On March 30th, Bangalore will face Kolkata in Match 6 of the Indian T20 League 2022 at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. The two teams had quite different openings to their tournament season. Bangalore was defeated by Punjab. Kolkata, on the other hand, triumphed against Chennai. The Bangalore bowlers were unable to defend a total of more than 200 runs. Kolkata, on the other hand, never let Chennai catch up.
Bangalore will be anxious to recover after a five-wicket setback to Punjab in a high-scoring match. The batting of Faf du Plessis’ team was excellent, but the bowling was a massive disappointment. The squad was unable to defend a colossal score of 206. It was a rare failure for Mohammed Siraj, Harshal Patel, and Wanindu Hasaranga. The group would try to make amends by putting on a better performance.
Bangalore has lost two of its three matches at the site, including the most recent encounter against Punjab, with the lone win coming in 2010.
Tim Southee of New Zealand will be available for Kolkata, while Pat Cummins and Aaron Finch of Australia will be unavailable.
Although Kolkata’s bowlers performed admirably at the Wankhede, they will be mindful of the batter-friendly Dr. DY Patil Stadium, where the two-time winners won both games in 2010 and 2011. When pursuing and batting first, they each won once.
Because of the vast borders, this venue hasn’t always been a high-scoring one. The spinners will struggle if there is a lot of grass on the ground. It also appears to be tough, so it should be an excellent surface to bat on with decent carry. Around 165 would be the par score. The trend has been to chase here, with more than 200 being chased in the last encounter.
