KKR or RCB who will outdo other?
For Knight Riders, things have become worse with their performance depleting with every passing match. They are facing new & tough challenges each time they come on the field to play. A lackluster top order, lack of intent with both bat & ball, middle-order failing to perform, inability to score at death overs & questionable on-field tactics. These are some problems which KKR is facing b every match they play. Facing on-slaught by AB De Villiers & Maxwell, KKR has underperformed with the bat & fell short in a chase of 205 against RCB. KKR is lying at the undesirable sixth spot on the Points table.
Meanwhile, RCB will come into tomorrow’s clash by facing a humiliating loss of 34 runs by Punjab Kings in their previous clash. It was only because of Harshal Patel’s late counter-attack that RCB got saved from a denting loss. 96/7 in 16 overs in the chase of 180, Harshal Patel’s 13 balls 31 runs saved them from a poor NRR loss. However, in terms of performance & records, RCB looks dominant over KKR.
