IPL 2021: Virat Kohli and co. collapse at the hands of a strong KKR

RCB are unable to capitalize on a continuous innings, allow the Knights back to back wickets

The Royal Challengers Bangalore don’t seem to have a good day at the Shiekh Zayed Stadium against the KKR. Despite winning the toss, Virat Kohli and co. find it difficult to capitalize on continuous innings. As a result, allowing the Kolkata Knight Riders back to back wickets. Virat Kohli who featured in his 200th IPL game today got out at 5 runs off  Prasidh Krishna’s LBW. A long-awaited review for the teams.

Devdutt Paddikal looked like he was going to go for a good amount of runs but needed to hurry up as no other player was able to support him. Ab De Villiers was out on duck. This has been entirely the hard work of Varun Chakaravathy and the bowling crew of the Kolkata Knight Riders. Surely, the Bangalore squad is in tatters. As a result, they are finding it so difficult to get to the 100-runs- mark as the players succumb to the bowlers today.

How will RCB save their game today?

The Kolkata Knight Riders are extremely positive as they return to the remainder of the IPL extremely strong. A clinical team performance to aim for a much-needed comeback. Although, many of us hoped that Virat Kohli, Ab De Villiers, and Glenn Maxwell trio will be a big boost to the RCB franchise. The debutants Wanindu Hasaranga and KS Bharat did not seem promising but were much in a hurry. The game pretty much looks one-sided and KKR is possibly going to get the better of the men donning a blue jersey for today’s clash.

What does the second innings hold?

Firstly, the Challengers bowling squad is put to bat towards the rear end of the first innings. Of course, they will find it difficult to score. Secondly, the KKR is just waiting to take advantage of that and crush the RCB squad. As the Challengers go down wicket by wicket, they are hungry for runs and have made a couple of errors. A target of just 93 runs is set. Let’s see how the RCB bowlers are set to save their team today! The second innings will be underway soon!
