Two franchises that probably boast of the largest fan bases in the nation take on each other in a direct battle between bat and ball. KKR have always relied on their bowling attcack to restrict oppositions to paltry scores in the first innings, or to choke the chasing team during the second innings. RCB on the other hand have gone the batting way. The two best batsmen in the world, combined with a T20 legend, RCB back themselves to outscore the opponent(something that hasn’t quite worked for them over the seasons).
Gautam Gambhir will be looking to strangle the RCB batting line up with slow bowling. RCB on other hand will be buoyed by the return of ABD and will feel confident of Virat-ABD dealing with any and every challenge thrown their way by the shrewd Gambhir. Badree too could be drafted into the XI.
KKR have experimented with Narine at the top of the order and it was worked wonders for them until now. His dominance at the top of the order has made KKR fans forget all about Lynn’s absence, something that you couldn’t have imagined after Lynn suffered that horrific shoulder injury.
The RCB batting line up needs to fire today, that is their only chance of breaching KKRs fortress. The Eden could be in for a Virat-ABD treat today.
Let’s get to business now!
