Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore will be confronting the Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders on the 20th of September at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have won 5 of their 7 games so far, and are sitting third on the points table currently.
Royal Challengers Bangalore last played against Punjab Kings in Ahmedabad, where they lost the game by 34 runs. Against Punjab Kings’ 179 runs, RCB could only put up 145 runs and faced their second defeat of the season.
Kolkata Knight Riders would not have enjoyed the first leg of the IPL, as they won only 2 of their 7 games. They bank on youngsters at the top of the order, as well as in the bowling department.
The Sheikh Zayed Stadium is a batting-friendly surface and is expected to assist the batters once again here.
