We are here in Kolkata where the 2 most favorite sides of the IPL will clash against each other in a very crucial game. It’s the Kolkata Knight Riders who will take on the Royal Challengers
Bangalore. Kolkata is at no 2 in the points table whereas RCB is at no 6 in the points table. Match will be played at Eden Gardens Kolkata which is home ground of KKR. Match will be live at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time. Last time its KKR who beat RCB at their home in nail biting match.
Starting from the RCB side who remained inconsistent this season. They have won 5 while lost 6 and now need 3 out of 3 wins to go through the next round. Starting from the batting and the way their captain has played this season it is surely the best season for Virat Kohli. He so far has scored 3 Hundred in this season and is at the top of the list of highest run scorer. AB Devillers have supported him a lot and both have torn apart every bowling attack they have faced so far. The way they have played against Gujrat Lions in the last match it was a great innings to remember. KL Rahul has also supported the captain a lot and played a very important role in the batting of RCB. RCB batting is so far the best and have destroyed every bowling attack but their issue is their bowling where most of the bowlers haven’t bowled well and played the major role in defeats of RCB. They have tried almost all the bowlers but couldn’t got the result
which they want. But a positive for their bowlers is the way they bowled against Gujarat Lions and it will surely boost up their confidence against KKR. RCB also have to keep in mind that one
more loss can send them out of the tournament so they all have to play with much more responsibility and have to try their best if they want to go in the next round.
Coming towards the KKR side who so have a very good season and their batsmen and bowlers have done a great job. Openers were terrific at the start but now not playing very good cricket
and surely need to sort out their mistakes. The best thing in the last few matches for KKR is their middle order batsmen Yusuf Pathan form who has played a role of match winner and was
very destructive with the bat. Now coming towards their bowling which has done a good job in the last match against RPS but so far they are not performing very consistently. Andre Russel
and Sunil Narine has played a key role and their performance will be important in the next matches. Now RCB just need 1 more victory to go through next round as they have a better run
rate and don’t need much that is why they have less pressure as compare to RCB and they need to utilize this.
Match will be in Kolkata and it’s a flat track with not much grass and batsmen surely make full use of it. Weather is clear and dry for the match.
