Pre-match: Both the teams have played a game each in India since arriving from the UAE leg. Rajasthan extended Delhi's losing run with a 7-wicket win, while KKR's woes failed to end against a rampaging Chennai Super Kings who hammered Gautam Gambhir's men by 34 runs.
Rajasthan's victory extended their winning run to three games and looking at Kolkata's problems, it won't be a surprise if Rajasthan go on to register their fourth consecutive victory on Monday.
In striking contrast to Rajasthan's graph this season, Kolkata have lost three games in a row now, thanks to the sorry performances of their batsmen.
