Though KKR won the IPL trophy twice RCB is yet to win their maiden title. They have qualified for the final three times but yet to clinch one of the richest cricket leagues in the world. As KKR will play the match at their home ground they will have upper hand. In IPL, there are many rivalries and the battle between KKR and RCB is one of the best in the Indian T20 league. As the match is going to be played at the Eden Gardens, home ground of KKR, they Kolkata side will have the upper hand in the match over the visiting side RCB.
Best economical pick – His ability to bowl with the new ball with the field restrictions makes him a valuable addition to the RCB squad. Washington Sundar impressed everyone in his debut season last year with RPS. In 11 matches he picked up 8 wickets at an economy of 6.16. He continued his good form in the recently concluded tri-series between India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh where he took 9 wickets in 6 games at an economy of 5.66.
Top captains & vice captains – In the history of IPL, RCB captain Virat Kohli is one of the big stars. He holds the record of most runs in a season. On the other hand, his South African partner AB de Villiers is a clean hitter of the ball. Kohli and de Villiers will play a key role for RCB. If they get they going RCB will have nothing to worry but KKR will have found a clue to get rid of them.
Smart pick – Sunil Narine has been a revelation of the IPL. He has been the most consistent performer of the tournament till date. Foxing the batsman with his canny variations, Narine is a magician at work. Narine is the most economical bowler in the IPL history, his economy of 6.32 runs per over is the best economy garnered to date. He was adjudged the Most Valuable Player of IPL 2017 because of his consistent performance with both the ball and bat.
Cautious Pick – After a solid performance in domestic cricket Mohammad Siraj hasn't had a good start to his international career. He went for plenty of runs in the 3 international matches played till. He got punished by Bangladeshi Batsmen in the recently concluded Nidahas Trophy which tells about his form, so pick him in your squad with your own risk.
My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), AB de Villiers (Vice-Captain), Washington Sundar, Sunil Narine, Sarfaraz Khan, Chris Woakes, Colin de Grandhomme, Dinesh Karthik, Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill, Brendon McCullum
