Match Prediction

  • Kolkata Knight Riders are coming with a strong start, and a balanced team at this away match against RCB.
  • On the Other hand, not everything is going in favour of RCB. They have the biggest cricketing names (Kohli and ABD) with them, but the rest of the team is way below the powerhouse of KKR.
  • RCB had a poor start to the tournament, and again it looks like Kohli and ABD needs to put on a show to save this match.
  • KKR has a strong batting lineup, and everyone is on form from Narine, Lynn, Utthappa to Russell and Rana.
  • KKR bowling is also balanced with world-class spinners in Narine and Kuldeep Yadav.
  • RCB has home advantage. Players know this ground well, and Yuzvendra Chahal has given some of his best performances here. So, if he does the same and takes quick wickets, he can be a great threat to the visitors.
  • Overall, its advantage KKR and if Russell is in the mood, they can set a target over 200 on this small pitch and even chase 200 here.
