KKR vs RR: Preview, head-to-head and Fantasy XI

IPL 2018 Our destiny is in our hands says KKR coach Jacques Kallis Twitter

Considering the current statistics, both teams have chance to qualify for the next round.

Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab are fighting very strongly in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League. Sunrisers Hyderabad have claimed a playoff spot, while Chennai Super Kings are almost there; but two points separate five teams vying for the remaining two.

Buttler hit six boundaries in an over for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL on the day he was recalled to England's Test squad.

Yet another season to forget for Virat Kohli-led side.

Stokes back for his last over and once again makes a breakthrough for RR. After suffering two back-to-back defeats at the hands of Mumbai Indians, KKR made an emphatic comeback in their last game hammering 245/6 in 20 overs against KXIP. "Last game is in Jaipur and we know that ground well".

He got rid of the home-bound English duo of Ben Stokes and Buttler, besides Stuart Binny and Ajinkya Rahane.

Kolkata Knight Riders host Rajasthan Royals in IPL on Tuesday.

KKR won the toss and put RR to bat first. The match between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday will also be crucial for RCB.

They have themselves to blame for putting themselves in such scenario. They need to win by a huge margin against RR, to ensure KXIP can not reach them, even if they lose their final round robin match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They got home with two overs to spare, ensuring they gave their net run rate a handy fillip ahead of their final league game.

A drawn match would mean that both teams will end up with 13 points each with their NRR more or less remaining unaffected. As the target drew closer, Kolkata looked to up the ante in a bid to better their net run rate, which might come into play to determine the qualifiers.

From staring at elimination a little over a week ago, Rajasthan Royals have won three in a row to move to fourth on the points table, spurred on by an incredible run of form from Jos Buttler - five fifties on the trot - and some crafty pace bowling from Jofra Archer.

Rajasthan had played five games at Eden Gardens and have registered only one win against the home side.

The equation is simple, win and you have nearly made it to the playoffs. A loss or washout will bring down curtains to their campaign.

"They started off brilliantly but it shows our character". Dinesh Karthik's men are assured of a place in the playoff if they win their next two matches.

If KKR lose to the Royals, then they need to beat SRH by a huge margin if more than two teams are locked on 14 points at the end of the group stage.

The dismissal was just the beginning as Kolkata Knight Riders rushed in through the creek. But then Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell came to the party.
