KKR vs RCB 2019: The Sportsrush presents before you three intriguing player battles ahead of the 35th match of IPL 2019.
Kolkata Knight Riders and their confidence, both are going down the table at a rapid speed. After a great start, they now seem to be in freefall as they continue to lose every toss and every match subsequently. They need to get some wins before it is too late to make a comeback.

RCB would be wanting to take revenge in this rivalry week. They would need to put up a spirited performance in front of the Eden crowd to take 2 points home. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers would play crucial roles and might well be the difference between the 2 sides. They should look to be positive on the field and play as a team.
Kolkata vs Bangalore 3 Player Battles :
Sunil Narine vs AB de Villiers
Two of the best T20 players will face off against each other at the Eden gardens. Both Narine and AB de Villiers have always tried to dominate each other and come out on top. In the previous match between these 2 teams, Narine came out on top by taking his wicket but only after de Villiers played some good shots against him. It will be an exciting contest and we can’t wait to watch it unfold.
Kuldeep Yadav vs Virat Kohli
Kuldeep had expressed his desire of dismissing Virat Kohli in the IPL. Even though he has had an ordinary season so far, Kuldeep did manage to get the coveted wicket of Kohli the last time they clashed. Kohli would now want to give it back to the young chinaman and show him why he is the world’s best batsman. Kuldeep, though, would surely be wary and prepared to take on his Team India skipper once again. Who comes out on top this time? Your guess is as good as mine.
Dale Steyn vs Andre Russell
Dale Steyn, who is expected to play in this match, would be excited to get an opportunity to play in the IPL. However, his task may be cut out at the death if Andre gets going for KKR. He is known to spare no bowler and it will be interesting to see the strategy that the veteran pacer comes out with to tackle the Russell threat. If he can deliver those good old deadly yorkers, Russell might have a tough time at the crease.
