The Tournament is 10 matches old and what we have here as the 11th Fixture, the only match for this wonderful Thursday is Royal Challengers Bangalore taking on Kolkata Knight Riders. Stay in touch with us for IPL Live Streaming for this match.
Both the sides look evenly balanced with the first couple of matches judging their performance. Though the points tables indicates 4 points to Royal Challengers Bangalore whereas it indicates 2 points to Kolkata Knight Riders, it would be false statement to tell that Kolkata are less powerful contender for the contest. I would rather say this is evenly set match between the two. Watch IPL Online with us for this coming game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.
After starting on couple of winning notes there are still some areas where Royal Challengers Bangalore must improve upon. They should be concentrating more on their batting. Absence of Chris Gayle from first couple of matches had really made the chase look a bit difficult in the second match against the Mumbai Indians. Though they made it look simple at the end of day, but Couple of Ducks for Virat Kohli followed by Yuvraj Singh were points to be concerned. Royal Challengers Bangalore also has Chris Gayle to join their playing XI. Chris Gayle is recovering from sore back and has yet to play his first match of this tournament. It is interesting to see how he starts off to this tournament. Questions are still running that whether he will be really able to play.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders started the tournament with a pretty convincing win against Mumbai Indians. They initially registered only 2 wins out of 12 against the side but made it at the opening match of this edition of Indian Premier League. Kolkata Knight Riders are really a good bowling unit. It was nice to see that in first couple of matches the batting lineup should some positives notes in delivering 160+ scores on board. But in this season these scores does not seem to be convincing and satisfied. Kolkata Knight Riders has to deliver good in batting. Gautam Gambhir is yet to open his account. He was out for 2 times Duck in the first two matches in this seventh edition of IPL. So it will be interesting to see how he look forward to this match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Also, the lower middle order of Kolkata Knight Riders is point of concern. Manish Pandey is the man who is delivering as of now for the team. Big guns namely Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan, Robin Utthappa needs to show more involvement in batting. No doubt Robin played a fantastic knock against the Delhi Daredevils in the last match, but the score was not defended by the bowlers. Talking about Kolkata bowling, Sunil Narine is key to watch out for. If Gayle plays todays match it will be a nice competition to see Chris Gayle facing Sunil Narine. Morne Morkel too is good. Vinay Kumar is not delivering for Kolkata. They can try other Indian bowler instead of him. They can go ahead with Umesh Yadav for this match. They need to try different alternatives.
