Team PreviewKolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders are currently struggling at the sixth spot in the Points Table with just two wins against their name. The Knight Riders have played seven matches till now in this tournament and are yet to find their right playing XI. Most of the KKR batsmen have struggled to perform consistently in IPL 2021. Moreover, the Eoin Morgan-led side has received massive criticism for its batting order as Sunil Narine has miserably failed in the middle-order.

RCB IPL 2021

Royal Challengers Bangalore are well-placed at the third position in the Ponts Table. The Virat Kohli-led side has gathered 10 points so far after playing seven games in the tournament. However, they are coming to this clash with a one-sided loss against Punjab Kings a couple of days ago at the same venue. But RCB emerged victorious last time these two teams met in IPL 2021. Also, looking at the current form, the Bangalore-based franchise has a slight edge.
