IPL 2018, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, Match Preview
Written by Abhishek Lohia

The new session, the newly formed two teams, in the new castle. One of the captains is also new If there is something old then the same historic Eden Gardens Stadium. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will launch their ‘Mission Ipl-11’ on this huge ground on Sunday because this will be the first match between the two teams. Hence it would be inappropriate to compare them at this time. Although the history is with the host, Both teams have played head-to-head 21 times so far. 12 times KKR and nine times RCB win The last session was completely the name of Kolkata when both Eden and Chinnaswamy had washed both Kolkata and Bangalore. At Eden, Gautam’s army had piled up Virat’s heroes for just 49 runs, which is the IPL team’s minimum team score.

The year has changed. The team has changed and captain too. In KKR, Gautam Gambhir era has expired, and now the captaincy is on Dinesh Karthik. Karthik is under heavy pressure to take over the legacy of Gautam, who won the titles in 2012 and 2014, but with a long chance to prove himself as a batting player and a captain with Karthik who has been in the shadow of Mahendra Singh Dhoni for a long time. Is. Karthik, who has given India the victory by battling fast-bowling in the finals in Sri Lanka, has indicated to bat in the upper order.

Under-19 effect– 

The first challenge in front of Kartik will be to prepare the right team. There are a lot of new players in the team. The under-19 World Cup winners Indian team members Shubhaman Gill, Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti, are also near Kolkata. In the initial matches, they can be tried, but priority can only be given to the players who have been tried. Opening batsman Chris Lynn and wicketkeeper-batsman Robin Uthappa are believed to be handed over but Sunil Narayan, like the previous season, can also be sent as an explosive opener.

RCB Combination– 

RCB is always known as the team of batsmen. Captain Virat Kohli is ready for action after being rested in the tri-series T-20 series. He has also said that more than fans he is eager to win this trophy. Virat has already told that he will be going to bat at number three. Opener Batting will be on the shoulders of explosive African batsmen AB de Villiers and Batten McCullum. This time the team has not done Retain for Chris Gayle and Shane Watson. There are two great Kiwi all-rounders in the form of Corey Anderson and Colin D. Grandhomme, with the likes of Yuvraj Singh and Moin Ali in the spin department. In the first match, the command of fast bowling can be handed over to Team Southee and Umesh Yadav.
