Kolkata: May 3, 2013

Desperately in need of a win, the Kolkata Knight Riders play host to the Rajasthan Royals at the Eden Gardens in the Indian Premier League today.

KKR have lost seven out of 10 games this season, and they now need to win all their remaining matches to keep their hopes alive. Kolkata will take on the Royals in front of their home crowd at the iconic Eden Gardens, and one would expect that they bounce back strongly with their time running out fast.

Apart from addressing their batting woes, KKR will have to improve their fielding as they gave Virender Sehwag, Unmukt Chand and Warner a lifeline each, which certainly didn’t help their cause.

On the other hand, Rajasthan, who are sitting comfortably at third spot in the IPL-6 points table, will need to shrug off the notion of not winning the away games and look to consolidate their position.

Rajasthan will draw a lot of inspiration from their four-wicket win over the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous appearance.
