IPL 2018: KKR to take on RCB in Kolkata Sunday

They still have core players in Robin Uthappa, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn from last editions.

The interesting episode of the game, the turning point, arrived in the 15th over of Royal Challengers Bangalore's innings. It needed a big decision from Kolkata Knight Riders' skipper Dinesh Karthik and he handed the ball to Nitish Rana. The left-hander scored his half-century off just 17 balls and made sure KKR get off to flying start. New Zealand all-rounders Corey Anderson, Colin de Grandhomme and bowler Tim Southee join former global superstar Brendon McCullum on the roster. Narine smacked 50 off 19 balls, setting up a fairly comfortable four-wicket win for Kolkata, who chased down Bangalore's 176 for 7 in 18.5 overs.

While it was crucial for RCB to keep the momentum going amidst the control which spin bowlers had gained, McCullum freed his arms as soon as the pace bowler Johnson was introduced.

At least Virat Kohli is fit to start the competition: The skipper and his side never really recovered from his absence at the beginning of the 2017 campaign and he will need to come close to his IPL 9 form where he took the Orange Cap with 973 runs. This was KKR's sixth win out of nine matches over RCB at the Eden Gardens.

De Villiers, who is also popularly known as Mr 360 because of his ability to hit the ball anywhere on the ground, is also hopeful of winning the IPL trophy. Opening the batting, he balsted five sixes and four 4s to unsettle Virat Kohli and Co. He went to the pavilion by scoring 43 runs from 26 balls. After all the questions on their availability for selection, they will look to make most of their recovery and will play a key role for Kolkata.

With the fall of the two massive wickets, Rana put KKR right into the driver's seat. As many as 16 runs were leaked in the final over by Karnataka pacer Vinay Kumar who had a forgettable comeback for KKR. Kohli is clear at [3.4] but AB De Villiers, after issues with injury, looked somewhere close to his best towards the end of the South African worldwide season and he's the pick at a generous [4.3]. After his departure, there were quick-fire innings from the bat of Rishabh Pant (28) and Chris Morris (27), but in the end that didn't prove enough at the end of the day. This match was also Kohli and Uthappa's 150th match in the IPL. All the home matches will be played here.
