Prediction for Kolkata Knight Riders vs. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s 36th Match, IPL 2023

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will have the opportunity to compete for the top position in the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) table when they play against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Match 36 at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday. In preparation for this crucial game, let us delve into the forecasted playing XI, team news, weather report, head-to-head record, and more

RCB has emerged victorious in five out of their last eight meetings against KKR. However, KKR comes into the match having lost four consecutive games and are low on confidence. Their bowlers have conceded more than 200 runs in three of their seven games this season. On the other hand, RCB’s openers, Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli, have accumulated almost 700 runs between them.

It is predicted that RCB will win the game as the Knight Riders have lost three out of the four away matches they have played this season. Additionally, two of KKR’s significant players, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell, have not been in good form so far this season. After losing two of their first three matches, RCB bounced back strongly, winning two consecutive games, with their most recent triumph being against the Rajasthan Royals by seven runs, reaching eight points on the table. With seven matches played so far, RCB is presently in the middle of the table. Conversely, KKR has lost four consecutive games, with their most recent defeat coming against the Chennai Super Kings by 49 runs. Having played seven matches so far, KKR has only won two games and is presently placed among the bottom three teams with four points.

Toss: To Bowl

According to what we have seen, it seems that the pacers will have the upper hand during the game due to the cloudy weather, but as the game goes on and the lights come on, it will be simpler for the batters to score runs. Therefore, it’s likely that both team captains will choose to bowl first.


The M.Chinnaswamy Stadium’s short boundaries and speedy outfield have always proven advantageous for batsmen. Nevertheless, because of Wednesday’s anticipated weather, quick bowlers might benefit a little. Despite Chinnaswamy Stadium’s excellent batting surface, this season has already featured some high-scoring games. The winning score is 200, with the side batting first averaging 195.8. The pitch, though, can sluggish down, resulting in lower average scores.


The weather is likely to remain cloudy with chances of slight showers.

We think that the Royal Challengers Bangalore are the favorites to win based on both teams’ recent results. The Kolkata Knight Riders are having trouble in every area, but their bowling has been especially subpar. The Royal Challengers, in comparison, have a solid batting lineup with Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli both in excellent form, as well as a few effective bowlers. We would urge bettors to hedge their bets through in-play betting even though the match may end up being closer than anticipated due to the circumstances. As a result, we think Royal Challengers Bangalore will triumph.
