Cricket Match Preview:

The winless streak of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has now extended to their fourth cricket game. They have now played four games and lost all four of them. If they still want to remain in the competition, they will have to quite simply start winning the games of cricket. There are ten games remaining for them and they have to win at least seven to reach the playoffs.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), on the other hand, have begun well in the tournament. They were unbeaten after the first two games and almost stole the third one as well after holding Delhi Capitals (DC) for a tie. The game of cricket was then decided by the super over in which Delhi’s Kagiso Rabada bowled the over of the tournament to win the game for DC.

RCB have almost exhausted all of their options in the first four games of cricket. In all of their four games of cricket, they have gone in with different opening combinations. In their last game of cricket against Rajasthan Royals (RR), they got the services of all-rounder Marcus Stoinis for the first time. They perhaps played their most balanced side as yet and yet it was not enough for them to win the game of cricket.

KKR had an injury scare in their last cricket game when their star performer Andre Russell got an external injury from the delivery of Harshal Patel in their last cricket game. It would be a big blow for KKR if Andre Russell misses out of their next game as he has been the prime reason for their success in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 so far.

For Virat Kohli, apart from the failure of his team, what must be also concerning is his form and also AB de Villiers’ inconsistency with the bat. Both of them have been the backbone of RCB’s batting for years now and in the absence of their runs, immense pressure has fallen on rest of their batting. Their bowling was always going to be under the pump in the absence of any star power in their bowling lineup.

Cricket Match Information:

RCB and KKR will take on each other in their fifth and fourth cricket game of the IPL 2019. RCB are yet to win their account, whereas KKR have won two and lost their last cricket game against DC.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

RCB are being led by Virat Kohli once again. They have got a horrendous start to their season once again. Our prediction is of at least one change in Tim Southee for their next cricket game as they look to avoid another loss in the competition.

Here is our prediction of RCB’s playing XI:

  • Virat Kohli
  • Parthiv Patel
  • AB de Villiers
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Moeen Ali
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Shivam Dube
  • Umesh Yadav
  • Mohammad Siraj
  • NA Saini
  • Tim Southee

Kolkata Knight Riders

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

KKR is being led by Dinesh Karthik for the second season in a row. KKR have got off to a great start in this year’s IPL. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of KKR’s playing XI:

  • Shubhman Gill
  • Chris Lynn
  • Sunil Narine
  • Andre Russell
  • Nitish Rana
  • Dinesh Karthik
  • Prasidh Krishna
  • Piyush Chawla
  • Lokie Ferguson
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Robin Uthappa

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Virat Kohli has had a poor IPL so far in this year’s tournament. Our prediction is of a good knock from him and a welcome return to the form for him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The pitch in Bangalore has returned to their old self and lots of runs are in store for the batsmen. The bowlers will have to struggle a lot on this pitch. Hence, our prediction is of a score of around 180 this time around. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

KKR will begin this game of cricket as favourites. RCB are in terrible form at the moment and KKR will not get the better opportunity to get two points on the board. Hence, our prediction is of KKR’s victory in this game of cricket.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Andre Russell (KKR) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

L Ferguson (KKR) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Andre Russell (KKR)
