KKR vs RCB Match Prediction: The Sportsrush presents before you the Match Prediction of 34th match of IPL 2019.
The 35th match of the Indian Premier League will see the out of sorts Royal Challengers Bangalore take on low-on-confidence Kolkata Knight Riders at the iconic stadium, the Eden Gardens. The home team has fallen off a cliff by losing 3 matches in a row after a steep ascent in the initial phase of the tournament. RCB’s tournament is almost over with a very slim chance of qualifying now.
They would like to enjoy the game they love without thinking about the results.While the Kolkata Knight Riders have won 2 out of their 4 matches at home in this season, the Royal Challengers have won just 1 of their 4 away games. Interestingly, that 1 win is still their only win in this IPL.
KKR VS RCB -What numbers suggest?
KKR and RCB have played 24 matches against each other and the records show that the Knight Riders have managed to get the better of the Royal Challengers on 15 occasions. RCB have managed to win 9 times. The 2 teams have faced each other at the Mecca of Cricket, the Eden Gardens, in 9 matches out of which the Shah Rukh Khan owned team won 6 compared to RCB’s 3 wins.

The Knight Riders have a much better record if we look at past statistics. If we compare the average scores against each other, KKR leads here also with a score of 161 as opposed to RCB’s score of 148. RCB have to literally defy the odds to pull off a win here.
KKR VS RCB – Paper Value
On paper, RCB is one of the strongest team in the IPL. With the likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, RCB have some world class names. However, they have failed to play as a team. We often forget that cricket is a team sport and individuals never matter. KKR look a much more settled team on paper with many of the players chipping in with their contributions.
The Knight Riders need to arrest the slide and get back to winning ways and this might just be the match where they rediscover some form and get to 10 points considering their brilliant records against RCB and the fact that they play at home.
