How have the teams done so far?

After starting IPL 11 with a good win over Royal Challengers Bangalore, in which Sunil Narine smashed a 17-ball half-century, KKR have since slumped to back-to-back defeats.

Despite Andre Russell's stunning 88 from 36 balls, they were beaten in Chennai as Sam Billings hit a rapid fifty and on Saturday, they fell victim to Sunrisers Hyderabad's ever-impressive bowling unit. They'll be hoping the Eden Gardens faithful can roar them back to winning ways against Delhi.

Meanwhile, Delhi should be full of confidence after Jason Roy's blistering 91 not out off 53 balls led them to their first win in this year's competition, against defending champions Mumbai Indians on Saturday.

Roy was brought into the team after the Daredevils had lost their first two. Rajasthan Royals got the better of them in a rain-hit contest after KL Rahul IPL-record fifty had done for them against Kings XI Punjab.

Roy deservedly took the headlines for his part in Delhi's win over Mumbai but he was ably assisted for part of that chase Rishabh Pant. The 20-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman came in at No 3 and showed why there is so much excitement about his potential by thumping 47 off 25 balls.

Which England players could feature?

After his match-winning innings over the weekend, Roy is sure to keep his place at the top of the order for Delhi. After his late call-up Liam Plunkett is still waiting for his IPL debut but could join Roy in the Delhi XI in Kolkata.

Tom Curran is the only Englishman in the Kolkata squad, he played in the defeat to Chennai and could be brought back into the side after being left out for the loss to the Sunrisers.

Who's in the Sky Sports Cricket studio?

With potentially three Englishmen in action, England assistant coach Paul Farbrace will be a keen observer. He joins Matt Floyd in the studio, as does Somerset stalwart and former England opener Marcus Trescothick.

Action has already started on the Sky Sports Cricket channel, with the IPL season underway. Sky Sports will continue to show every game, so fans from all over can enjoy the best of Indian cricket.
