KKR are have a strong spin attack and are favourites to win this clash against RCB.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
RCB’s recent loss to Punjab Kings highlighted issues in their death bowling on flat wickets and against a big-hitting lower-order like the one KKR has, it could be exposed again.
Keep an eye on…
Virat Kohli: The former RCB captain, freed of responsibility, played with more intent in the first game, but will be up against two high quality spinners in Narine and Varun. RCB’s chances could hinge on who wins the battle between Kohli and the spinners.
Sunil Narine: The West Indian was unlucky to go wicketless against CSK and could have a great outing against RCB, especially with their best player of spin, Glenn Maxwell, missing.
TIP: Venkatesh Iyer has been in good form overall. Back Venkatesh Iyer at 4.63 to be KKR’s top batter!
