Kolkata finished three points ahead of second-placed Hyderabad in this season's IPL table and the Knight Riders also hold a significant edge in terms of the head-to-head record.

They have won 17 of the 26 games between the franchises including seven of the last nine.

This term's league meeting was a high-scoring thriller at Eden Gardens, where hosts Kolkata clinched a four-run win with all-rounder Andre Russell scoring 64 not out off 25 balls and taking 2-25.

Both teams have shown massive improvement this season as the Knight Riders had reached the play-offs only once in the last five years - the Sunrisers finished eighth, eighth and 10th in the 10-team league in their last three campaigns.
