The match 36 of the Indian Premier League 2023 will have the hosts Royal Challengers Bangalore welcome the visitors Kolkata Knight Riders at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. RCB are coming into this fixture on the back of two good wins against PBKS and RR under the leadership of stand-in captain Virat Kohli. Meanwhile, KKR have lost their last four IPL matches comprehensively against SRH, MI, DC, and CSK. With such a contrasting run of results, the Royal Challengers will fancy their chances of defeating the Knight Riders comprehensively at home in their upcoming fixture.
Both RCB and KKR have won 3 tosses out of 7 in the IPL 2023, while in their fixture earlier in the season, Royal Challengers did get the toss right against Knight Riders in Kolkata. So, the hosts will have a slightly better chance at getting the toss fall in their favour in comparison to their opponents.
Kolkata Knight Riders are 18-14 ahead on head-to-head record against Royal Challengers Bangalore. But in the 2023 IPL season, RCB are currently in far better form than KKR, even though they lost to the same opponents away from home earlier in the season. That’s why Royal Challengers will definitely have the advantage over Knight Riders in their upcoming contest as far as the win possibility goes.
Predicted Powerplay score and Average first innings score
The average first innings score at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in the IPL is 170. But during the 2023 season, it has risen to 195, owing to better batting pitches. Hence, the first innings score for the KKR vs RCB fixture can get up to 185-190 range, while the powerplay score can reach 54-58.
