KKR vs RCB weather report live today and pitch report from Eden Gardens, Kolkata – IPL 2024, match 36

Vaseline 2 months ago

Eden Gardens is all set to host the KKR vs RCB IPL 2024 match on Sunday, April 21. This is KKR’s third home game on the trot. This is also the inverted fixture between the two sides.

KKR lost their previous match against Rajasthan Royals at Eden Gardens. Sunil Narine’s maiden IPL ton was overpowered by Jos Buttler’s brilliant ton as KKR suffered a heartbreaking defeat. A score of 223 was not enough for the Knight Riders on the day.

RCB, on the other hand, has bigger problems. They go into this match on the back of their previous loss against SRH where they conceded 287 runs first.

That remains the most runs scored in the first innings of an IPL match. A total of 549 runs were scored in that match, which is a T20 record.

RCB’s bowling remains their problem. The hitters have stepped up in almost every game. Either the score was not defended, or they were asked to chase much more than they would ideally have liked. The bowling problems have led to selection issues within the team as there is no bowler with any serious reputation.

KKR would be keen to return to winning ways after the narrow defeat to RR. They are still second on the points table and would like to maintain that position. RCB, on the other hand, is in last place.
