THE LOWDOWN

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS

  • At the half-way stage of their encounter with Rajasthan Royals, KKR looked set to make it five wins from six IPL games in 2024 after piling up 223/6, but Jos Buttler had other ideas and orchestrated an extraordinary run chase.
  • Buttler finished on 107 not out from 60 balls, batting across the entire 20 overs to lead Rajasthan home with just two wickets remaining, preventing KKR from moving to the top of the table.

ROYAL CHALLENGERS BENGALURU

  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru were on the end of an IPL record score most recently as Sunrisers Hyderabad smashed 287/3, taking full advantage of the small Chinnaswamy boundaries.
  • Although RCB put up a very good effort across the chase, scoring 262/7 from their 20 overs, limiting the size of the inevitable defeat to 25 runs, leaving them still rooted to the bottom of the table.

THE PREDICTION

Failing to defend such a large score last time out would’ve no doubt been seen as a real opportunity missed from a KKR perspective and the need to put that right here is evident. RCB’s bowlers have had a miserable time through the majority of this year’s IPL and at Eden Gardens against an in-form KKR top order, that is likely to continue here, with the outcome leading to a KKR win regardless of whether it’s via defending or chasing a target.

TIP: KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS TO WIN
