Current form – Last five matches for KKR – L L L W L
Kolkata Knight Riders haven’t been able to tick the right boxes in the batting department. The KKR batsmen have lacked the intent and they have adopted a sedate approach. The batters need to be more aggressive and take the attack to the opposition. They have been inconsistent and we might see some changes to the final XI.
Last five matches for RCB – W W L W L
Royal Challengers Bangalore have done a good job but they will be disappointed with their batting display against PBKS. They were not able to take the game head on and couldn’t execute their skills with the bat. RCB might also need to rejig their batting order as either AB de Villiers or Glenn Maxwell can bat at one down.
Head to Head – Overall matches – 28, Won by KKR – 15, Won by RCB – 13
RCB had won the previous match of the season by 38 runs against KKR.
Players to back – Rahul Tripathi has looked in good form and he can be promoted to the opening slot. Pat Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy will hold the key with the ball.
Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell will play a crucial role with the bat. Mohammed Siraj has done a fine job whereas Harshal Patel has veered off the track as he has been a bit expensive.
Match Prediction – RCB will have their wood on KKR given the current form and team balance.
