Dinesh Karthik is leading the Kolkata side this time while Virat Kohli is once again the captain of Bangalore team. The Eden Gardens had been popular among the players of India and fans for a long time. However, it’s not so big (area wise) that Karthik would worry to chase the target. The toss has taken place and KKR has won it.
After winning the toss, KKR has decided to bowl first against RCB. Kolkata side has got Lynn, Russell, Narine, and Johnson in form of foreign players. On the other side, Bangalore’s top four include McCullum, Kohli, De Kock, and De Villiers. Kolkata will miss its Australia pacer Mitchell Starc who has given rest due to injury in right shin. So, fellow Aussie Mitchell Johnson will fill the void.
