Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: There is a slight chance of rain during tomorrow’s day match but there is still a high probability of a full match.
Pitch Condition: The wicket of the Eden Garden have pace and bounce so pacers are expected to come into play. The team winning the toss has mostly opted to bowl first here and if the last three matches are anything to go by, the team winning the toss would want to bowl first.
170 is expected to be par score here. In the last match here, KKR bundled out RCB for a mere 49 runs.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
- KKR will look to bring back their spearhead Nathan Coulter-Nile in place of Darren Bravo.
- So, they will also look to bring in an extra batsman in place of Piyush Chawla. Suryakumar Yadav or Ishank Jaggi could be an ideal replacement.
- Delhi Daredevils have roped in Marlon Samuels as a replacement for injured Quinton de Kock.
- However, Marlon Samuels will join the squad on 29 April (Saturday) so he is unavailable for today’s match.
- For the 3rd and 4th foreign player slot, it will be a toss up between Kagiso Rabada, Sam Billings, Corey Anderson and Angelo Mathews.
- They might also bring in Shahbaz Nadeem if they bring in a foreign batsman.
