Kolkata Knight Riders will host Royal Challengers Bangalore at Eden Gardens.
KKR also have relied too much on West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell this season.
Kolkata Knight Riders will host Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday at Eden Gardens as they look to end their three-match losing streak.
whenever Russell has failed to smash the opposition bowlers, KKR have struggled to maintain their momentum. Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla have also failed to impress this season.
RCB are not having a good season at all, already losing seven of their first eight seasons in the season.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) heads to the Eden Gardens where Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
Both teams are in desperate need of a win to increase their chances of finishing in the playoff places in season 12 of the IPL Point table
RCB are in a precarious position where another loss could end their hopes of finishing in the IPL playoff places.
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have been in good touch this year but a dismal performance from the bowlers has seen them rooted to the bottom of the table
RCB might include South African pacer Dale Steyn in their playing 11 and for that, Mohammad Siraj would clearly be rested. The inclusion of Steyn would definitely be a booster for the dejected side as he may breath some life into the side.
Dinesh Karthik-led KKR have lost their sheen after losing three matches in a row. RCB, after a glimmer of hope with their first win, was defeated yet again.
