IPL 2018: Match 15, Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders – Toss Report
Here is what the captains said:
“We are going to bowl first. Just the fact that it looks a good surface and chase the total down.”
“As Dinesh said, the wicket is good so happy to bat first. We are playing the same team as the last team. A lot. It is a different experience captaining different players from around the world.”
Hosts Rajasthan Royals did not take long to open their account after suffering a crushing defeat in their opener. They beat Delhi Daredevils in a rain-curtailed game to bounce back strongly from the loss. In the following game, they thrashed Royal Challengers Bangalore to send out a statement of intent.

With both the teams having winning momentum, the upcoming clash promises to be an exciting affair.
