After registering their first win of the season, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) are all geared up to take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 10th match of the 17th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday (March 30).

Both teams are carrying a winning momentum into the contest. While RCB defeated Punjab Kings by four wickets in their previous fixture. KKR pipped Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by four runs in a high-scoring thriller at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

The visiting sides have not been able to win a single game this season – a trend that might worry Kolkata Knight Riders. KKR’s bowling felt the heat in the last game when barring Sunil Narine, all the other bowlers struggled to keep the SRH batters under check.

Mitchell Starc, the most expensive buy at the IPL auction, leaked 53 runs in his four overs and would be keen to script a turnaround.
