KKR vs RCB Live Prediction

2024-04-21 15:38:40

KKR to score over 97.5 runs in 10 overs @ 1.90 (1XBET)

KKR are once again off to a quick fire start, courtesy of Sunil Narine and Phil Salt's aggressive batting and poor bowling from RCB. The way both batsman are striking, we back them to score over 97.5 runs at the end of 10 overs.

2024-04-21 15:31:44

KKR to score over 57.5 runs in first six overs @ 1.80 (1XBET)

Kolkata Knight Riders have been dominant in the powerplay overs this season and during the pitch report the experts suggested it will is a good batting surface. Given the form of both the teams we back KKR to score over 57.5 runs in powerplay overs.

After taking part and losing in a game which saw 549 runs scored in their last outing, RCB come into this fixture still scratching their heads whilst trying to find a way to turn defeats into wins!

The RCB bowling attack will be relieved to be against a different batting unit than Sunrisers Hyderabad but the truth is that KKR have plenty of batting depth as well as an opening partnership of Phil Salt and Sunil Narine who are both flying in this competition.

KKR have lost against strong sides in two of their last three but they will surely fancy their chances against the bottom placed team in this game.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

The key player for KKR so far this season has undoubtedly been Sunil Narine and the 35 year old from Trinidad & Tobago has been showing his younger charges how to both bat and bowl during this campaign. He comes into this match still wondering quite how he ended up on the losing side against Rajasthan Royals after he hit 109 runs and took 2/30 with the ball!

There is good news for KKR ahead of this clash with Rinku Singh, their star 'finisher' in the middle order back to full fitness. He has only played as a batting impact sub so far in the tournament but he is expected to be able to showcase his fine fielding skills in this game as well.

With the ball, Harshit Rana has been bowling fast and will be looking to bounce back from a rare wicketless appearance last time out.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Phil Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Angkirsh Raghuvanshi, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Varun Chakravarthy, Harshit Rana

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Preview

It's a familiar complaint from RCB fans and a regular assessment from cricket journalists, but the facts are that Faf du Plessis' side do not have enough bowling depth to compete at the top end of the IPL!

There is no doubting that they have some impressive bowlers in Reece Topley and Lockie Ferguson, the latter who took two wickets on his first IPL appearance of the season last time out. But in this new era where batters have no fear and know no limits, impressive bowlers are not enough.

Bottom of the table and fast running out of games to turn their season around, RCB will once again be reliant on their opening batters and keeper, Dinesh Karthik, to try and take them to victory.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Predicted Playing XI:

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Saurav Chauhan, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Reece Topley, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal

Weather Conditions

It is going to be very hot in Kolkata on Sunday afternoon and the 15:00 local time start will mean the temperature is likely to be only just under 40 degrees for much of the first half of the game. No rain is forecast and there will be little in the way of a breeze to cool down the players throughout the match.

KKR vs RCB Pitch Report

There were 447 runs at Eden Gardens in the last IPL match here so supporters at the ground should bring a tin hat and watchers on TV should prepare for many maximums! It will be a quick pitch with plenty of bounce and carry.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams fielding first have a much stronger record at Eden Gardens and, even though it will be very hot in the field during the first innings, we predict that both captains will want to bowl first in this match.

Although KKR have lost to Rajasthan Royals and CSK over their last three matches, they have still been playing good cricket and are enjoying a strong 2024 IPL. Sadly, the same can't be said about RCB who are in serious trouble and propping up the table. Our prediction is for another victory for KKR on Sunday afternoon.

We are backing Kolkata Knight Riders to win!
