IPL 2020: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders: Highest Run Scorers and Leading Wicket-Takers From Both Sides

Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday won their seventh game in IPL 2020. The Virat Kohli-led side currently stands at the second spot in the standings. Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 39th clash of IPL 2020 beat Kolkata Knight Riders by eight wickets.


Eoin Morgan, the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, won the toss and chose to bat first. When Kolkata came to bat, what happened was shocking. KKR batsmen were struggling against RCB bowlers. They started losing wickets too early and none of their batsmen, barring Morgan, could manage to spend some time on the crease. KKR‘s openers Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi scored just one run each before returning to the pavilion. Nitish Rana got out without even opening his account.
