KKR vs RR LIVE Streaming Online: Rajasthan Royals captain Ajinkya Rahane won the toss and elected to field against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) eliminator. Both teams remained unchanged from their previous games. While Kolkata beat Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan got the better of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kolkata and Rajasthan ended third and fourth respectively on the league table, with not a lot separating them.
In the first eliminator of IPL 2018, the Rajasthan Royals will take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday evening. Both the teams are coming into this match on the back of promising wins and would like to keep their campaign going with another victory. However, KKR will have an upper hand due to home conditions.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, is short of options with two of its biggest superstars – Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler – leaving for England. Other players pulled off an inspiring performance in their last league game against RCB and something similar would be needed if they want to stay alive in the tournament.
The unfortunate news for the fans is that it has been raining in Kolkata and thunderstorms are expected even on the match day. In case there is a washout, KKR will play the second qualifier while RR will be knocked out on the basis of points table standings.
