In match 30 of Vivo IPL 2021, the Knight Riders from Kolkata will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore led by King Kohli. Both the teams have had a contrasting tournament thus far. RCB have won 5 out of 7 games, whereas KKR have won 2 out of their 7 matches.
RCB have looked like a completely different side this season. The team's batting order has looked in great shape. However, the biggest difference has been the performance of the bowlers in the side. Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj have been extremely impressive with the ball. Although Harshal has been expensive at the death, but he has picked wickets at regular intervals.
Whereas KKR are yet to find the right balance in the side. They haven't batted with intent in the powerplay which has added extra pressure on the middle order. Moreover, their bowlers have been punished heavily, in the powerplay as well as in the final few overs. KKR would have to deliver their best performance to defeat RCB.
