Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL Match 11 Preview

RCB vs KKR IPL Live on Star Sports, Go Cricket and Sony Six

While all Chennai Super Kings fan rightly claim how well their team bounces back, we are now all set for another big match today - Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders. Chennai has climbed up the points tally to second spot. The unbeaten RCB can topple them if they manage a win here. Kolkata is placed on fifth position at this juncture. Enjoy this good IPL match live streamed on Star Sports and Go Cricket in India. TV viewers can enjoy the match on Sony Six in India.

Both the teams enjoyed a well deserved four day rest and now they lock horns to gain two more important points. Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Delhi Daredevils in their first match followed by another easy win over Mumbai Indians. Kolkata Knight Riders played opening match of this year's IPL against defending champions Mumbai to emerge as winners. Later they faced Delhi Daredevils and lost to them in a tight match.

Parthiv Patel has done a superb job for RCB as he is the highest run getter for the team so far. He succeeded in both the innings. Yet the more attractive lot out of the squad stays to be Virat, Yuvraj, Gayle, AB de Villiers and Albie Morkel. Even KKR has a good depth in their batting line up. The batting strength begins with the southpaw Gambhir and ends at number eight Piyush Chawla. 

Gautam Gambhir who is eyeing a return to the national team has not scored a run yet in the first two matches. His first aim would be to score a run first or else he will make an unwanted hat-trick of three ducks on the trot. 

A lot of eyes would be set on KKR's bowling sensation Sunil Narine. He has clinched five wickets in eight overs giving away just 38 runs. KKR would rely a lot on him to clinch few important wickets of RCB today.

If we have a look at the head to head stats, these two teams have played 12 matches and won six each. Even stevens! Before these two teams move to Abu Dhabi for their next match they would love to register a win today here at Sharjah. Stay tuned with us for live updates on IPL 2014.

Not to forget its Sachin's birthday today. Virat Kohli wishes him on twitter
