KKR and RCB are on 8 points in the table and winner will justifiably take a crucial edge as we delve into the second and final phase of the group stage in IPL 2020.
Previous match, the RCB gained the biggest positive with captain Virat Kohli returning to his run-scoring prowess.
He scored an unbeaten 90 in the first innings. He saw off the RCB innings after other batsmen in the top-order failed to step up.
The biggest concern will be the availability of big-hitter Andre Russel. He hurt his knee when he dived into the advertisement boards after missing a catch on Saturday.
Skipper Dinesh Karthik did not reveal the extent of the injury after the match against KXIP. “Whenever Russell gets injured, you know it is hard. He is a very special player, he is a very special person. We need to go and look at him,” he said.
KKR Playing XI:
Dinesh Karthik (c/wk), Eoin Morgan, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Pat Cummins, Prasidh Krishna,Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi.
RCB Playing XI:
Virat Kohli (captain), AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Aaron Finch, Chris Morris, Mohammed Siraj, Devdutt Padikkal, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Isuru Udana, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar.
