Team Watch for Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders LIVE in IPL 2021 LIVE
Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2021 LIVE:
Glenn Maxwell’s addition to the side has been a big addition to Virat Kohli’s RCB. The Australian big hitter has to some extent been able to solve Royal Challengers’ middle-over woes by keeping the run-rate in check. However, it is the powerplay overs where Bangalore would like to go harder. RCB will want him to go harder at the top during the powerplay overs.
Probable XI: Virat Kohli(c), Devdutt Padikkal, Shahbaz Ahmed, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers(w), Washington Sundar, Daniel Christian, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal
Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2021 LIVE:
Morgan has relied on Andre Russell to bowl the final few overs in both the games so far but AB de Villiers finds it easy to pick runs off the pacer, having scored at a strike rate of 221.74 over the years. It will be something to consider for Morgan while shuffling his bowlers around.
Probable XI: Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan(c), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik(w), Shakib Al Hasan/Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Harbhajan Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy
