The Royal Challengers Bangalore will battle it out against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on April 26 (Wednesday). RCB will be high on confidence after they defeated the then table toppers Rajasthan Royals at home on Sunday (April 23). Majority of the scoring for the Royal Challengers is being done by the big three, namely Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell. The middle order and lower middle order haven't shown much firepower till now and the management will be expecting them to fire soon. Their star pacer Mohammed Siraj has been in red hot form this season by having the highest dot ball percentage and also holds the purple cap.
The two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders, meanwhile, have had a forgettable outing so far in the tournament. They are struggling at the bottom part of the points table with just two wins in seven games. KKR bowlers were hammered in their last fixture, which was against CSK as the MS Dhoni-led side put up a huge total of 235 on the board. This innings consisted of 18 sixes, the most in an innings in IPL history. The opening combination has been an issue for the Knight Riders as they still haven’t found a stable pair at the top. They have tried ten different opening pairs since IPL 2022 but still haven’t found the ideal pair. KKR will be desperate to win this match if they want to remain in contention for the IPL playoffs as time is running out for them.
