Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru


After participating in and losing a game that saw 549 runs scored in their previous excursion, RCB enters this match still scratching their heads, hoping to discover a solution to transform failures into victories!

The RCB bowling attack will be relieved to face a different batting team than Sunrisers Hyderabad, but the reality is that KKR have plenty of batting depth with an opening duo of Phil Salt and Sunil Narine, both of whom are soaring in this season.

KKR has fallen to good sides in two of their past three games, but they will undoubtedly like their chances against the bottom-placed club in this matchup.

Teams Preview –

Kolkata Knight Riders :

Sunil Narine, a 35-year-old from Trinidad and Tobago, has been the team’s most important player thus far this season. He has been teaching his younger teammates how to bat and bowl. He’s still perplexed at how he lost to the Rajasthan Royals despite hitting 109 runs and taking 2/30 with the ball going into this game!

Before this match, KKR had reason to celebrate as their star middle order “finisher,” Rinku Singh, is back to full fitness. Although he has only participated in the competition as a batting impact sub, he should be able to demonstrate his excellent fielding abilities in this match.

Kolkata Knight Riders Playing XI:

Phil Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Angkirsh Raghuvanshi, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Varun Chakravarthy, Harshit Rana

Royal Challengers Bengaluru :

Cricket media and RCB supporters frequently express their dissatisfaction, but the truth is that Faf du Plessis’ team lacks the depth in their bowling unit to contend at the highest levels of the IPL!

Without a doubt, they have some excellent bowlers in Reece Topley and Lockie Ferguson, the latter of whom claimed two wickets in his most recent IPL game. But good bowlers are insufficient in this new era where hitters know no bounds and no fear.

With only a few games remaining to salvage their season and a low standing in the standings, RCB will once more depend on its opening batsmen and keeper, Dinesh Karthik, try to lead them to victory.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Playing XI:

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Saurav Chauhan, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Reece Topley, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal

Pitch & Weather Conditions:

Weather :

Sunday afternoon is anticipated to be quite hot in Kolkata, and since the game is scheduled to begin at 15:00 local time, the temperature will probably be just under 40 degrees for the majority of the first half. There won’t be much of a wind to keep the players cool during the game, and no rain is predicted.

Pitch Report:

The previous IPL game at Eden Gardens had 447 runs, so spectators should pack a tin hat, and TV viewers should get ready for a tonne of maximums! The pitch will be fast and have lots of carry and bounce.

Toss: To Ball

Even though it will be quite hot on the field during the first innings, teams that field first have a far better record at Eden Gardens. Based on this, we anticipate that both captains will prefer to bowl first in this match.
