One Side Kolkata Knight Riders Team,

  • KKR, who will be led by the ever-bustling Dinesh Karthik this season, have several players from the squad that made the journey to the Playoffs last season. 
  • The team retained Andre Russell and Sunil Narine, and then signed back several players at the Player Auction.
  • The team suffered a blow in the days leading to the start of this season when Mitchell Starc, who was expected to be the team’s bowling spearhead, was ruled out because of a stress fracture. 
  • However, they have been able to procure the services of England’s Tom Curran as a replacement. 
  • There were question marks over the participation of Chris Lynn, who injured his shoulder while playing for Australia in February; but the 27-year old has been seen striking the ball in the nets and stands a good chance of featuring in the playing XI. 
  • KKR have the smallest squad of all the teams; they have only 19 players on their roster, and hence it is important that the first-choice players hit the turf running from match one.

Which is the Favourite team out of Kolkata and Bangalore ?

Impact Batsmen for Kolkata Knight Riders

  • The last time these two teams met, Sunil Narine shredded the RCB bowlers – not with the ball, but with the bat; the Trinidadian scored the (equal) fastest 50 in the IPL, needing only 15 balls to reach the milestone. 
  • Narine opening the batting is a bit of a hit-or-miss strategy; yet, the days he gets going, he will put the team in a solid position. 
  • KKR might considering toying with that idea in this game, given the scars from Narine’s assault in the previous meeting are still fresh in memory. 
  • Given the dearth of experienced batsmen in the squad and very limited options available to choose from, Chris Lynn and captain Dinesh Karthik – who will be playing his first game since the match-winning last ball six in Sri Lanka – will be expected to make big contributions with the bat.

Impact Batsmen for Royal Challengers Bangalore

  • RCB yet again have a solid batting line-up, and unlike the past where it was top-heavy, this season they have quality batting options right through. However, there will still be dependence on the top-order – likely to comprise Brendon McCullum (or Quinton de Kock), Virat Kohli & AB de Villiers – to do the bulk of the damage.


  • Notwithstanding the fact that the surface at the Eden Gardens has assisted the quick bowlers in recent times, for sheer class, their ability to strangle the batsmen and for their ability to pick up wickets, it will the spinners on both sides who will be under the spotlight in this match. 
  • KKR have Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav in their ranks, while Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar will most likely feature in the RCB XI.
