RCB vs KKR Match Preview, Two Batting Powerhouses will Meet At Sharjah .
Rcb – Their Best Xi
Kohli at the last match’s toss said that it’s the best eleven RCB has put on the ground this season. And the captain’s faith paid off. RCB looks a very settled unit now, with Chris Morris in the mix and Dube playing the finisher’s role quite aptly.
King Is Back
King Kohli is back to his best. After a string of low scores to start the season, Kohli has been RCB’s highest scorer in the last 3 matches. The biggest challenge for KKR’s bowling will be to pierce through Kohli and ABD.
A Bowling Attack Kohli Wanted
RCB’s bowling attack can no longer be shrugged aside. It’s one of the best of this season. With Sundar tightening the screw in the powerplay, Saini and Chahal doing the middle overs duty, and Udana and Morris at the death, RCB can win a match on the back of their bowlers now.
KKR – Defending It Well
KKR has shown incredible ability to handle pressure while defending. They squeezed Chennai,defending 78 off the last 10 overs. And they didn’t allow Punjab to score 48 off the last 5 overs.
Russell got injured in the last match when he was trying to save a boundary. He went off the field for a few overs, came back onto the field, only to go off again. He didn’t bowl in the last match either. Will he be fit enough to feature in tomorrow’s clash? Only time will tell.
What KKR has done good this year is that they’ve managed to win without Russell’s contribution. They can certainly afford to rest Russell for a couple games to have him ready to go in the business end of the tournament.
