We are into the 17th match of IPL 2019 and the two teams featuring in this contest are Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders. The match will take place at the home of Royal Challengers Bangalore i.e. at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Nothing is going RCB’s way as they are yet to win a game this season and a loss here will dent their chances even more of finishing among the last four.
Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, have been brilliant so far irrespective of the last match super-over loss at the hands of Delhi Capitals. They are perfectly placed at the fourth spot on the points table with 4 points from 3 games, whereas, without a win to their name, Royal Challengers Bangalore are languishing at the bottom.
Royal Challengers Bangalore haven’t defeated Kolkata Knight Riders from the last two editions of IPL. Their last win over KKR came in the 2016 edition at the Chinnaswamy Stadium by 9 wickets.
