RCB vs KKR Match Preview
The Match 10th of the IPL 2021 is RCB vs KKR which is slated to be played on Sunday afternoon at Chepauk’s Stadium. After winning two big clashes RCB would come into the match more confidently & will look forward to making the winning count to three in tomorrow’s clash against KKR.
Spin is the main aspect that RCB could use against KKR as the latter has already shown their inability to face spin attack in their previous clash against Mumbai Indians in which KKR lost their four crucial wickets to leg spinner Rahul Chahar. Shahbaz Ahmed is also the pick of the bowlers for RCB who performed fantastically on a sticky pitch in Chennai against SRH. As he successfully got the ball turn & forced SRH batsman to lose their wickets.
The Chepauk pitch supports spin. Thus spinners of both teams could play a crucial role in deciding the result of Sunday’s first match of the doubleheaders. The match will be played at 3.30 pm so dew will not play a role in this match. On the contrary, the latter part of the match could see the ball swing more as the temperature falls.
Talking about the teams, RCB is currently on top after registering two wins in the league so far. They are heading ahead in the league with a fantastic bowling attack. Also, the addition of Glenn Maxwell in the middle order is doing wonders for the team as Maxwell is performing well along with RCB star batsman AB De Villiers. With a balanced side, RCB looks to sustain their winning record & keep their undefeated status intact.
However the other side KKR would have different plans for tomorrow’s clash. So far they have played 2 matches of which they have won one match & lose one match. In the previous clash, they faced a humiliating loss against Mumbai Indians. KKR will try to change their image by registering a win in tomorrow’s clash.
KKR has performed well in their previous two games. Nitish Rana & Andre Russell has done wonders with both bat & ball. Now the expectation to deliver is from shubman Gill & Eoin Morgan who is yet to make a mark in the IPL 2021.
KKR looks more balanced team & well-equipped from the two sides. However, RCB has emerged strongly by winning both the clashes which they have played. Virat Kohli & Co, have to perform to the fullest if they want to register three wins in a trot.
With two mighty teams meeting each other in a face-off with the aim of grabbing the top spot on the IPL 2021 Points Table, we could expect a blockbuster match on Sunday afternoon.
In view of performances & records, Royal Challengers Bangalore seems stronger than KKR. According to Cricketflicker prediction, Royal Challengers could win tomorrow’s match against KKR.
