Royal Challengers Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore had a terrific tournament so far but all could go in vain if they don’t win this match which matters the most. Last season also Bangalore reached playoffs but was knocked out in Eliminator by Sunrisers Hyderabad but this time around, they have a really balanced team with X-Factor like Glenn Maxwell who has been indifferent touch at the moment.
Royal Challengers Bangalore didn’t have a good start to the 2nd half as they lost the first two matches but they made a remarkable comeback and Maxwell was the architect behind their resurgence. They are up against Kolkata Knight Riders who are in hot form right now and have already beaten them in the last encounter but Kohli will be rallying on his troops to outdone Kolkata in this clash.

Kolkata Knight Riders
Kolkata Knight Riders have surprised everyone in 2nd phase and are now hot favorites to win the title this season. Kolkata picked up pace in the 2nd phase but things started to become tense after Lockie Ferguson and Andre Russell got injured but Tim Southee and Shakib carried the team and they are finally in the playoffs after the 2018 season.
Bowling has been instrumental but question marks were over batting lineup but in recent matches they have performed exceedingly well collectively. Eoin Morgan also looked good in the series for the first time which is a really positive sign for the Kolkata team. Andre Russell is also expected to be fit for the playoffs.

RCB vs KKR– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:
Royal Challengers Bangalore is expected to win the match against Kolkata Knight Riders
KhelTalk experts feel that Royal Challengers Bangalore will win against Kolkata Knight Riders in this encounter. Both teams are coming off excellent recent form but Royal Challengers Bangalore might have slight problems because of some X-Factor players like Glenn Maxwell who is buckling runs recently and AB De Villiers who has a scintillating record against Kolkata.
Although KKR also has a fair chance question marks over Andre Russell might give RCB a slight advantage but if he plays then both teams will be on the same level terms. Both teams are great and have been playing some quality cricket lately but we expect Royal Challengers Bangalore to defeat Kolkata Knight Riders in this encounter.
Popular Betting Odds For RCB vs KKR, Eliminator, IPL 2021, Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman from Royal Challengers Bangalore – Virat Kohli (3.00 odds)
Virat Kohli is a player of big occasions and he will be raring to perform in his last playoffs as captain. He had a below-par season according to his standards and has only scored 366 runs but stats doesn’t matter in knockout matches. The good thing for Kohli is that he has not been dismissed against spinners in UAE but his strike rate is less than 100.
Kohli is a performer and is an ideal player on a slow track of Sharjah. He has been consistently delivering in crucial matches for Royal Challengers Bangalore and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Top Batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders – Shubman Gill (3.50 odds)
Shubman Gill has rejuvenated himself in 2nd half of IPL and holds the key for Kolkata Knight Riders in the playoffs. He scored a match-winning composed fifty in the last match and it is the same role that Kolkata is expecting him to do at top of the order.
He has scored 352 runs this season and can add big to his tally in this match. Gill is superb against spinners and showed the same against Rajasthan in the last match on the same Sharjah pitch. He can give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders.
Top Bowler from Kolkata Knight Riders– Lockie Ferguson(3.60 odds)
Lockie Ferguson returned to the Kolkata lineup in the last match and instantly showcased his masterclass. He picked 3 wickets against Rajasthan Royals and exploited the Sharjah pitch to the maximum. Surprisingly Sharjah pitch has favored seamers who bow wicket to wicket as the bounce is uneven and it makes life really tough for batters.
Ferguson is really fast and furious and if gets going in powerplay overs then he could destroy Royal Challengers Bangalore hopes as the team performing better in powerplay has won all matches so far in UAE. Lockie Ferguson is our pick for best bowler from Kolkata Knight Riders.
Top Bowler from Royal Challengers Bangalore– Mohammed Siraj (4.50 odds)
Mohammed Siraj has only picked 9 wickets but has created many problems for batters. Royal Challengers Bangalore has only picked one wicket in the powerplay in this UAE leg and one reason is because of a dip in form of Siraj.
He has performed well in death overs but it is powerplay overs where he needs to work on. Siraj is a skiddy customer like Lockie Ferguson and Sharjah’s pitch will suit his bowling style. He Destroyed the Kolkata Knight Riders lineup last season in UAE and can again replicate last season’s heroics. Siraj is a lethal weapon with a new ball and can give you good returns from this match.
