After a losing start, Bengaluru found their grip with a facile win here. They have struggled against Kolkata historically, but it is the Sixes market that I am checking out. Put your money on Kolkata scoring more 6s than Bengaluru.

  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru have conceded the most 6s in both their matches this season (IPL)
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have hit the most 6s of the match in their last 7 matches against Bengaluru (IPL)
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have hit the most 6s in 8 of the 11 matches against Bengaluru at this venue (IPL)
  • Virat Kohli has scored fifty or more in 4 of his last 5 matches against Kolkata in Bengaluru (IPL)

Head to Head


Bengaluru played Kolkata 33 times in total, including once in the Champions League. The Knight Riders lead the results tally with 19 wins and 14 losses.

Last season in the IPL, Kolkata won both their matches against Bengaluru. A confident 81-run win at the Eden Gardens was followed by a 21-run win at this venue. Varun Chakaravarthy was the wrecker-in-chief, aggregating seven wickets over the two legs.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Form


Bengaluru have two points after two matches and are just outside the top-five. They started with a six-wicket loss to Chennai on the opening night, but bounced back for a four-wicket win over Punjab at this venue.

Virat Kohli scored their only individual fifty this year, while league veteran Dinesh Karthik had two unbeaten knocks for a combined SR of 183.33.

The challenge for the Royal Challengers is to find the right bowling combination, as they lack a leader at the moment. Four different bowlers have taken two wickets each, while only Yash Dayal has an ER of below eight per over.

Rajat Patidar could be under pressure from Mahipal Lomror for a place in the starting XI. Lockie Ferguson could get a chance in place of Alzarri Joseph.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata played only one match in this tournament and defeated the Sunrisers Hyderabad by four runs in a tight game.

The Knight Riders posted 208 for 7 batting first, riding on the pyrotechnics of Andre Russell (64* off 25). Phil Salt played a crucial role in the opening and middle overs with a knock of 54.

The bowlers were challenged until the last over, when it looked like the Sunrisers had cracked the code and would win. Yet, young bowler Harshit Rana (3 for 33) had other ideas and won the game with a calm display.

With Phil Salt performing admirably, Rahmanullah Gurbaz may have to wait in the wings a bit more.
