The Indian Premier League was an exciting one for the Royal Challengers Bangalore for the first time this season as they did end up winning their first game at last. In fact, it was a delight for the last second in the points table, Rajasthan Royals as well, as they too got to see victory after so many losses.
Today, two games will be played as it’s Sunday. The first game is scheduled between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Chennai Super Kings at 4:00 PM, at Eden Gardens Kolkata.
Weather wise, rains in Kolkata will remain away and weather will remain dry. Temperatures will settle between 29 and 35 degrees. The weather will not only be hot but since humidity will be on the higher side, players will have to face extreme discomfort.
The last time these teams met at Chennai, KKR lost by a good number and Chennai literally throttled them. However, KKR may have a chance today as they will be playing on their home ground. While KKR have Andre Russell, the top order of the CSK have also been performing quite well.
The bowling side of the CSK is as strong as ever, and it will be interesting to see whether, the top of the points table Chennai will continue its winning streak or Kolkata Knight Riders will be able to break this spell.
