KKR vs RCB Head to Head: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the 31st match of IPL 2021.
The 31st match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Abu Dhabi tomorrow. KKR vs RCB clash was the first match to be cancelled due to the second wave of COVID-19 in India earlier this year.
Given their most recent record (four losses in five outings) against Virat Kohli’s men, Eoin Morgan’s men will have to put on display a much-improved performance at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.
While Royal Challengers are way ahead of Knight Riders on the points table, a four-month gap has taken the advantage of current form from both the teams. A substantial challenge in front of Bangalore is the fact that they have had to make five changes to their squad and the same might affect their combination especially in the first two matches or so of the second phase.
