RCB last five matches – L W W L W
Royal Challengers Bangalore received two positives in their previous match against Chennai Super Kings. Virat Kohli continued his good show and Chris Morris made a fine debut in RCB colours. Kohli scored 90 off just 52 and looked in ominous form whereas Morris scalped three wickets. RCB also came up with a collective team effort.
KKR last five matches: W W L W W.
KKR would consider themselves lucky after winning their previous match. The Dinesh Karthik-led was down and out against Kings XI Punjab but made a roaring comeback as the opposition succumbed to pressure. However, the form of Andre Russell and Sunil Narine will be a cause of concern for KKR.
Head to Head:
Total matches: 25, Won by KKR – 15, Won by RCB – 10.
Players to watch out for:
Virat Kohli has returned back to form and it is a big positive for RCB. AB de Villiers, Aaron Finch, Chris Morris and Yuzvendra Chahal will hold the key for RCB.
Shubman Gill will aim to score his runs at a better strike rate. Nitish Rana has impressed but KKR will want more from Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Eoin Morgan.
