Ground News

Bengaluru pitch looks to be back to its previous self. High scores are coming constantly. Except 217 the three other scores of 205, 174 and 155 were easily chased down.

Final Thoughts

Excluding any late injury addition, batting units of both sides should remain the same. There may be a lot of changes in the bowling mix though. Kohli’s form is of slight concern. He is getting starts but not converting them big. This is costing RCB a good 10-15 runs. Quinton de Kock finding his form with a 50 in the previous game will boost the confidence of the batting unit. The worry with their batting is, only 4 batsman have made an impact half-way through the tournament. de Kock, de Villiers, Kohli and Mandeep have ade some runs. Others haven’t put their hands up yet. Let us not talk about their bowling as there is nothing to say much positively about.

KKR too have similar worries. Their batting depends a lot on their middle order trio of Rana, Karthik and Russell. Lynn coming to form will boost their fortunes. Their bowlers seem to be tired as it’s mostly unchanged throughout the 7 games they’ve played. With Russell won’t be risking his injury bowling, they’re short of 6th bowling option.

13 chasing wins in 20 head to head games. 3 wins in 4 games for chasing teams in Chinnaswamy. RCB have never won a game batting 1st against KKR.

CricBuzz Preview

A lot has transpired in the three weeks since Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore began their IPL 2018 campaigns against each other. KKR’s once-inspiring captain with two title victories to his name has had to relinquish his captaincy mid-way through a poor campaign, while several of RCB’s exes have flourished in newer pastures. Since that opening fixture, however, RCB and KKR’s rides have been very bumpy, and converge at a point from where a defeat will leave them with a lot of ground to cover in the race for the play-offs.

Both sides have won just two games each since they last met, with KKR marginally better-placed at fourth spot, but may just lose it to immediate competitors Rajasthan Royals even before Sunday’s fixture begins. For sixth-placed RCB, resurrection of the season has got to begin from this fixture, for them to stay in line with rest of the contenders for the top four spots. Else, they’ll be left to emulate their 2015 and 2016 performances, the failure of which, will give them a familiar and underwhelming combination of a bottom-of-the-table scramble and lessons for the next season.

After a crushing outing against CSK on April 25, RCB have had some time to reflect upon their misery and work out possible solutions for their ills. KKR, unfortunately, don’t enjoy such luxury at the moment. They’ve made their way to Bengaluru just a day after suffering a huge loss to Delhi Daredevils, that involved conceding 79 runs in the last five overs.

The two teams have suffered largely through their bowling incompetence, and lead the season for the worst economy rates [RCB – 9.70, KKR – 9.28]. RCB’s woes extend to their bowling at the death, where they’ve conceded at 13.30 this year. An improvement to those returns will be RCB’s first step in the right direction from this stage of the season. For KKR, Sunday’s agenda includes how well they use their spinners up front to pick early wickets and cripple RCB to deny them – Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in particular – the chance of teeing off and paving the way for an above-par total.

When: April 29, 2018, 20:00 IST

Where: M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru

What to expect: Clear skies and a pitch that affords generous amount of turn.

Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Corey Anderson spent some time on the eve of the fixture practicing away from the nets. On one of the side wickets, he used a yellow bib as a marker – first placed at back-of-length and then in the wide yorker region for a right-handed batsman – and tried to pitch the ball on it. He then had discussions with head coach Daniel Vettori, who kept a watch on the proceedings. Colin de Grandhomme was tasked with the drill too, but for a shorter while.

If Anderson is persevered with, RCB could look to add a little more to their bowling might by bringing in Moeen Ali, who can also be a handy batsman, for de Grandhomme. And Moeen’s inclusion could mean Pawan Negi makes way for an Indian fast bowler – one of out left-armer duo Kulwant Khejroliya and Aniket Choudhary, and the promising Delhi pacer Navdeep Saini.

Probable XI: Quinton de Kock, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Corey Anderson, Mandeep Singh, Colin de Grandhomme/Moeen Ali, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, Kulwant Khejroliya

Kolkata Knight Riders

The team management is likely to ponder over their fast bowling options, after Shivam Mavi and Mitchell Johnson conceded 100 runs in the eight overs between them against Delhi Daredevils on Friday. KKR have two local options in Vinay Kumar – who hasn’t featured since failing to defend 17 off the final over against CSK – and Praisdh Krishna – who was brought in as a replacement for the injured Kamlesh Nagarkoti. In place of Johnson, KKR can bring back Tom Curran.

Probable XI: Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Tom Curran, Prasidh Krishna/Vinay Kumar

Head to Head

KKR 12 – RCB 9

Team Record at Chinnaswamy stadium

KKR 4 – RCB 4

Interesting face-offs

AB de Villiers vs Piyush Chawla: Chawla has dismissed de Villiers four times – the joint-most he has got out to any bowler. Among all the opponents in IPL, he averages the least against KKR – 24.92 and has scored only one fifty in 16 innings against them.

Sunil Narine vs Virat Kohli: Kohli has scored 61 runs off 61 balls from Narine since 2013 – the strike-rate of 100 is the lowest for Kohli against a spinner in IPL (30-plus balls). Narine is the only spinner who has managed to dismiss Kohli more than once in this period.

Approaching milestones

Robin Uthappa is 31 runs away from becoming the second player to score 2000 runs for KKR in IPL. He is also 59 away from the milestone of 4000 IPL runs.

What they said:

“Last match was disappointing for us. Because in seven overs they needed 100 runs [99]. But still, it is okay, only six matches are done. There are still eight matches [to play]. If you see in 2015 and 2016, how we bounced back. So it is okay.” – Yuzvendra Chahal on RCB’s topsy-turvy 2018 campaign so far.

CricInfo Preview

Big picture

Royal Challengers Bangalore retained Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, two of the best batsmen in T20s, ahead of the IPL auction. With batsmen to play around them, it was always going to be a case of RCB’s bowling unit needing additional resources. Out of six games, RCB have conceded more than 200 three times and lost all those games.

An interesting second half of the season could be at stake in this game. If Royal Challengers beat Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday, both teams will have three wins in seven games. If Knight Riders win, a clear gulf between the top and bottom half will start to form.

Knight Riders endured their worst day of the season on Friday, losing by 55 runs to Delhi Daredevils after conceding the season’s biggest total. There were also several fielding lapses; match-winner Shreyas Iyer was dropped twice. Despite that, KKR’s depth in batting and bowling should provide a stern test for Royal Challengers, given the short dimensions of the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

In the news

Royal Challengers will likely look at ringing in a few changes on the bowling front after failing to defend a 200-plus total against Chennai Super Kings. Left-arm pacer Kulwant Khejroliya, who hasn’t played since their third match, against Rajasthan Royals, had an extended spell at practice.

The likely XIs

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Manan Vohra, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 AB de Villiers, 5 Mandeep Singh, 6 Colin de Grandhomme, 7 Pawan Negi, 8 Washington Sundar, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Umesh Yadav, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal

Kolkata Knight Riders: 1 Chris Lynn, 2 Sunil Narine, 3 Robin Uthappa, 4 Nitish Rana, 5 Dinesh Karthik (capt, wk), 6 Andre Russell, 7 Shubman Gill, 8 Piyush Chawla, 9 Mitchell Johnson, 10 Kuldeep Yadav, 11 Shivam Mavi

Previous meeting

Knight Riders ran down 177 comfortably in the opening game for both these sides at Eden Gardens. That chase included a 17-ball fifty from Sunil Narine.

Strategy punt

Lynn and Narine are an efficient batting pair because of their varied preferences. Lynn relishes pace: he strikes at 178.8 per 100 balls, and hits a boundary every 3.4 balls in the IPL since 2015. Against spin, he has a strike rate of 127.3, with a boundary every seven balls. Narine, on the other hand, prefers spin: he has a strike-rate of 196.6 against these bowlers, with a boundary every three balls.

Royal Challengers could use a spinner against Lynn and a fast bowler to Narine, with tight fields to prevent singles. That could force both batsmen to attempt tougher shots against a type of bowling they’re not comfortable with.

Stats that matter

  • Royal Challengers are the worst bowling team at the death this season, conceding 13.29 runs an over in that period. They are also the second-most efficient batting team in that period, scoring 11.49 runs an over.
  • In IPLs since 2015, de Villiers hasn’t had a strike-rate under 150 against any form of bowling. His worst strike-rate is against left-arm spin: 154.8.
  • Andre Russell may have a slight weakness against right-arm legspinners. Since 2015 in the IPL, he has scored just 66 runs off 52 balls, and has been dismissed three times.

Fantasy pick

After their struggles against Super Kings, it’s a good time to bank on some untested death bowlers for Royal Challengers, such as Tim Southee, who joined the team late, after missing the first few games due to an illness. In T20s since 2015, Southee has taken 52 wickets, 18 of which have come in the death overs.
