KKR vs RCB Match 36 Prediction: Who Will Win Today’s Match Between Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 2024

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) are set to clash in Match 36 on Sunday, April 21, at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. KKR heads into the game after a narrow loss to Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their previous fixture.

Despite the setback, KKR boasts a commendable season, currently occupying the second spot on the points table with four wins out of six matches, tallying eight points. Their batting and bowling units have displayed impressive performances throughout the season. The opening duo of Sunil Narine and Phil Salt has flourished, while Captain Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russell, and Rinku Singh have contributed significantly with the bat.

In contrast, RCB enters the match under pressure, having suffered five consecutive losses. Led by Faf du Plessis, they face a crucial juncture in the season, needing victories in every encounter to sustain their playoff aspirations. Currently languishing at the bottom of the points table with only one win from seven matches, amassing two points, RCB seeks a turnaround. 

Virat Kohli has been in sensational form, emerging as the tournament’s leading run-scorer with 361 runs from seven innings, boasting an impressive average of 72.20 and a strike rate of 147.34.
