Hello and welcome to Match 18 of the Indian T20 League between Rajasthan and Kolkata in Mumbai. Rajasthan would want Sanju Samson to come good today as his form has been of concern. They would also want Jos Buttler to click today. Yashasvi Jaiswal could get a chance instead of Manan Vohra, as Vohra has been struggling at the top. On the other hand, Kolkata would look to improve their bowling. They have leaked runs and conceded 200 runs twice in two matches. Stay tuned for the toss and the teams.
