Pitch report: Eden Gardens pitch tends to slow down as the game progresses. It becomes slower under lights and dries up to help the spinners.
Preview: Dinesh Karthik was the second-most expensive buy at an IPL auction and comes into the tournament having enjoyed a good run of late. He finished the Ranji Trophy as the second-highest run-getter - behind Robin Uthappa, who is on the other side in this game - and in the IPL, will be expected to hold the middle and lower order together. Used primarily as a finisher last season, Knight Riders have decided to use Suryakumar Yadav as something of a floater in the line-up. The start was promising - evidenced from his 20-ball 46 against Mumbai Indians - but consistency and discipline will decide how successful the experiement eventually will be.
Match Stats:
Gautam Gambhir's fifty against Mumbai Indians helped him draw level with Suresh Raina on the list of batsmen with most fifty-plus scores - 24 - in the IPL
Royal Challengers have beaten Knight Riders six times in the 14 games the two sides have played against each other in the IPL
Virat Kohli has led Royal Challengers in 40 games and won 19 of those
