IPL 2024- KKR vs RCB, Match 36- 3 Player Battles To Look Out For
IPL 2024

Kolkata Knight Riders will host Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the reverse fixture played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on 21st April 2024. It promises to be an exciting contest as KKR would be looking to make a comeback after their 2 wicket loss to RR.

On the other hand, RCB will be eyeing their second win in this tournament. They suffered 25 run loss to SRH as their bowling gave 287 runs. Their batting clicked as du Plessis, Kohli, and Dinesh Karthik made good use of the conditions to post 262 for 7.

It promises to be another closely fought encounter with the pitch likely to help the batters on a good batting paradise.

Here we look at the 3 player battles between KKR vs RCB in match number 36 of IPL 2024.

  1. Virat Kohli vs Mitchell Starc

Virat Kohli showed his batting skills against Mitchell Starc in the previous match. He took charge putting Starc under pressure with his attacking style of shots. Kohli then produced some brilliant shots in the final over to remain not out on 83.

Kohli looked in good touch against SRH with quickfire knock. On the other hand, Starc struggled with his bowling during the previous match against RR. It will be another interesting battle between Kohli and Starc which might decide the fate of the game again.

  1. Lockie Ferguson vs Shreyas Iyer

Lockie Ferguson had a disappointing outing in his debut match for RCB against SRH. Despite picking 2 wickets, he went for 52 runs from 4 overs. On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer struggled and could not carry on for a big score so far.

Ferguson would know the weakness of Shreyas Iyer as he has played for KKR. It promises to be an exciting battle as Ferguson would test him with short balls and get him out putting pressure on the KKR batting lineup.

  1. Will Jacks vs Sunil Narine

Will Jacks was run out in an unfortunate manner at the non-striker end. Jacks will be looking to showcase his talent if Maxwell does not play. On the other hand, Sunil Narine had a great outing picking 2 for 30 in 4 overs.

Jacks could bat at number 3 position and come across Narine in the first six overs. Jacks could open the bowling for RCB would be against an explosive West Indies batter who has been in sensational form scoring a brilliant century against RR.
