Kolkata vs Bangalore on October 21


Royal Challengers Bangalore, unlike the previous seasons, have performed well in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League. The team, captained by Virat Kohli, is currently placed third in the points table with 12 points from nine games. In their previous game, they beat Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Their next match is against the Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday, October 21 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. In their previous meeting, RCB thrashed the Knights by 82 runs. But going into the next game, KKR may have the upper hand for their better knowledge of the conditions in Abu Dhabi. In the last game, Eoin Morgan and Co beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Super Over.

Best economical pick Shubman Gill will remain the batsman to watch out for in the KKR unit. The young batsman played a match-winning knock in the last match against SunRisers Hyderabad. He can provide the much needed composure to the unit. If Gill gets going, KKR can get to a good start as he can lay the foundation for the side.

Top captains & vice captains – Virat Kohli scored only 18 runs in the first three games at a dismal average of 18. However, ever since then, the RCB captain has notched 329 runs from six matches at an average of 109.67. The 31-year-old, overall, has 347 runs at an average and strike-rate of 57.83 and 122.57 respectively. In his previous game against the Knights, Virat strained a little and he would want to improve on it. AB de Villiers breathtaking 22-ball 53* was the main reason behind RCB chasing down 178 in the last game against RR. With 35 runs needed off the last 12 balls, The champion batsman smashed Jaydev Unadkat for three consecutive sixes before sealing the deal with yet another maximum in the last over. The last time AB played against KKR, he murdered their bowling, and his 33-ball 73- an innings which included 5 fours and 6 sixes- ultimately proved to be the difference in the end between the two sides.

Smart pick – Lockie Ferguson made a thunderous start to his IPL campaign. The New Zealand speedster ripped through the SRH batting unit, both in the mandatory 20 overs and Super Over. His performance also earned him the Man of the Match award. It won’t be wrong in saying that the speedster will be at the peak of his powers without a doubt.

Cautious Pick – Isuru Udana had a forgettable game against Rajasthan Royals as he was taken to the cleaners by the likes of Smith. Udana gave away of 43 runs in his 3 overs. He might be a risky pick for this match.


My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), AB de Villiers (Vice-Captain), Subhman Gill, Lockie Ferguson, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar, Chris Morris, Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, Aaron Finch, Rahul Tripathi
