Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Abu Dhabi Weather Forecast | The temperature is starting to cool down a little even in the United Arab Emirates. The maximum temperature will be hovering around 34 degrees Celsius but it will come down to around 30 degrees by the time the match gets underway around 730pm. The humidity, though, will make things harder for the players as it is going to be above average around 58 per cent throughout the day. A wind speed of around 14km/hr is also expected on match day.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Abu Dhabi Pitch Report
The pitch at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi is getting slower as the tournament progresses. In Monday (October 19) night’s game, MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings struggled to battle the slow nature of the track. No one from CSK was able to force the pace and they ended up with a below-par total of around 125 after batting first.
Even Rajasthan Royals’ batsmen struggled on the slow pitch, barring Jos Buttler, who looked in a league of his own. There should be early assistance for the pace bowlers with the humid conditions around but after that the spinners should be able to hold sway.
Any total above 160 will be hard to chase down in Abu Dhabi with quality spinners in both KKR and RCB ranks.
