RCB Bowling Stats vs Kolkata Knight Riders
Like all the bowling lists for RCB, Yuzvendra Chahal tops the list here also for his team. He has taken 14 scalps from 14 innings against Kolkata Knight Riders. His wrist-spin has always been the tough nut to crack for the opposition teams. He is followed by Pawan Negi with 6 wickets from 3 innings. Mohammed Siraj and Navdeep Saini have 6 and 5 wickets respectively against KKR.

Mohammed Siraj and Murugan Ashwin have been good in the very limited opportunities they got to face KKR at home. Pawan Negi will be having a difficult task against KKR due to the quality of left-handed batsmen in the opposition. Mohammed Siraj and Navdeep Saini should take the leadership of fast bowling cartel after their international experience with team India along with Umesh Yadav. Mohammed Siraj picked up a total of 4 scalps in couple of matches against KKR last year.

Overall:

No Player Innings Wickets 5w 4w
1 Yuzvendra Chahal 14 14 0 0
