Kolkata Knight Riders
Over ten days ago, the Kolkata Knight Riders slipped down to number six even after they started the season rather strongly, registering four wins. But recently, having lost some matches in a row, including two home fixtures, they have several batting and bowling issues to address. Andre Russell suffered a shoulder injury in the same place twice, with Robin Uthappa and Carlos Brathwaitehelping him off the field. Captain Dinesh Karthik is unable to comment on Russell’s presence on the field.
Probable XI: Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa, Sunil Narine, Harry Gurney, Andre Russell/Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Lynn, Kuldeep Yadav, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Shubman Gill
Royal Challengers Bangalore
If the Royal Challengers Bangalore suffer one more loss, then even their mathematical chances of progressing beyond the league season will vanish. Yet, the team has been able to record only one win and that against the Kings XI Punjab but suffered a 5-wicket loss against Mumbai Indians. Looks like the team is dependent on AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli to score runs between the wickets.
