Kolkata is taking on an in-form Rajasthan in one of the biggest clashes of the Indian T20 League 2020. It will be a big Sunday on the cards as the result will make a big impact on the qualification scenario. Kolkata is coming off two consecutive defeats and looking rusty at the moment.
Kolkata is yet to get their best combination and is sitting at the 6th spot in the points table with only one game in hand. The evening game between Punjab and Chennai will decide their road to the playoffs. However, Kolkata is very unlikely to go through to the playoffs this season with the inconsistent performance they showed in the second half of the tournament.
On the other side, Rajasthan is full of confidence after beating the two best sides of the second phase, Punjab and Mumbai. They are coming off two huge wins against them and are looking like a team to beat at the moment.
Ben Stokes made match-winning contributions in both the matches with both bat and ball. Sanju Samson regaining his form is a big boost to their batting order. Jofra Archer is leading the bowling attack well. Overall, Rajasthan is a clear favorite to get the two points from their last fixture in the league stage.
