Let’s take a look at the top 5 key players we should watch out for when Kolkata Knight Riders lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore:
1. AB de Villiers
There’s an aura around this south African, and every cricket lover has felt it. Mr. 360, the outright mastermind, has been monumental as always for his side. He single-handedly helped the Royal Challengers to victory, twice, already in this season. And he struck the last time too when he faced the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Until now, he has scored 285 runs in 9 innings, with a prodigious strike-rate of 190.00; when he is on strike, the bowlers have been fearful rather than sanguine. To somewhat articulate, he has been unstoppable.
