And today the Bengaluru Stadium will witness playing the twi clubs which are highly rated on the papers, though KKR has proved themselves and RCB was not able to convert the chnaces into speculation
KKR is placed 3rd in the spot and with respect to this RCB has stagnanted their place in the last spot, though the team is very strong and comprises of names like Kohli, ABD, Gayle yet they were not able to perform their best
History: The RCB-KKR rivalry goes all the way back to the first game of the IPL in 2008. The teams were tied 9-9 in 18 contests at the end of last year before KKR opened up a one-point advantage with their win at home in April. There’s a little incentive for RCB to hit back straightaway in this return fixture.
What they said:
“Tomorrow is a 4 pm game, and we saw the game last night and we saw that Bangalore’s spinners did well, as did Axar Patel and Glenn Maxwell. From that point of view, spin bowling is going to play a big role and our spinners are looking forward to that challenge.” – Simon Katich, on the newly-laid wicket at the Chinnaswamy.
“It’s disheartening, I don’t know what to say about games like these anymore. Happening far too many times for our liking, something we are not able to change. Anything we do is not working out. The whole squad is playing in that zone. We are not able to get a big score.” – Virat Kohli can’t put a finger on what’s ailing his side this season.
