Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) seem to have found their rhythm looking at their recent performances. Skipper Virat Kohli is making runs while young Devdutt Padikkal has impressed everyone at the top of the order, All eyes will now be on AB de Villiers as his bat is quiet since few games. RCB however would want more runs from the bat of Aaron Finch.
The bowling department also looks good for RCB. Chris Morris had a good comeback game against CSK in the last match where he picked up 3 wickets and finished with the figures of 3-19. Guys like Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal have been bowling well for the team.
As far as KKR team is concerned, its been a sort of mixed bag for the side. The KKR side has 4 wins from 6 matches so far and are currently placed at 3rd position in the points table. Skipper Dinesh Karthik finally got some runs in the last match against Punjab as he smashed 58 runs from 29 balls with 8 fours and 2 sixes. The chance provided to Rahul Tripathi in the opening slot in place of Narine worked out as Tripathi scored brilliant 81 against Chennai.
