The Battle between two heavyweights is all set to take place as the Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore side take on the Dinesh Karthik led Kolkata Knight Riders at the paradise of high scoring affairs the iconic Sharjah Cricket Stadium. As far as the form of both captains is considered they looked in deadly touch as both Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik have been among the runs for their sides in the previous few matches.
Both sides have so far won four matches and lost just two in the entire tournament so with Kolkata placed third and Bangalore placed fourth in the points table. A win for either one franchise would mean they’d go one up probably replacing Delhi Capitals for the second place in the points table.
As both sides consist of sheer power packed performers which is why to let’s take a look at the top five key players to watch out for in today’s match.
Let’s take a look at the 5 key players to watch out for when Kolkata Knight Riders lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore:
1. Virat Kohli
The Run Machine Virat Kohli is finally back in form as he’s been doing the bulk of the scoring for his side since the last three games Royal Challengers Bangalore have played. After having a rough start to the tournament, Virat Kohli got back in form just in the nick of time.
In the match against Chennai Super Kings at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Kohli scored an unbeaten 90 off just 52 deliveries from which over 50 runs were scored by running between the wickets. The hunger for scoring runs is back with Virat Kohli which is why he’s one of the five key players we all should watch out for during the match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
