Pitch Report:

The Eden Gardens in Kolkata has often produced incredible batting tracks where teams can post massive totals. The short dimensions of the ground also assist the batters. But often the pitches in Kolkata also have something for spinners, creating an entertaining affair for the fans. 

Team Analysis:

Kolkata Knight Riders

Under Nitish Rana, the two-time IPL champs haven't had an ideal start to their 2023 IPL campaign. KKR underperformed in each department and will want to improve against Bangalore. The fast bowlers went on to concede a lot of runs while the spinners were positive for the side. While the batting unit had a poor performance and must improve at Eden Gardens.
