Because this is an evening match, the humidity levels are expected to rise throughout the day, which means that the dew factor will almost certainly come into play during the second half, making batting much easier for the chasing team, and thus the captain who calls it right at the toss will have no hesitation in bowling first. A total of 180-185 points can be difficult to achieve.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match
So far this season, the LSG captain has had an excellent run with the bat. He has two centuries against the Mumbai Indians and comes into this game after scoring a 51-ball 77 against the Delhi Capitals. Rahul has already scored 451 runs in 10 appearances, including two unbeaten knocks, with an average of 56.38 and a strike rate of 145.02. He’ll be hoping to keep up his consistent form when he faces the Kolkata bowling attack.
Probable best bowler of the Match
So far, Umesh Yadav has been KKR’s standout bowler. He has been their go-to man with the ball in hand since the season opener against defending champions CSK. The senior pacer may have gone wicketless on a couple of occasions, but that hasn’t stopped him from making the Orange Cap list with 15 scalps to his name. The Vidarbha speedster would be eager to add to his tally of wickets.
