The Knight Riders, on the other hand, come into this game on the back of a hattrick of losses and will be hoping to end their losing streak.

Batting first, Kolkata managed to score only 127 runs on the back of a knock of 43 off 39 from Jason Roy and a late cameo Andre Russell – 38* off 31. However, the KKR bowlers did a good job to take the game to the last over. Varun Chakravarthy, Anukul Roy, and Nitish Rana picked up two wickets each.
