RCB vs KKR IPL 2024 Match 10 Match-Ups

Royal Challengers Bengaluru will be up against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 10th match of IPL 2024 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Both sides are coming off a win in their previous games, with RCB defeating Punjab Kings by 4 wickets thanks to Kohli’s fine knock of 77 runs, while KKR pulled off a close win against SRH by 4 runs.

Before the highly-awaited game begins, let’s take a look at five interesting matchups to keep an eye on in RCB vs KKR.

  1. Virat Kohli vs Sunil Narine

Virat Kohli is in fine form, coming off a half-century in his previous game. However, the star batter will be cautious of Narine when they face each other on Friday, as the Caribbean spinner has kept him in check, conceding runs at a run-a-ball rate of 106 and dismissing him four times.

2. Glenn Maxwell vs Sunil Narine

Narine holds a fantastic record against RCB’s top three batsmen. He has also kept Maxwell in check, conceding 59 runs off 59 balls and dismissing him thrice. Also, he has removed Skipper Duplessis once in 47 balls.

3. Shreyas Iyer vs Mohammed Siraj

Iyer departed on a two-ball duck against SRH in his first game, and this problem is unlikely to reduce when he faces Siraj, who has troubled him, conceding only 33 runs off 32 balls and dismissing him twice.

4. Glenn Maxwell vs Varun Chakravarthy

Glenn Maxwell is yet to click as a batter for RCB and is a big asset for them in the middle order. However, the right-hand batter has difficulties facing Varun, getting dismissed thrice after scoring 35 runs off 24 balls. Seeing how he copes with Varun in the middle overs on Friday will be interesting.

5. Andre Russell vs Mohammed Siraj

Andre Russell’s attacking game-play may face a Siraj-check on Friday, as the experienced pacer has effectively kept him in control, conceding a run-a-ball 22 and dismissing him twice in the process.
