IPL is all set to restart with all teams gearing up for the mega event. RCB vs KKR match was the last game to reschedule in the first phase and they are back in action in this match. KKR team has only one change with Tim Southee replacing Pat Cummins in their squad. While RCB team spot a new look with almost 5 replacements. Both teams will have a fresh start in this match as their positions in the table do not indicate their recent form and momentum. We expect both teams to come charging at each other in this game.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

Skipper Eoin Morgan will be under huge pressure as every loss might push them near to the elimination. They have a rich vein of resources with the likes of Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Shubamn Gill, and Dinesh Karthik in their batting line-up with West Indian all-rounder duo of Andre Russell and Sunil Narine.

Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, and Lockie Ferguson will pose a serious threat for the opposition with their abilities to bowl at over 140+ kmph consistently. Mystery spin duo of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy is expected to spin a web over the batsmen in this match.

Top players to bet on:

Andre Russell – Russell is one of the show stoppers who can make the world turn around with his big-hitting ability and he can be a handy bowler too. We expect him to set the match on fire with his all-around performances.

Varun Chakravarthy – Varun has been one of the latest sensations in spin departments in Indian cricket and we expect him to make a big role in the helpful UAE pitches.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (capt), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy

Kolkata Knight Riders Actual Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna, Lockie Ferguson, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Dinesh Karthik, RA Tripathi

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Skipper Virat Kohli has been marred by the off-field noises recently and we expect him to make a big comeback this season. Devdutt Padikkal, AB De Villiers, and Glenn Maxwell pose one of the most dangerous batting line-ups alongside Virat Kohli. Patidar and Shahbaz Ahmed might be their other two players in the top-6.

The pace trio of Mohammed Siraj, Kyle Jamieson, and Harshal Patel was exceptional in the first half and they might continue their good work in this match too. Yuzi Chahal will be joined by Wanidu Hasaranga in this match with all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed for company. They have a good mix of pace and spin bowlers.

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell made a huge difference with his attacking style of play and his ability to take on the spinners will be a big boost in the middle overs. Maxwell can be dangerous once he gets set and we expect him to make a huge score in this match.

Wanidu Hasaranga – Hasaranga has been one of the big names to watch out for this season. He is just playing his IPL debut match but has already made a huge name for himself in the international circuit.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing XI:

Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c), Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers (wk), Shahbaz Ahmed, Kyle Jamieson, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Royal Challengers Bangalore Actual Playing XI:

Mohammed Siraj, Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikal, KS Bharat, YS Chahal, AB de Villiers, Wanidu Hasaranga, Sachin Baby, Glenn Maxwell, Harshal Patel, Kyle Jamieson

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi will have a hot and humid weather with very less to no chances for rain. We expect cricket to take the center stage with no external distractions in this match.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi pitch is expected to be slightly fresh as this is the first match to play on it and it also has bigger boundaries. The ball might come onto the bat nicely and spinners will get assistance in the track. We expect the average scores to be around 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

WIN the toss, BOWL First

Both teams will be looking to chase the target as no score is safe in T20 matches and both captains will look to put the opposition to bat on this track.

Both teams have equally potent batting and bowling attacks with good experience in the pace and spin attacks. RCB easily pips KKR in terms of the firepower and quality in the batting line-up and KKR will rely on their middle order of DK, Russell, and Morgan to score crucial runs in crunch situations. KKR has a lack of experience in their top-3 and it might haunt in setting up a good start for them.

We expect RCB to win this match as they have quality batsmen who can take on any bowlers on their day.
