Royal Challengers Bangalore host Kolkata Knight Riders at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is one side which has always boasted of a strong batting side and yet achieving nothing in this smash-and-grab nature of T20 League.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are now 0-4 down and considering their form, it would be a huge task for Virat Kohli to bring his team out of the menace.
Virat Kohli faces a herculean task of taking his team to first win of this edition of IPL as the team has suffered back-to-back defeats in first four matches and are now seated at the eighth and the last spot at 2019 IPL points table.
Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders won their first two matches comfortably but Delhi denied them a hat-trick of wins as they snatched victory in the super over. Andre Russell has been in supreme form RCB bowlers would be busy preparing for a way to get rid of him before he starts demolishing.
Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine would be the key for KKR as they look to cash in on the spin-friendly track at Feroz Shah Kotla.
The batting side looks complete with Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell and captain Dinesh Karthik in form and changes are likely on the bowling side as the Bangalore pitch may be demanding.
Here are the playing 11 probabales of both the teams:
RCB playing 11: Virat Kohli, Parthiv Patel, AB de Villiers, Akshdeep Nath, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Moeen Ali, Marcus Stoinis, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Tim Southee
KKR playing 11: Chris Lynn, Nitish Rana, Robin Uthappa, Sunil Narine, Dinesh Karthik (C) (W), Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Lockie Ferguson
