The Kolkata Knight Riders didn’t have a great start to their 2023 IPL campaign and will hope to make amends at Eden Gardens. The Kolkata bowling attack was under the pump from ball one was Punjab Kings managed to post a massive total. Similarly, their batters had a few promising starts but failed to convert them into impactful performances.
Whereas the Royal Challengers Bangalore had a near-perfect start to their season after registering a mammoth eight-wicket win. The RCB pacers were on-song and reduced the MI top order to 46-6. But the team still has room for improvement in the death bowling department. Now talking about the batting, the likes of Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell starred to chase the total in 16.2 overs.
