Kolkata has made it to the playoffs 6 times whereas Rajasthan has managed to reach the playoffs only 4 times.

When we look at their head-to-head performances, there is not much to differentiate between the two since they have won 10 matches apiece. It should be interesting to see if one team pips the other in both the league stage matches or share the honours just like last year.

Kolkata team owners surprised everyone when they bought Pat Cummins for a whopping price tag of ₹ 15.50 Crores and made some smart buys as well in the shape of Eoin Morgan and Tom Banton. Last season, Kolkata almost made it to the playoffs thanks to some outstanding performances by Andre Russell. This can very well be the last season for Dinesh Karthik as the captain so the pressure will be on him to deliver this time.

Rajasthan too was pretty active in the auctions, buying players like Robin Uthappa, Jaydev Unadkat, David Miller and Andrew Tye, amongst others. Batsmen like Jos Butler and David Miller will provide strength to the batting side. Under the leadership of Steve Smith, they will try to come up with better performances this time around.
