Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are to clash with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Match 31 of Vivo IPL 2021 on Monday, September 20, at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Kolkata Knight Riders are currently in the seventh position in the points table, with just two wins from seven games. They have strived to find the right team combination and batting order in the first half of the season and will be hoping for a turnaround now that the venue has changed.
Pacer Pat Cummins will be unavailable for the rest of the tournament, and KKR have replaced him with Tim Southee. Shakib Al Hasan has been in good form and will assist in bowling and batting.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
RCB have won five of their opening seven games and are placed third in the points table, with CSK ahead of them on net run-rate.
Virat Kohli-led RCB have lost several players due to the postponement of the league. They have lost five players due to injury or withdrawal, and they’ve named some quality replacements for them.
Washington Sundar, Daniel Sams, Adam Zampa, Kane Richardson, and Finn Allen will miss out. They’ll be replaced by Akash Deep, Dushmantha Chameera, Wanindu Hasaranga, George Garton, and Tim David, respectively.
They will also be sporting a blue jersey for their game against KKR to pay tribute to the frontline workers in the battle against COVID-19.
Waging Odds: Kolkata Knight Riders (2.20) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore(1.66)
KKR are the underdogs and are priced at 2.20, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹220.
RCB are priced at 1.66 and are the favourites. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹166 if they come out as winners.
The venue change is likely to be beneficial for KKR more than RCB, with the latter losing the form and momentum they built over the first seven games. Eoin Morgan-led side will aim to find a way to strengthen their batting department which might cause trouble for their opponents.
KKR will win the match.
