RCB vs KKR Head-to-Head Statistics: The Sportsrush presents before you the Head-to-Head statistics for 17th match of IPL 2019.
The 17th match of the ongoing 12th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders at Bengaluru. With both teams coming on the back of individual losses, both of them would be eager to come back on winning ways.
Despite the above mentioned, the hosts in RCB would be desperate because they are the only team in IPL 2019 without a single victory. With the match being played on their home ground, there won’t be better conditions for them to end their four-match losing streak.

One common point between both the chases was one of the KKR opening batsman scoring a half-century in each of the match. While Sunil Narine scored a whirlwind 50 (19) in the first match, Chris Lynn scored a responsible 62* (52) in the second match. With Kolkata still opening the batting with Lynn and Narine, RCB would be looking to not let them get off to a start.

You need to change the batting position.
RCB has a great team.
But poor management.
Please atler your batting lineup.
And give chance to young guns#RCBvKKR
