league stage, and it promises to be a humdinger with several teams vying for the elusive Playoff spot. In this predicament, KKR vs RR Live streaming assumes prime importance.

While the hosts Kolkata Knight Riders managed to shrug off the ignominy of back-to-back losses against the Mumbai Indians, as they plummeted the Kings XI Punjab by 31 runs to redeem their campaign.

They will now take on a charged up Rajasthan Royals unit, who on the brilliance of Jos Buttler (five fifties in a row), are coming off a red-hot streak in which they have beaten the likes of CSK, MI, and KXIP, to assert themselves as red-hot favorites to enter the Playoffs. So, who will win KKR  vs RR, let us delve into KKR vs RR live streaming details, in order to catch hold of all the action which will unfold at the Eden Gardens?

Where: Eden Gardens, Kolkata

When: 15 May 2018, 8:00 PM

Pitch Conditions:

The Eden Gardens pitch has been considered as one of the better conditions for batting whilst assisting spinners, evident from Kolkata Knight Riders strategy of fielding plethora of spinners over the years. The 2016 season though saw the pitch being re-laid and being more conducive to fast as well as reverse-swing bowling evident from the rout of RCB (49 all out) inflicted by the likes of Coulter Nile and Woakes last year.

Statistics over the years: While over the past ten years, the average first innings score has swelled from 167 to 179, the team batting first has won 37.1% times while the chasing side has 62.9% of the occasions.
