Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kolkata Knight Riders – Match Preview

The Royal Challengers managed to break a lengthy losing streak against the Kolkata Knight Riders when these two teams last met.

Prior to 2019’s victory, Bangalore had lost their last four meetings with the Knight Riders. The Royal Challengers are still chasing a maiden IPL title.

Where: Sharjah Cricket Stadium

When: Monday, 12 October 2020

Start time: 14:00 GMT (19:30 IST)

Pitch conditions: The Sharjah Stadium was a very high-scoring venue during the opening couple of weeks of the IPL 2020. The pitch has started to slow a bit, with batsmen now struggling for timing. This definitely brings the bowlers back into the contest. But they’ll have to negotiate the dew factor in the second innings.

Weather conditions: Monday is forecast to be hot in Sharjah. That’s nothing new and neither is no prediction of rain. It’s dry and humid in the United Arab Emirates, but the players are adapting.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kolkata Knight Riders – Team News

Bangalore might be tempted to get Josh Philippe back into the XI – and it’ll be interesting to see if Adam Zampa is fit enough to play again. Importantly, all-rounder Chirs Morris is back and playing after injury.

Regardless, it’s probable Navdeep Saini will be retained. He did well enough the win over CSK.

For the Knight Riders, seamer Prasidh Krishna got a game against Punjab. He might be kept for this match, too.

Rahul Tripathi seems the right option to open the batting with Shubman Gill, leaving pinch-hitter Sunil Narine to come in down the order.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction

Our team have these free cricket betting tips and predictions for you, for this match. They are based on our years of experience, the form of the players and the best odds.

Make Moeen Your Top Batsman for RCB

Bangalore’s batting has obviously been lacking, so it’s good that they’ve found room for Moeen Ali in the XI.

The England all-rounder can bring a lot of impetus. He’s a good pick at 9.0 with 22Bet to be the Challengers’ top batsman.

Yes, you could pick AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli in the same market, but Ali is going to offer better value if it comes off.

Bet on a Maiden to Happen

The Sharjah pitch seems to be slowing. Although the boundaries at the stadium are smaller than at the other IPL 2020 grounds, some batsmen have struggled to get the ball off the square most recently.

Bangalore have gone for relatively long patches without hitting a boundary in some matches this tournament. You could do well to bet on a maiden being bowled. There have been six maidens in the 2020 IPL.

1xBet have total overs with no runs scored over 0.5 priced at 3.4 and it looks a solid pick.

Pick Udana for Player of the Match

Bangalore have been quite adamant in picking Sri Lankan all-rounder Isuru Udana ahead of South African pace ace Dale Steyn.

Udana is a good option with the new ball and can fire down the order with the bat. As an all-rounder, he’s well-positioned in 1xBet’s player of the match markets.

Rather than opt for a batsman or a bowler, go for Udana, who can do both, at 21.0 to be the player of the match. It’s one of the longer shots, but worth taking.
