IPL Live Score 2020, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, Latest Updates: IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 112/9, 20 overs: That’s that then. Terrible day out in the field for KKR as they lose by 82 runs against a RCB team who were firing on all cylinders. Clinical.
Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will clash with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in match 28 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Sharjah on the 12th of October.
Both, RCB and KKR have won 4 of their first 6 matches and would look to further consolidate their position with a victory.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
The biggest positive for RCB is the return to top form of Virat Kohli. He scored more than half of his team’s runs (90 off 52 deliveries) against CSK in Dubai. RCB would be hoping for a big score from Aaron Finch and AB de Villiers – both have failed in the last couple of matches.
Chris Morris was the star with the ball against CSK – RCB would hope he can continue from where he left in Dubai. Although Yuzvendra Chahal is the more famous name in the XI and has been their leading wicket-taker in IPL 2020, it is the off-spinner, Washington Sundar, who has been their unsung hero and the most restrictive with an economy rate of 4.88.
Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR have won their last two matches and will be confident of making it three in a row. Shubman Gill will remain the pivot at the top of the order – he is their highest run-scorer this season with 220 runs in 6 matches. He plays the role of the accumulator as his strike rate of 117.02 indicates.
KKR would want at least one of their two West Indian imports – Andre Russell and Sunil Narine – to come good. Both have had a horrendous tournament with the bat. Eoin Morgan also needs a significant score in the middle order.
The bowling unit has done a decent job for KKR in the tournament. Although they have not picked a heap of wickets, the likes of CV Varun, Russell and even Narine have been fairly restrictive. KKR would expect a big performance from their ace pacer – Pat Cummins, who has looked out of sorts in IPL 2020.
