RCB vs KKR – IPL 2021
How, where and when to watch Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders live match at 3.30 PM IST on April 18, 2021
Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are occupying the second position after two round of games, will have their sights set on a third win in a row when they face the Kolkata Knight Riders in in Chennai on Sunday. The addition of Glenn Maxwell has only bolstered the batting line-up that boasts the likes of AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. In the bowling department, though Yuzvendra Chahal has been wicketless so far, other players including Harshal Patel and Shahbaz Ahmed have stepped up to the challenge. For the Royal Challengers, Australian allrounder Daniel Sams is also available for selection after testing negative for Covid-19.
The Knight Riders, who are coming off a demoralising defeat to the Mumbai Indians, will be keen to get back into the winning way. It will be interesting to see how their key allrounder Andre Russel, who toiled against the left-arm spin of Krunal Pandya, faces Ahmed. That apart, Eoin Morgan’s side has shown promise batting at the top and also bowling at the death. It is the middle order that needs to fire.
