RPS arguably produced one of their best performances in the previous match, after they pulled off a thrilling three-run win over MI, courtesy a man-of-the-mach worthy performance form the season's top buy Ben Stokes.
Kolkata, who have an inspiring captain in the form of Gautam Gambhir at the helm, have been pretty consistent with their performances thus far and will be slight favourites heading into the tie.
