IPL 2020: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: Players To Watch Out For

KKR Will Face RCB In 39th Match Of IPL 2020:

In Match 39 of the ongoing Indian Premier League ( IPL) 2020, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, in Abu Dhabi. Earlier in Match 28, both teams played, with RCB winning by 82 runs. AB de Villiers scored a terrific 73-run unbeaten knock, while Chris Morris took two wickets. At present, KKR are fourth in the league table, with RCB in third place. It will be interesting to see how this season, with Dinesh Karthik having stepped down, KKR performs under Eoin Morgan. Also, De Villiers’ hot form may be a major problem for the Knight Riders.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS

1. Shubman Gill

In their recent Super Over victory over Mumbai Indians (MI), Shubman Gill was his side ‘s top run-scorer. The 21-year-old opened the batting for KKR, scoring 36 runs, packed with five fours, in 37 deliveries. He has scored 311 runs out of nine fixtures in the current season, with a strike rate of 113.91.

2. Andre Russell

In the ongoing IPL 2020 season, Andre Russell was not able to justify his tag as a T20 specialist. For KKR, he was bad, but due to match-winning skills, that does not count him out yet. The cricketer from the West Indies only scored 92 runs out of nine matches, at a strike rate of 131.42. He also took six wickets at 9.72 in nine games.

3. Lockie Ferguson

In his team ‘s previous fixture against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), the pacer played his first IPL 2020 game. A Super Over win was registered by KKR, with Lockie Ferguson taking three wickets. In the Super Over, where he dismissed David Warner and Abdul Samad, two of those wickets came.

ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE

1. Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has found his feet in the United Arab Emirates ( UAE) after a patchy start to the current season. With an unbeaten 90-run knock as his highest performance, he has scored 347 runs from nine matches. He has a 127.57 strike score. He also slammed 18 fours and nine sixes, respectively.

2. AB de Villiers

AB de Villiers came to his side’s rescue with a T20 special knock in RCB’s recent victory over Rajasthan Royals (RR). Out of 22 deliveries, he scored 55 runs and remained unbeaten. It was an innings full of control, consisting of four and six sixes. With two balls remaining in their chase, RCB prevailed. On several occasions, the wicketkeeper-batsman has already been a match-winner for his team and will once again be a strong tool.

3. Chris Morris

The South African bowler has only played four games and has already recorded nine withdrawals, with an economy of 5.25. He took four wickets in four overs and conceded just 26 runs in his team ‘s latest victory vs. RR.
