KKR VS RCB Match Details, Predictions


Exciting news for cricket fans! The Royal Challengers Bangalore started off their season with a bang as they emerged victorious in their first match against the Mumbai Indians, thanks to the top-notch batting skills of skipper Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli who scored 73 and 82 runs respectively. Adding to their confidence is the fact that RCB has won 5 of their last 7 games against KKR. But hold on, KKR’s Andre Russell seems to have a bone to pick with RCB as his strike rate against them in the last 6 games is over 200! Will RCB be able to keep this powerhouse in check?

However, RCB has been hit by a major setback with the injury of Reece Topley who dislocated his shoulder while fielding and will be unavailable for their upcoming match against KKR. Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, are looking to bounce back after their loss to Punjab Kings in their first match. With the absence of their regular skipper Shreyas Iyer, they need to strengthen their middle order to fill the gap.

As KKR returns to the Eden Gardens after a long time, they will be hoping to revive their campaign with the support of their loyal crowd. But they are up against the formidable duo of Faf and Kohli, who are ready to take on KKR’s challenge. Will the Knights be able to withstand the wrath of RCB’s batting powerhouse? It’s time to sit back and watch the drama unfold!

Toss: To Bat

In 12 T20Is, the team batting second has won the game on 7 occasions, while the team batting first has won 5 times. But the recent games have shown team batting first has a better advantage. RCB had won the eliminator of the last season on the same ground. They had defended a target of 208 runs after an impressive century from Rajat Patidar. The team winning the toss should bat first.


In Eden Gardens Stadium, a place known for big scores, expect a high-scoring contest. The batters enjoy playing on the fast pitch, and the outfield provides excellent value for shots. Later, when the surface ages, even spinners may benefit. Big scores are possible with modest boundaries. Bowlers beware; Thursday’s game is set to feature a run-fest as the ball is predicted to come neatly onto the bat.
