Kolkata: In their first home match of the tenth season of Indian Premier League (IPL), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) won the toss and invited Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to bat first at the Eden Gardens on Thursday.

The KKR apparently decided not to bat first considering the due factor that is expected during the later half of the innings.

Punjab has recalled Ishant Sharma for T Natarajan, while KKR has included Colin de Grandhomme, Umesh Yadav and Piyush Chawla.

Ankit Rajpoot and Kuldeep Yadav have been rested for the match.
