RCB vs KKR Match Prediction & Preview


The Royal Challengers and Kolkata Knight Riders are set to clash heads on Monday when they battle it out at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Virat Kohli’s side will have high expectations heading into this playoff against the Knight Riders. They have won four of their last five matches, with their only loss coming against the last-placed Sunrisers by four runs.

It will be an interesting tussle between the Knight Riders lethal bowling attack and the depth of Royal Challengers batting line-up. Glenn Maxwell has been superb in the back end of the campaign, with four half centuries in his last five matches. The middle order will be a crucial part of the Royal Challengers success in this encounter.

Meanwhile, the Knight Riders have hit their best strides, at the right time of the season. They ended their home and away campaign with a commanding 86 run triumph against the Rajasthan Royals.

However, their history against the Royal Challengers is not kind to them. Losing four of their previous five meetings, although they did beat them comfortably in the last encounter. The winner of this clash will face the Super Kings in 2021 IPL final.

It has the makings to be an intriguing contest between these two sides, in which I believe the Royal Challengers will triumph and make it into the IPL playoff final to have a chance of winning their first ever IPL premiership.
