Match Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore have not had a great record at the Chinnaswamy Stadium off late. However, they would desperately want their home turf to bring back some fortune for them as the team is languishing at the bottom of the points table with four losses from four matches.

If RCB don't succeed in turning things around in the next couple of matches, it can be curtains for the team quite early in the season. A team which has batting powerhouses like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shimron Hetmyer is expected to go further than this.

Parthiv Patel performed well in the first match and would continue to open the batting. His opening partners have been changing but it is expected that RCB would persist with Moeen Ali at the top of the order, with Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers following them.

The addition of Marcus Stoinis has given them some balance. Although Navdeep Saini did not get a wicket in the last match, he showed a lot of potential and is expected to come good again.

Kolkata Knight Riders rested Sunil Narine and went for opening the batting with Chris Lynn and Nitish Rana in the last match. Andre Russell would continue to be their most valuable player while Kuldeep Yadav is the trump card of their bowling. Lockie Ferguson and Prasidh Krishna have also been hitting hard lengths.
