  • Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis prefer to accumulate runs through grounded shots rather than relying on big sixes. In their recent match against PBKS, Kohli showcased his finesse with 11 well-timed fours. The total count of fours for RCB is expected to exceed 15.5.
  • Kohli’s impressive 77-run innings against PBKS demonstrated his mastery in shot execution and control throughout the game. As the leading batsman for RCB, Kohli remains a reliable choice. Meanwhile, Phil Salt of KKR displayed his prowess with a half-century against SRH. Ranked second in T20I batting, Salt possesses the rare blend of destructive power and consistency, making him a prime candidate for top scorer in KKR.
  • Chinnaswamy Stadium’s compact dimensions often witness a flurry of sixes, with statistics from the previous season indicating an average of one six every two overs. Given the caliber of batsmen participating, Bengaluru may witness an abundance of sixes. It’s advisable to wager on the total number of sixes surpassing 15.5 in the match.

Team NEWS: 

RCB Team News: 

Alzarri Joseph faced significant challenges during the clash against PBKS, conceding plenty of runs. Despite this, he remains aware that Lockie Ferguson is poised as an alternative. However, RCB is inclined to persist with Joseph for several more games due to his left-arm angle, which adds diversity to their bowling lineup. While RCB can adapt their strategy based on game dynamics, maintaining an unchanged playing XI is advisable. 

KKR Team News: 

KKR faced a decision between Phil Salt and Rahmanullah Gurbaz for their overseas opener, ultimately selecting Salt, who justified their decision with an impressive half-century. Gurbaz is expected to remain on the bench for the time being. Narine, Russell, and Starc are set as KKR’s overseas players, with no anticipated alterations to the playing XI.

  • Rajat Patidar and Glenn Maxwell are assigned to manage the middle-order batting.
  • Faf du Plessis will serve as the captain for RCB, bringing both leadership and batting prowess to the team.
  • Dinesh Karthik will undertake wicket-keeping duties for RCB.
  • Glenn Maxwell and Mayank Dagar will be responsible for the spin bowling department.

KKR Team Info –

Winning Chances: 

Backing RCB for the win seems reasonable, especially after their victory against PBKS in the previous match. Virat Kohli appears to be in fine form, and Dinesh Karthik’s performance in the lower order has been noteworthy. With a strong batting lineup comprising Faf, Maxwell, and Green, RCB appears well-equipped. Although KKR boasts a formidable team on paper, playing in Bengaluru amidst fervent support for RCB could potentially overwhelm them. While the match is expected to be closely contested, RCB is favored to emerge victorious.

Kolkata Knight Riders have a 32% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Royal Challengers Bengaluru 

Virat Kohli 

Virat Kohli showcased impeccable form in the match against PBKS, delivering a masterful exhibition of classical strokeplay. Kohli’s innings, which included 11 fours and 2 sixes, saw him compile a magnificent 77 runs off just 49 balls, marking one of the most aesthetically pleasing performances in recent IPL memory.

Cameron Green 

The southpaw opener reached a score of 24 before being dismissed against Lucknow Super Giants, displaying a level of clean hitting reminiscent of his performances during the Test series against England.

Glenn Maxwell 

Maxwell has been in exceptional form lately, shining brightly in both the IPL and the T20I series against India and West Indies. Although the IPL 2024 hasn’t started as favorably for him, with setbacks in the initial two games, he’s anticipated to find his rhythm soon. Additionally, Maxwell holds the distinction of being RCB’s most seasoned spinner, indicating that he will be pivotal in contributing with the ball as well.

Mohammed Siraj 

Siraj has assumed the role of spearheading the RCB pace attack for several seasons, and it must be acknowledged that he has performed quite satisfactorily. There are considerable expectations resting on the shoulders of this premier pacer. His recent performance against PBKS was noteworthy, as he claimed two wickets while conceding only 26 runs.

Kolkata Knight Riders 

Phil Salt 

KKR opted for a daring decision by selecting Salt over Gurbaz, and it paid off as Salt delivered a stellar innings, scoring 54 runs off 40 balls. With a solid reputation as the second-ranked batter in the T20I rankings and a track record of consistency over the years, Salt now has a prime opportunity to make a significant impact in the IPL.

Rinku Singh 

Rinku Singh emerged as a standout performer in IPL 2023, which subsequently led to his debut for the Indian team. He capitalized on the opportunity, showcasing outstanding performances on the international stage. With immense batting potential, Rinku Singh has proven to be a reliable asset for KKR, consistently putting the team in a favorable position whenever he’s at the crease.

Andre Russell 

Russell displayed his formidable strength in the opening match, embarking on a barrage of sixes by striking seven in a quickfire 64 off 25 balls. His innings proved to be decisive in the outcome of the match. Moreover, he also made an impact with the ball, securing two wickets while conceding 25 runs. While Russell’s performances may not always be consistent, on his best days, he possesses the ability to single-handedly win matches for his team.

Sunil Narine 

Although the champion bowler is advancing in age, his performances continue to be pivotal game-changers for the team. Narine’s four overs remain immensely valuable for KKR, often proving to be worth their weight in gold.

Team Forms: 

RCB Team Form: 

RCB has been marked by inconsistency in the IPL, with their failure to qualify for the playoffs last year underscoring this trend.

KKR Team Form: 

KKR’s performance in the IPL has been below expectations. Despite possessing a strong squad, they have been unable to secure a title in almost a decade. Nevertheless, heading into IPL 2024, they have a well-established team, and they are optimistic for a turnaround in their fortunes.
