Sunday will be the first doubleheader day of the Indian Premier League 2021. At Chennai, Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) will face Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) in the afternoon match.

RCB are still unbeaten in this edition but KKR had lost their second match against Mumbai Indians at this venue. KKR will be looking to step forward forgetting that drastic performance.

Inside RCB:

Skipper Virat Kohli will be pleased with the performance of his team. Two Indian players had risen on the occasion in two matches. Shahbaz Ahmed and Hrshal Patel are providing excellent service to the team right now.

RCB have 7-8 bowling options in playing XI and also have depth in batting too. Maxwell is in good form too. Daniel Sams has joined the team bubble recently.

Inside KKR:

Andre Russell’s bowling show was outstanding and overwhelming but the batting show was too poor. KKR batsmen suffered to deliver on the Chennai pitch last day. They might have learned things and will try to come back strongly.

The bowling unit is bowling well. Pat Cummins is picking wickets at the right times. The batting form of the skipper, Eoin Morgan is not good. Nitish Rana is playing well. He got two consecutive half-centuries. Shakib Al Hasan is performing well with the ball as well.

RCB vs KKR: What to expect

The pitch of Chennai has become slow as many matches have been played. Batting in the second innings is hard. Especially the last 4-5 overs are tough to hit big. Dew has been seen in the last two days. So keeping all that in mind it will be wise to bat first.

Probable XI of RCB:

There may be no changes in this team. They will be looking to continue with the winning combination. Though Sams is available they may continue with Christian.

Devdutt will be opening with Kohli. Maxwell, Shahbaz, AB will take care of the middle order. Harshal Patel, Siraj is in good form too. Chahal hasn’t spark yet. Fans will be looking at him to shine.

Probable XI of KKR:

There may not be any change in KKR also. Rana and Gill will be opening. Tripathi, Morgan, Russell will bat in the middle order. Dinesh Karthik also struggled in the last match. He and Shakib will bat at lower order.

Cummins and Varun Chakravarthy were impressive. The experience of Harbhajan will be valuable to the team.
