Two-time VIVO Indian Premier League Champions Kolkata Knight Riders will kickstart their 2019 campaign against last year's finalist Sunrisers Hyderabad at Eden Gardens on March 24, 2019.
The Indian Premier League has so far released the fixtures for the first 17 matches of the tournament, set to be played between March 23 and April 5, with Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore locking horns in the opening match on March 23.
The fixtures of the remaining matches will be made available once the Lok Sabha election dates are out.
