Kolkata Knight Riders welcome Royal Challengers Bangalore to the Eden Gardens tonight. Both the teams enter the game on the back of differing results as the Knight Riders suffered a blip against Gujarat Lions. RCB, on the other hand, won against the same opposition after three straight losses.
The good news for the visitors is that AB de Villiers, Samuel Badree and Tymal Mills are expected to be fit for tonight's game and finally, the Challengers will play with their full strength squad. Virat Kohli and co. need to start winning regularly to pick up the pace and join the Knight Riders in fighting for the top spots in the league. Kolkata have an advantage in the head to head with the Gautam Gambhir-led side winning 10 out of the 19 encounters.
