Virat Kohli will aim to bolster his IPL 2020 playoff chances when Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday. Watch KKR vs RCB Live.
Kolkata Knight Riders will go up against Royal Challengers Bangalore for the second time in the Indian Premier League on Wednesday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
RCB handed KKR an 82-run loss in the previous meeting between the two sides in IPL 2020. However, both teams come into this contest on the back of wins.
The winner of this contest will inch closer to the top of the points table and strengthen their chances for the IPL 2020 playoffs. Cricket fans can watch KKR vs RCB on live streaming and on TV.
RCB captain Virat Kohli looks in sublime form with five 40 plus scores in his last six matches, boasting of an average of over 100. AB de Villiers has also been in superman form.
While leggie Yuzvendra Chahal has scalped big wickets regularly for RCB, Navdeep Saini has capped the flow of runs with his economical bowling.
Although the handover of captaincy from Dinesh Karthik to Eoin Morgan hasn’t changed much for KKR, they were able to pull off a Super Over win against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match and will be aiming to build on that.
The two-time IPL champions will be also hoping their star all-rounder Andre Russell can get back to old ways, after a string of disappointing outings with the bat.
KKR’s struggling bowling unit, meanwhile, has received a shot in the arm with the arrival of pacer Lockie Ferguson. The Kiwi tearaway finished with three for 15 in his four overs against SRH.
Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore have met in the IPL on 25 occasions with KKR taking 14 wins and RCB 11.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore will be played on Wednesday, October 21. The IPL 2020 match will start live at 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
